There is an alternative to oil.


As the name implies, Oilfree Lubricants Ltd supply a range of non-oil metal forming fluids, to replace traditional metal forming oils.


We are the authorised distributor of IRMCO lubricants for the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland and supply a complete range of non-oil lubricants 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.


 

The IRMCO range of polymer based metal forming lubricants, eliminate the downsides of using oil based products in the metal pressing/stamping process. Our  non-oil lubricants cover all types of metal processes including; metal stamping, metal forming, deep drawing, punching and shearing, perforating and roll forming. 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 with reduced tool wear. A thin coating of IRMCO product will enable parts to be formed, 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 and the 980-323 range is the first non-oil metal forming lubricant to be approved by the Ford Motor Co. 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 worldwide 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. IRMCO are the only company with 4 non-oil metal forming aerospace approvals.
