Metal Forming


The Right Lubricant for You

Metal forming processes can be extremely harsh on both tooling and the parts to be formed. Lubricants for these processes can be either water or oil based. Water-based products will have the advantage of dispersing heat better than oil-based products. Alternatively, oil-based products can incorporate powerful extreme pressure additives to help achieve superior lubricity. These two types of products can perform very well in a wide range of processes. The severity and parameters of your process will dictate what type of product will perform best.


Whether using an oil- or a water-based product, Magnus offers a wide range of metal forming lubricants.
