Oil-Based Forming Fluid

Certain forming operations are so demanding they still require the use of EP fortified stamping fluids.  In these situations, PETRO FORM 500 provides excellent performance assuring complete fill of the deepest dive cavities, smooth extrusion of the most difficult of geometries, and no metal-to-metal contact when it comes to piercing/stamping operations.

Applications & Usage

PETRO FORM 500 can be used to punch, draw, stamp,
extrude or form all alloys in all operations. As with all
products, testing should be conducted to assure desired
results are achieved before moving into full production.
The oil-based metal forming fluid and lubricant is normally used neat as received but in some instances can be diluted back with mineral oil
and/or solvents for a specific application. The product is
most often sprayed onto die surfaces but can also be
applied via dipping parts, brushing, and/or pouring.
