HDP 970-40 Severe-Duty Stamping Lubricant
Metal Mates HDP 970-40 is a severe-duty lubricant for stamping, forming, drawing, piercing, punching, and flanging of heavy gauge steel, ultra high strength steel, or stainless steel.
This semi-synthetic lubricant combines extreme pressure, barrier, and anti-wear additives in a formulation that is ideal for difficult forming, stamping, and drawing operations. HDP offers all the advantages of soluble oils and synthetics without their disadvantages in heavy-duty applications. Provides excellent physical and chemical lubricity without leaving a heavy oil residue (unlike soluble oils and synthetics). Won’t turn sticky or gummy on parts and dies.
Easy clean-up with no pre-weld wash needed. Recommended for use with 0.200" - 0.330" thick cold-rolled, electro-galvanized (galvanneal), hot-dip galvanized, stainless, high-strength steel (HSS), and ultra-high-strength steels (UHSS). Can be diluted for use with materials down to 0.035"
- No cleaning required before welding
- Improves die life
- Excellent rust protection
- Reduces scoring and cracking on UHSS & other materials
- No sticky residue
- Won’t build up on dies
- Cleaner, safer work environment
