Metal Mates - Innovative Metalforming Lubricants and Fluids

Metal Mates - Innovative Metalforming Lubricants and Fluids

Part Quality

Clean, clean and clean. Metal Mates lubricants are inherently clean; unlike our competitors, our products won’t turn sticky or tacky in the die. Anyone who has spent time around stamping knows the primary cause of scoring and galling is metal chips and fines trapped in the die by lubricant residue. Metal Mates eliminates scoring and galling by preventing chips and fines from sticking to the die. What’s more, our lubricants rely on chemical anti-wear ingredients, not abrasives or solids, to polish and condition the die.

When it comes to welding, no lubricant produces a better, cleaner, stronger weld, without prewash, than Metal Mates. Our lubricants have built-in flux properties that keep the weld area clean to eliminate weld porosity and improve weld quality and penetration.

The top part was run with a competitor’s product and shows a lot of scoring. The bottom part was with Metal Mates and the scoring is eliminated.





The part on the left was made with a competitor’s product and shows a lot of weld spatter, discoloration and carbonization. The part on the right was with Metal Mates and is much cleaner.
