Due to the complexities of the die casting production process, proper die lubricant selection can be a laborious task.
PLUNGER SLICK® 130 incorporates the highest quality base stock to ensure consistent performance at high temperatures this increased thermal stability allows for minimized potential decomposition products that contribute to process defects, such as porosity.
This new emulsion was developed to reduce the risk of fire, protect the stationary and moving components of the trim die, and leave a clean uniform coating on the trim die and die cast.
With over 80 years of die lubricant formulation experience in the high pressure die casting market, we have observed the major lubricant characteristics that determine die lubricant performance in a production environment. The main lubricant characteristics are, solids content, thermodynamic stability, composition and decomposition cleanliness.
