Metal forming lubricants

Speciality lubricants for hot metal forming operations

Excellent part quality, optimum machinery utilization, reduced operating cost, lower environmental impact: whenever tolerances in industrial applications decrease, our commitment to developing lubricants increases. Conventional forging, non-ferrous metal forming, high-speed or precision forging, LUBRODAL metal forming lubricants are connected with the highest quality and excellent application results all over the world. We develop all of our specialty lubricants in close cooperation with the users – for highest part quality, process stability and economical results. The core product range described in the following pages fulfills the requirements of standard hot forming processes, from simple to complex. For special forming processes still more products are available upon request.


Fields of application for hot metal forming lubricants in the forging process

The forging industry is a broad field of different applications, each with a high level of special requirements for the needed lubricants. Products of the LUBRODAL range cover all established forging applications and related processes. Starting from scale reduction products over graphite pre-coatings for warm forging to all different kinds of tool lubrication – e.g. for warm or hot forging, high-speed or precision forging, reducer or ring rolling, seamless tube manufacturing and much more.

Billet pretreatment

Scale that forms during heating of the billets has negative effects on the part quality and on the die life.

Billet faces sticking to each other can cause interruptions that lead to an unstable process. A pretreatment with the products of the LUBRODAL range, which have been specifically designed for such a purpose, can help to minimise these effects.

Die lubrication

The lubricants of the LUBRODAL series cover a wide range of applications. Due to the great variety of parameters in forging each application has to be considered separately.

Our experts will be pleased to support you in this matter. In general it has to be noted that all water-based die lubricants need to be sprayed. In deep cavities with long extrusion paths (e.g. when forging crankshafts), graphite-free water-based products reach their limits. For applications like this, products containing graphite must be used.


Lubricants for hot metal forming

During hot forming processes, lubrication and cooling of the tools are necessary. As the geometry of the parts is becoming more and more complex, the requirements for the lubricants are also constantly increasing.

The modern LUBRODAL metal forming lubricants fulfill these increased requirements, so that today it is possible to work with environmentally friendly graphite-water dispersions in many forging operations in which oil/graphite products were previously used.

Economic working, excellent cooling of the tools and optimal flow behavior can be realized, when LUBRODAL products are combined with modern spraying systems.

Non-water-miscible hot forming lubricants are suitable for particularly complex forming processes with long flow paths.

In this field of application, the products of the HYKOGEEN series fulfill highest demands. Due to the excellent lubrication properties of graphites in oil-based carrier liquids, high tool life and optimal part quality are guaranteed.

Today, in the interest of reducing contamination and environmental pollution, die lubricants that can be diluted with water are preferred.

Over the years, the importance of graphite-free formulations, also known as white to transparent lubricants, has vastly increased, particularly due to the needs of industrial hygiene.

These products are also well suited to forging operations in which graphitefree products would previously never have been considered. White LUBRODAL products have now accordingly proven themselves for these applications. From rolling machines over conventional forging presses and hammers to modern, fully automated high-speed-forging-machines there is a very wide field of applications.
