Innovative Lubricants for Current Stamping Challenges
As higher yield strength steel alloys are developed and commercialized, formability decreases, while work hardening and associated spring back become more pronounced, often accelerating tool and coating wear. Selecting a lubricant that is designed to meet increasingly difficult forming conditions is a necessity for robust process design. FUCHS’ lubricant product range is comprised of all lubricant types used in press working for all alloys including ferrous, aluminum, magnesium and coated steels.
The growing variety of steel grades and part complexities used in finished product designs demand lubricants with the versatility to meet all die lube needs in the shop, while also providing corrosion protection to multiple substrate surface types. Ultimately, the lubricant residue must be compatible with the available cleaning system, or be sufficiently inert that cleaning is not required before further processing or assembly. FUCHS chemistries provide you with choices to optimize your entire process including cleaning, corrosion protection, adhesives or paint applications.
Employees and employers alike demand fluids that are safe in the work place. The regulatory environment demands innovation in lubricant design to assure compliance and minimize costs and risks related to fluid use, recirculation, treatment or disposal. FUCHS press lubes are designed to meet or exceed the latest regulations, and most often in advance of regulatory needs, such as chlorinated paraffin replacement.

Lightweighting of vehicles has become a significant part of the automotive industry’s strategy to meet CAFE fuel efficiency standards. The use of aluminum, boron/martensite steel, and AHSS is lightening vehicles, but forming these metals have created new challenges for the industry.
FUCHS has developed new lubricant technologies that can help resolve many of the issues associated with lightweighting.
- Automotive OEM-approved forming lubricants that increase compatibility with adhesives in aluminum body panel stampings
- Boron nitride-free lubricants specifically for use in hot forming aluminum
- Chlorine-free lubricants to stamp advanced high-strength steel
- High temperature lubricants that can be used in hot forming boron steel
