Why Oil-Free Industrial Lubricant?

Oil-free, water-based stamping lubricants may offer many benefits for your applications over oil-based lubricants. Traditional oil-based lubricants employ materials like pigments, fats & other water-insoluble additives that can negatively impact application equipment & worker safety as well as increase housekeeping costs. Some of the potential benefits of IRMCO’s oil-free lubricants include:

  • Cleaner weld-through properties
  • Easier mixing & delivery through conventional equipment
  • Cleaner, easier to inspect parts
  • Reducing Production V.O.C
  • Less energy required to remove from stamped parts in finishing
  • Excellent environmental safety profile
