Aluminum Stamping Lubricants

IRMCO offers oil-free, fully synthetic aluminum stamping lubricants for complex applications.

ALUMINUM SUBSTRATES:

  • Gaining attention for automotive light-weighting purposes.
  • “Softer” than conventional, HSLA & AHSS steels.
  • Comparatively more “abrasive” surface oxides compared to steels.
  • Challenging to form more complex geometries.
  • Historically heavy reliance on chlorinated paraffin-based lubricants to form.
  • Staining potential is greater than with steels – surface oxides harder to finish/paint.

IRMCO’s SOLUTIONS FOR ALUMINUM METAL-STAMPING:

  • Mineral oil-free chemistries offer clean operation and inspection.
  • Better biodegradability and safer environmental/regulatory profile.
  • All water-based chemistries very compatible with lower temperature and lower pH cleaning.
  • More compatible with aqueous cleaning and pretreatment systems.
