An environmentally friendly, one-step lubricant has been performing effectively and reliably in commercial application for over a year at a tube drawing facility. Developed by Sisu Chemicals LLC, Scibond SL-87 is based on an acrylic polymer, like a latex paint. It is a suitable replacement for the zinc phosphate and halogenated oil lubricants used in high stress applications, like tube drawing and cold heading — and cold forging.
One Step Closer to a Solution
A commercially proven polymer formula offers an environmentally friendly end to cold-forgers’ search for a zinc-phosphate alternative.
