Stainless Steel Stamping Lubricants

Stainless Steel Stamping Lubricants

Stainless steel components offer excellent chemical & corrosion resistance & a desirable visual aesthetic in consumer goods. The hard, comparatively smooth surface & differences in yield & tensile strengths & work-hardening of different alloy compositions present special requirements in stamping applications. Stainless steel components are often very high-profile parts- requiring excellent surface finish. For many decades, stainless steels were stamped with high viscosity oils or Chlorinated paraffin-containing emulsifiable & straight oils. While effective, these types of products create numerous cleaning, regulatory & disposal issues. IRMCO developed oil-free, fully synthetic, high-performance stamping fluids to help reduce or eliminate dependency on those older generation, oil-based chemistries.

IRMCO’s oil-free, fully synthetic stamping fluids have been providing clean running, operator friendly, environmentally safe alternatives to oil & chlorinated paraffin-containing stamping fluids for decades. With a decades-long record of success in stamping components including automotive OEM emission & exhaust systems & high-profile appliance panels, IRMCO has the oil-free stamping fluid for your needs.
