Hot Wire Drawing Lubricant Suppliers

4 years 3 months ago #2845 by Mike J Clover
Does anyone know of a supplier of hot wire drawing lubricants? I'm looking for a supplier of water based colloidal graphite preferably specifically for hot wire drawing applications as most graphite suppliers products are for mould release applications which are not neccesarily suitable for hot wire drawing.

Hi Mike,
Long time since we last conversed.

You might have a talk with the folks at Plasmait plasmait.com/ because they have done a lot of successful work in removing the last traces of graphite from wire. Molybdenum perhaps.

It could mean business for them as well.
