New Heavy Duty Synthetic Forging Lubricant
Dylon Industries Inc. has developed Grade FW-3382 a heavy-duty synthetic forging lubricant. Grade FW-3382 is a water-based, forging lubricant that out-performs all other synthetics.
Dylon Grade FW-3382 is designed to forge difficult, warm or hot ferrous metals. FW-3382 can also be used on jobs that involve upsetting or extrusion. Another special difference of Grade FW-3382 is its ability to readily coat and wet hot dies. Grade FW-3382 can be used on dies with temperatures from 225°F - 600°F (107°C - 315°C). This heavy-duty lubricant provides outstanding metal movement and does not build up like other synthetics.
Dylon Grade FW-3382 provides the lubrication demanded by today's progressive forging operations. The higher dilution ratios, coupled with performance at these dilutions, make it more economical than any other synthetics.
Dylon Grade FW-3382 is designed to dilute easily with water, even hard water. Dilution ratios depend on the severity of the job, but are usually 10:1 (ten parts water to one part concentrate) or greater. Grade FW-3382 can be spray applied to dies. Best results are obtained when the diluted Grade FW-3382 is sprayed by conventional methods.
Spraying is highly recommended because it produces the most uniform coatings and better control of metal movement.
