As the name implies Oilfree Lubricants Ltd supply a range of non-oil metal forming lubricants, to replace traditional oils in pressings, stampings and all types of metal forming.
IRMCO non-oil metal forming lubricants offer a complete range of products to cover the demanding requirements of today’s metal forming industries. From advanced high strength steels in automotive pressings to gels for tube and pipe bending.
This range of polymer based metal forming lubricants, eliminates the downsides of using oil based products in the metal forming process. Our non-oil lubricants cover all types of metal processes including; metal stamping, metal forming, deep drawing, punching and shearing, in fact if you have a metal process using oil as a lubricant then we can offer a non-oil alternative.
The IRMCO polymer chemistry enables better metal flow and reduced tool wear. A thin coating of IRMCO product will produce parts, that would normally have been flooded with oil.
Advanced High Strength Steel.
IRMCO extreme temperature high solid polymer technology has been developed for the exacting demands of advanced high strength steel within the automotive industry. This thin film technology will produce parts in all grades of advanced and ultra-high strength steel, with tensile strengths as high as 1180.
Assembly, Cleaning and Paint.
In most cases parts formed with IRMCO products can be welded or assembled without prior cleaning, providing significant energy and process efficiency savings. IRMCO lubricants have the highest rating for reducing paint defects, caused by residual lubricant.
Tube Bending Lubricant.
IRMCO mandrel bending gel has become the benchmark lubricant for tube and pipe bending worldwide. Chosen by many of the major OEM exhaust manufacturers. IRMCO gels enable tube manipulation companies to produce clean non drip bends and tubes that can be welded without washing, even on stainless steel.
A tier one component in advanced high strength steel was producing a scrap rate of 45%. See how the change to IRMCO non-oil polymer lubricant, reduced scrap rate to less than 1%.
