HIGH PERFORMANCE NON-OIL STAMPING LUBRICANTS


IRMCO FLUIDS® high performance stamping lubricants are oil-free alternatives to traditional oils. Exhaustively tested in laboratory and field production processes, IRMCO FLUIDS have demonstrated the ability to replace chlorinated and other, conventional, oil-based stamping lubricants, in severe stamping and forming processes.


OPTIMISED APPLICATION: IRMCO FLUIDS provide a highly protective and lubricious micro-layer of lubricating film during demanding stamping and forming applications. This attribute translates to lower volumes of lubricant required to protect tooling and production parts – optimising process economy and efficiency. IRMCO FLUIDS are easily applied via conventional roller and spray applicators and form stable, true solutions.

REDUCED TOOLING COST & DOWN TIME: IRMCO FLUIDS provide optimal protection for tooling surfaces and parts – reducing wear and downtime related to maintenance. The improvements to tool life result in increased efficiencies and line speeds.

CLEAN RUNNING: As IRMCO FLUIDS do not contain oil – they offer improved part cleanliness and weld-through capability over straight oil and emulsifiable oil based chemistries and pigmented emulsions. In many instances, pre-treatment process bath life can be increased over oil-based lubricants and cleaning temperatures can be reduced – saving energy and improving safety.

FINISHING PROCESS COMPATIBLE: The lower loading characteristic of IRMCO stamping fluids in pre-treatment baths reduces sludge and scale formation compared to oil containing stamping fluids. Less scale and sludge formation extends pump and heat exchanger life and reduces maintenance associated with “boil-outs” and blocked spray nozzles. Additionally; less temperature is needed to remove IRMCO fluids from surfaces – making IRMCO fluids more compatible with transition metal coating (TMC) processes and low-temperature or conventional iron and zinc phosphates. IRMCO fluids are very compatible with aqueous immersion, spray and ultrasonic cleaning. Automotive e-coat, powder paint and porcelain enamelling surface pre-treatment processes can all be optimised using IRMCO stamping fluids.
