Synthetic, Concentrated Metalforming LubricantFebruary 1, 2009
Pico Chemical Corp., Chicago Heights, IL, introduces Picodraw 4042 synthetic lubricant, which it says effectively replaces sulfurized straight-oil lubricants in the drawing and forming of carbon and stainless steels and aluminum alloys.
A concentrate, Picodraw 4042 may be mixed with water by as much as 90 percent, and can reduce lubrication consumption by 50 percent. The lube cleans easily, eliminating cumbersome, time-consuming and costly additional in-process or post-process steps. Its water-like consistency proves ideal for spray application, providing efficient coverage. And, it offers corrosion protection without staining parts, dies or machines.
