"Before we switched to Metal Mates we had a lot of problems with excessive scoring, which was really tearing up our dies. When we tried running Metal Mates (OVS) for the first time we didn’t polish the die before and after just 25 hits the scoring was completely eliminated and the die looked like new. We’ve been using it ever since."
