Metal Mates - Innovative Metalforming Lubricants and Fluids


Heavy-Duty High Strength Steel Stamping, Drawing, Punching and Forming

A semi-synthetic stamping and drawing lubricant with technologically advanced lubricants added to our proven HDP formulation for high strength steel and other heavy duty applications. HDP-HSS has all the advantages of soluble oil and synthetic without their disadvantages in heavy-duty applications. It provides excellent physical and chemical lubricity without leaving a heavy oil residue like soluble oils and it won’t turn sticky or gummy on parts and dies like synthetics.

HDP-HSS combines the highest extreme pressure, barrier and anti-wear additives with corrosion protection to work effectively in high strength steel and other heavy-duty drawing, stamping, punching, flanging and forming operations.


  • Longer die and punch life in HSS and heavy-duty operations
  • Dilute with water as needed for specific applications
  • No cleaning required before welding
  • Excellent rust protection
  • Reduces scrap
  • Improves part quality
  • Eliminates scoring and cracking
  • Won’t build up on dies
  • Cleaner, safer work environment


Spray, brush, roll coat or drip. Good on multiple substrates, please call or click for consultation on specific applications.

HDP-HSS - Longer Press Life in HSS Applications

Improve Die Life, Increase Productivity
A Midwest manufacturer of semi perforated extrusion parts with very tight tolerances needed a better lubricant to improve their die life and increase productivity. After switching to HDP-HSS the press speed was increased by 50% and punch life increased from 5,000 parts to 40,000 parts per run.

"I love Metal Mates (VS and HDP). We run some really tough HSS (high strength steel) parts and they use to get really hot in the die. But not with Metal Mates, it keeps the parts and the die cool."
