Glenview, IL - September 15, 2009 - Metal Mates' unique line of high strength steel lubricants are specifically engineered for use on advanced high strength steels (AHSS), and difficult drawing, stamping, piercing, and flanging applications. Depending on the severity of forming application and grade and thickness of the steel Metal Mates has three different formulations,
Metal Mates VS-HSS and HDP-HSS combine anti-wear, extreme pressure, and corrosion protection for the complete range of high strength steels, including Dual Phase (DP), Transformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP) , Complex Phase (CP), and Martensitic (MART).
Metal Mates GN-64 is an environmentally-conscious synthetic formulation that can be diluted with water to perform in a wide range of stamping and forming applications. Technologically advanced extreme pressure and anti-wear additives increase die life and produce high quality parts in light, medium, and high strength steel applications. Metal Mates GN-64 provides excellent corrosion protection over a wide range of dilutions and is easy to clean.
None of the Metal Mates HSS lubricants need to be cleaned before welding operations and they all improve die life, part quality, reduce scrap, and save time and money. ITW ROCOL North America designs and manufactures a full line of coolants and lubricants for the metalworking industry including the Metal Mates product line of stamping, drawing, and forming lubricants, anti-splatter compounds, and corrosion inhibitors.
