Inoxol 5108 stainless steel wire lubricant
Metalube launched a semi-synthetic oil, Inoxol™ 5108, at Wire & Cable India 2012. This latest addition to its lubricant range is specifically designed for the wet drawing of stainless steel wire and significantly outperforms rival products.
Inoxol™ 5108 contains the very latest synthetic additives, improving film strength and providing outstanding extreme-pressure and anti-wear properties.
Technical Director, Chris Nettleship says: "Our test results for this product are exceptional. We are witnessing excellent drawing performance that will considerably extend the life of dies, and as the cost of dies is noticeably higher than that of a lubricant, the results speak for themselves. Inoxol™ 5108 will radically reduce customer overheads."
Inoxol™ 5108 also contains special additives to minimise thermal and oxidative degradation of the oil, extending the service life of the oil, reducing both the quantity of oil consumed as well as the cost of waste oil disposal. The improved lubricity benefits provided by these additives also produce an exceptionally bright surface finish.
Laboratory wear tests have shown that INOXOL 5108 reduces wear by more than 20% compared to its nearest rival.
Metalube specialises in wire and tube drawing lubricants, working with wire, cabling and tubing manufacturers across the world. The headquarters are in Manchester, UK, where the site incorporates offices with warehousing, laboratories and manufacturing facilities.
