HDP HSS Severe-Duty HSS Stamping Lubricant

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

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-HSS 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 (like soluble oils and synthetics do) and it 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"
