THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION
WHY GO OIL FREE?
Reduced Tooling Cost & Down Time
IRMCO FLUIDS provide optimal protection for tooling surfaces and parts – reducing wear and downtime related to maintenance. The improvements to tool life result in increased efficiencies and line speeds.
As IRMCO FLUIDS do not contain oil – they offer improved part cleanliness and weld-through capability over straight oil, emulsifiable oil based chemistries and pigmented emulsions.
In many instances, pre-treatment process bath life can be increased over oil-based lubricants and cleaning temperatures can be reduced – saving energy and improving safety.
Welding, Assembly, Cleaning and Painting
In most cases, parts formed with IRMCO products can be welded or assembled without prior cleaning, providing significant energy and process efficiency savings. IRMCO lubricants have the highest rating for reducing paint defects, caused by residual lubricant.
Industry Leading Performance
IRMCO mandrel bending gel has become the benchmark lubricant for tube and pipe bending worldwide. Chosen by many of the major worldwide OEM exhaust manufacturers, IRMCO gels enable tube manipulation companies to produce clean non-drip bends and tubes that can be welded without washing, even when using stainless steel. IRMCO are the only company with 4 non-oil metal forming aerospace approvals.
