  • Features



Extending tool life
Effective even in very small quantities (thin filmlubrication)
Particularly effective on highgrade steel and aluminium
Pretreated components can be handled and despatched without risk of contamination


Suitable for cold forming of austenitic and ferritic steels, aluminium and its alloys, copper and brass; also as a noncontaminating lubricant in the paper and textile industries and wherever clean lubrication is required.
Used successfully for deepdrawing,embossing, stamping, bending, cold extrusion and cold forging of aluminium, for the calibration of metal parts; also for lubricating selftapping screws, cutting blades, guide rails, furniture hinges and joints.

It is used in friction

  • Sliding bearings
  • Sliding guideways
  • Threaded connections


  • Cold resistance
  • Good anticorrosion properties (good corrosion protection)
  • Compatible with many plastics
  • Compatible with many elastomers

Problems to be Solved material

  • Details sticking after technological operations (pressure forming, molding, etc...)
  • Corrosion
  • Frequent re-lubrication
  • Plastic and elastomer details deformation and destruction

The combination of materials friction pair

  • Metal - Metal
  • Metal - Plastic
  • Metal - Elastomer
