Press Release Summary:
Grade FW-3301 water-based forging lubricant contains micro-fine graphite and EP additives. It is designed to forge difficult, warm or hot ferrous, non-ferrous and super alloy metals. Lubricant can be used to wet dies with temperatures from 250 to 1000Â°F. It provides outstanding metal movement and anti-solder properties for demanding forging operations. FW-3301 dilutes with water and can be spray applied to dies for uniform coating.

New Ultra-High Temperature Forging Lubricant
Dylon Industries Inc. has developed Grade FW-3301 a heavy-duty ultra high temperature forging lubricant. Grade FW-3301 is a water-based, forging lubricant that contains micro-fine graphite and special EP additives.
Dylon Grade FW-3301 is designed to forge difficult, warm or hot ferrous, non-ferrous and super alloy metals. Grade FW-3301 is also suitable as a back extrusion lubricant. The unique difference of Grade FW-3301 is its ability to wet dies that are hotter than usual. Grade FW-3301 can be used on dies with temperatures from 250°F - 1000°F (121°C - 538°C). This heavy-duty lubricant provides outstanding metal movement and superior anti-solder properties for the most demanding of forging operations. It provides superior release properties and works where other lubricants can't.
Dylon Grade FW-3301 provides the enhanced lubrication and die cooling demanded by today's progressive forging operations. These properties provide an extension in die life which results in less downtime and reduced scrap rates.
Dylon Grade FW-3301 is designed to dilute easily with water. Dilution ratios depend on the severity of the job, but are usually 5:1 (five parts water to one part concentrate) or
greater. Grade FW-3301 can be spray applied to dies. Best results are obtained when the diluted Grade FW-3301 is sprayed by conventional methods. Spraying is highly recommended because it produces the most uniform coatings and better control of metal movement.
