Automotive Seat Component


Project Scope: Reduce lubricant consumption and weld defects while not compromising tool-life.

Metal Substrate: HRPO SAE J2340 420XF – 0.945” (2.4mm) THICKNESS

IRMCO Product: IRMCO FLUIDS® 146-N01 @ 8:1 dilution ratio (11.1%)

Process Improvements:

  1. IRMCO FLUIDS 146-N01 at 8:1 ratio (11.1%) replaced the competitive fluid used at 5:1 ratio (16.6%) – cutting direct fluid consumption by over 30%.
  2. IRMCO process optimization further reduced the amount of fluid required through application equipment to make the parts by 15%.
  3. Press speed and production rates were not compromised.
  4. IRMCO FLUIDS 146-N01 left more negligible residue on parts – allowing for easier part inspection and fewer welding related defects.
