ALUMOL™ - Aluminium Wire Drawing Lubricants

High-performance, hot-rolling and wire-drawing lubricants for pure aluminium and aluminium alloy

Alumol™ is a range of high-performance lubricants specifically developed for the drawing of aluminium and aluminium alloy wire. All of the products in the Alumol™ range contain an optimised combination of natural and synthetic lubricity additives.

The Alumol™ range’s high affinity for aluminium provides exceptional film strength to deliver outstanding surface finish and die life. The use of high-purity base oil and the latest antioxidant technology minimises thermal degradation and significantly extends service life. In addition all Alumol™ products have the ability to absorb small quantities of water – preventing problems such as wire breaks and surface scratching that are usually caused by ingress of moisture.

In use, experience has shown that Alumol™ drawing lubricants will deliver maximum benefits when used in conjunction with the VRX additive and Filtermet centrifugal filtration system. Together these products deliver significantly enhanced service life, reduce costs and improve production efficiency.

A range of high-performance wire rope lubricants

Rope-Tek™ WRD is a range of high-performance lubricants, specifically designed to lubricate and protect steel wire ropes. Each product is formulated from high-performance base oils and thickeners and contains an advanced additive system that minimises friction and wear and delivers outstanding corrosion protection.

Steel wire ropes are complex in construction and are subject to arduous operating conditions. Movement such as loading and unloading of the rope, bending and flexing over sheaves and pulleys, creates high load points where wires and strands cross over each other. This can result in fretting wear and corrosion, reducing the life of the rope.

The high-load carrying solids contained in Rope-Tek™ WRD products form a low-friction barrier between the metal surfaces, minimising frictional contact and wear.

Due to the vastly different environments that wire ropes have to operate in, Metalube® has a comprehensive range of wire rope lubricants to provide the right product for every condition and situation.
