Aluminum Stamping Lubricants

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

Aluminum stamping continues to expand and gain attention for automotive light-weighting purposes. Replacing mild and high strength steels with aluminum components can shed weight from vehicles – increasing fuel efficiency and making electric vehicles (EVs) more practical. The comparatively soft, but abrasive surface characteristics of aluminum present different challenges from HSLA & AHSS components – especially where complex geometries or deep-drawn parts are concerned. IRMCO understands these challenges and has numerous options for aluminum stamping lubricants to help replace oil-based stamping lubricants for aluminum forming applications.

IRMCO’s oil-free, fully synthetic stamping fluids form stable and true solutions in water and impart clean running, mild residues that are easily cleaned in aqueous cleaners and surface pretreatment systems. IRMCO FLUIDS have been reliably stamping aluminum components for durable consumer/household goods, lighting and automotive OEM frame and panel components for automotive light-weighting applications.
