High performance vanishing Oils, Vanishing Lubricants, Evaporative Lubricants: Metal Forming lubricants For Aluminum, Copper & Brass

It is advantageous to use Vanishing Lubricants that disappears after it has done its job. These materials leave a light coating of lubricant on the part during processing and then evaporate shortly thereafter. In many cases these vanishing lubricants can completely eliminate cleaning operations. Our vanishing oils will not turn tacky or gummy, have mild or no odor and are designed to always stay fluid. Vanishing lubricants can be used on ferrous and nonferrous metals.
Products are shipped as super concentrates for savings in freight costs to 65 countries on 5 continents.
Ultra-high performance vanishing Oils: Recent developments in advanced lubricant technology has allowed us to engineer advanced vanishing oils with significantly higher performance over traditional solvent based lubricants. These lubricants have the following characteristics and benefits:

  • It performs as High Performance mineral based lubricants, and subsequently leaves the parts non-oily for further handling
  • Fast drying time due to rapid evaporation rate
  • Non-oily film due to special additives enables handling and welding without degreasing
  • Weld-able, can be welded through with no adverse fumes and anti spatter performance

High Performance

a. Aluminum (+alloys) 1mm-3mm
b. Zintec 1mm-3mm
c. Stainless (304, 316, etc) 1mm-3mm
d. Mild steel (Hot Rolled (HR4) , S355 (50B)) 1mm-6mm

Clean in use due to the absence of oily residues – excellent corrosion prevention.

Viscosity for Evaplubes is 15 to 16.5 seconds on Zahn #2 cup. This viscosity is 0 in centistokes.

Sometimes it is advantageous to use a lubricant that disappears after it has done its job. These materials leave a light coating of lubricant on the part during processing and then evaporate shortly thereafter. In many cases these lubricants can completely eliminate cleaning operations. Our vanishing oils will not turn tacky or gummy, have no odor and are designed to always stay fluid. Recommended for use on virtually all metals.

Spray Lubrication for Punching and Roll Forming

General Chemical specializes in formulating vanishing oils motor oil and solvent based metal working lubricants. Vanishing oils evaporate leaving the surface dry and oil free; they eliminate cleaning and reduce costs. Some medium to heavy duty vanishing oils may leave a miniscule film, which generally does not require removal. All vanishing lubricants can be used on ferrous and nonferrous metals.

Vanishing Oil is a solvent based lubricant. It leaves a thin imperceptible film of lubricant. Vanishing Lubricant facilitates a clean die release of thin sheet or roll stock. The solvent carrier in Vanishing oil generally dries in one to four hours. Normally, cleaning is not required after using this product.
