TOPIC: Best dry lubricant for continuous wire drawing

Best dry lubricant for continuous wire drawing 1 year 9 months ago #1990

Greetings,

Can anyone advise me on the best "dry lubricant" for continuous wire drawing from size 5.5mm to 0.75mm?

The wire is carbon steel wire - rimmed equivalent grade similar to SWRM6R rimmed steel(carbon content 0.06%); another type i am thinking of using is SWRM8K killed steel wire (carbon content max. 0.1%).

i need the drawn wire to be easily cleaned, that means the dry lubricant is not thick and sticky.

Regards,
wong

Depending on the number of passes, you could use a calcuim base lubricant for the first two or three die boxes and the rest a sodium base lubricant.

Contact dry drawing lubricant manufactures like:
