Archived Forum Admin created the topic: Best dry lubricant for continuous wire drawing
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.
