IRMCO GEL® 986  is a special application lubricant that is a fully synthetic paste with characteristics more of a gel. IRMCO GEL 986 was designed for larger diameter tube-bending of carbon and stainless steels but has also found limited use on a smaller diameter, aluminized stainless tube. IRMCO 986 GEL can be applied through the mandrel or applied manually.



• Contains no mineral oil, pigments, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, zinc or PFTE (“Teflon”)      or any other solid friction modifiers.
• Is viscous-clinging to wipers and mandrel balls preventing/minimizing dripping onto floors.
• Is easily removed in aqueous cleaners in immersion, ultrasonic or spray applications.
• Is used “as received”.
• Is easily waste treated in conventional systems.
• Has successfully replaced chlorinated paraffin containing paste lubricants.
• Is compliant with maintaining ISO 14000 directives.
