980-020 is fully synthetic alternative to oil and pigmented paste lubricants for demanding mandrel tube bending and forming applications.
980-020 provides a micro-layer of lubricating film on metal surfaces, during demanding tube bending applications. This chemical nature and thick viscosity of 980-020 translates to the product “staying put”, resulting in less lubricant dripping off of machinery and less “weeping” of lubricant onto floors. These characteristics allow for these products to be applied in lower volume – reducing lubricant consumption and lowering process costs.
980-020 is the ideal lubricant for small tubes and pipes. It is used extensively in the manufacture of engine/cooling components particularly aluminium tubes.
When applied automatically through the mandrel using the EKO 2 mandrel lubrication system, multi-bend aluminium tubes can be bent using less than 2 grams per pipe.
The most economical lubricant on the market, for small tubes and pipes.
