Water-based lubricants for forges

Protect, insulate and lubricate metals during forging

Water-based lubricants with Oxylub glass powder

Oxylub by ATP is a water-based lubricant with glass powder which has the function of improving hot metal working processes.

An advanced group of water-based, lead-free lubricants specifically formulated to protect, insulate, and lubricate metals during forging and other hot work operations.

Oxylub glass coatings are applied prior to heating for forging and hot extrusion to ensure optimal metal lubrication.

Oxylub water-based lubricant is easy to use and its formulation is designed to respect the environment. They do not require special handling as they can be easily adapted to the requirements of the most diverse hot working operations. This is because it is possible to request customized compositions to obtain the ideal industrial lubricant for the type of heat treatment to be carried out. Furthermore, ATP water lubricants are not flammable and do not require any solvent to be used, guaranteeing greater safety and speed of work.

Deciding to protect and lubricate metals during hot working and forging can be very cost-effective. In fact, the Oxylub water-based lubricant is designed to control the diffusion of gases inside and outside metals, improving the quality of the final product and reducing surface defects. Oxylub industrial lubricants also allow metals to be isolated, avoiding the penetration of hydrogen, and protect them from oxidation phenomena.

Which metals can I treat with Oxylub water-based lubricants?

These water-based coatings can be used during forging and extrusion of different types of metals. In particular they are suitable for titanium alloys, stainless steels and nickel superalloys.
