Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Presswork
A range of lubricants for ferrous and non-ferrous cold and warm metal-forming processes
The Metaform™ range uses the latest oil-based, solvent-based and water-extendable technology to provide a comprehensive range of lubricants for almost every cold and warm forming process.
The range is suitable for use on a variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including aluminium, copper, high-carbon and stainless steels. Metaform™ lubricants can be used on all modern presswork equipment including high-speed progression tools and transfer presses.
Each lubricant contains specially selected additives to provide effective boundary and EP lubrication as required by each operation. Depending on product selection residues can vary from dry-to-the-touch to oily with built-in corrosion protection. All Metaform™ lubricants are Chlorine-free and some products are both Chlorine and Sulphur-free – for the most demanding sectors such as aerospace.
Special products are available for fin-forming applications where R-134a refrigerant compatibility is required. Metaform lubricants are low odour and pleasant to use.
