New metal forming fluids and rust preventatives from Metalube®
PUBLISHED: 30 Jan 14
A new range of lubricants and rust preventatives for the roll forming, cutting and pressing of metallic parts has been launched by Metalube Ltd
A new range of lubricants and rust preventatives for the roll forming, cutting and pressing of metallic parts has been launched by Metalube Ltd. The new range comprises three product groups:
- Cool-Tek™ - water dilutable concentrates for lubrication during forming & cutting processes. Cool-Tek products provide optimum lubrication and cleanliness that extends roll/tool life whilst providing outstanding surface finish. The range has excellent fines handling and settling, along with outstanding corrosion protection.
- Meta-Shield™ - solvent-based rust preventatives that provide up to 24 months protection for bundled sections and parts. Meta-Shield products deposit a self-healing residual film, offering protection against accidental contact.
- Sol-Tek™ - solvent-based lubricants that evaporate after use leaving clean, moisture free sections and parts. This negates the need for cleaning or subsequent treatment.
Metalube's Wayne Thornhill, who developed the new ranges comments: "We are very excited about our new product line. These products have been tailor made for the roll forming of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including galvanised steel. The Meta-Shield™ range of rust preventatives are designed to be used in conjunction with the Cool-Tek™ products. This combination offers impeccable protection on the internal bore and external surfaces of tubes and sections. Our Sol-Tek™ products are evaporative in nature; this eliminates water from the forming process reducing the risk of corrosion, particularly on galvanized parts."
Metalube® is a UK-based manufacturer of specialist industrial lubricants, exporting to over 80 countries worldwide. Research and development is key to its business and the company constantly invests in the Metalube Technology Centre based at its Manchester factory, ensuring technical excellence and innovation across its entire range of products and services.
