Environment and operator-friendly lubrication
PUBLISHED: 06 Aug 10
eco-friendly lubricants, including non-reactive coatings, dry powder lubricants, oils, pastes, greases, protective products and other coating products designed for all wire and tube drawing applications.
The company has large resources invested in R&D laboratories developing advanced and efficient solutions; production facilities ensuring consistent high product standards worldwide; quality control of all finished lubricants and reactive logistic and supply chain solutions. With a history of technical expertise and customised approach, Condat’s aim is to supply the market with products adapted to the most advanced and demanding wire drawing processes.
Vicafil and Steelskin ranges are designed for the latest machinery and processes, but also ensure efficient productivity results on the latest generation of materials. Condat believes the range is the most comprehensive range on the market, able to match all customer application requirements.
The high quality of Condat lubricants allows substantial savings in terms of consumption and guarantees a constant lubricant supply to the die cone, resulting in a consistent drawing performance and clean finish.
For many years, Condat has offered its customers products complying with the latest European environmental regulations, and has advanced product evolution in partnership with its customers with a simple focused objective – to offer eco-friendly solutions that maintain customer process efficiency.
Regarding REACH legislation, Condat is proactive in this field through its Products Regulatory Affairs Department, and participates with several European consortiums. This allows Condat to anticipate the latest R&D developments. Vicafil and Steelskin ranges comply with REACH and the latest health and safety regulations for chemicals and biocides.
Condat’s other R&D philosophy is to find substitutes for potentially dangerous raw materials. Condat’s lubricant ranges have always been free of SVHC (substance of very high concern) and they are compliant with most standards. To meet with the forthcoming legislation on borax, and to anticipate any further evolution, Condat has redesigned its most famous lubricants and offers a choice of low or zero borax surface coatings and drawing powders products for direct substitution.
An oil-based lubricants range now offers vegetable oil-based alternatives, whilst the soluble lubricants range employs renewable raw materials.
The exposure of operators to soap dust is a real concern. Pellet technology utilises a specific production process offering a complete range of non-dust drawing powders (from lean to rich soap formulations, calcium or sodium based).
This technological advance demonstrates how Condat furthers its production performance and product range by anticipating customer requirements.
Condat constantly develops and improves its formulations in order to reduce the environmental effect of its products. With over 150 years’ experience in the lubricants industry, Condat will continue to advance and develop the technologies of tomorrow.
