Straight Oils & Soluble Oils

Straight and Soluble Drawing and Stamping Oils and Lubricants

Straight Oils: International Chemical Company manufactures a complete and highly versatile line of chlorinated straight oils engineered for use in heavy-duty metal-forming operations such as deep drawing, stamping and high-speed stamping. These straight oil metalworking lubricants are optimized for operations utilizing metals such as carbon and stainless steel, kovar metal and hard nickel alloys of steel. All straight oil metalworking lubricants are formulated with a low coefficient of friction to dissipate heat and to provide superior high film strength lubricity. Chlorinated straight oils are ideal industrial lubricants for moderate to severe operations requiring heavy-duty drawing and stamping oils and lubricants, lapping oils and roll-forming lubricants.

Featured Straight Drawing and Stamping Oils:

The International 1211 Series of Straight Oils:

  • International Compound 1211 is the original recipe. It is a versatile, highly-chlorinated and viscous metal-forming lubricant engineered for drawing, stamping and turning operations. ICC 1211 is both economical and highly effective. This straight oil lubricant is ideal for most moderate to severe metal-forming operations.
  • International Compound 1211-P is moderately viscous and engineered for moderate to severe perforating, punching and piercing operations in which a freer-flowing metalworking lubricant is required. It may be re-circulated and applied via all conventional methods. This chlorinated straight oil lubricant is ideally suited for the manufacture of complex and intricate metal components.
  • International Compound 1211-X is highly viscous and highly chlorinated, a heavy-duty metal-forming lubricant that is engineered for use in severe drawing, stamping and other heavy-duty metal-forming operations. It is a highly chlorinated straight oil lubricant formulated specifically to provide a very low coefficient of friction, which is necessary for severe and extreme metal-forming operations.

Soluble Oils: International Chemical Company manufactures a complete and highly-versatile line of soluble oils engineered for the most demanding of metal- forming operations. Soluble oils are water-soluble products, forming robust and stable emulsions when mixed with hard and soft water. They are formulated with powerful extreme pressure (EP) additives to provide maximum tool life and fine finishes. The resulting concentrates consist of base mineral oils, select emulsifiers and proprietary additives. Soluble oil metalworking lubricants are most commonly used for heavy-duty metal-forming operations where die life is the first priority but high film strength lubricity and in-process rust protection are also important. Because they are diluted, soluble oils provide good lubrication and heat transfer performance. Soluble oils also contain surfactants to assist with post manufacturing processes, such as aqueous cleaning.

Featured Soluble Drawing and Stamping Oils:

  • International Compound 920-R is a very heavy-duty metal-forming lubricant. Its combination of special base oils, fatty materials and other select additives provide superior soluble oil performance and excellent emulsion stability. It is engineered for severe stamping, drawing, roll-forming and end-forming operations. ICC 920-R is a very economical–and high performance–alternative to traditional straight oil lubricants. It makes an ideal soluble lubricant for high speed stamping operations.
  • International Compound 920-SN is a special blend of select extreme-pressure additives and very-long-chain chlorinated paraffin technology resulting in a more environmentally responsible lubricant which retains the high film strength lubricity that, in some metal-forming operations, only a chlorinated lubricant can provide. It is a heavy-duty and water-soluble mineral oil-based lubricant that is engineered for use in drawing and stamping operations that utilize metals such as carbon steel, silicon steel, aluminum and brass.  If left unrinsed on processed components, residual films of ICC 920-SN will provide several months of corrosion protection during periods of indoor storage and are readily removed in aqueous cleaning equipment.
  • International Compound 1577 is a moderately viscous, extremely heavy-duty, metal-forming lubricant engineered for severe and extreme drawing, stamping and blanking operations utilizing carbon steel, stainless steel and alloy steels, specifically. It is formulated with the most advanced extreme pressure (EP) additives, emulsifiers and additional polar ingredients in order to provide an elevated degree of high film strength lubricity. Usually implemented as received, ICC 1577 may be diluted with either a low-viscosity mineral oil or water for less severe metal-forming operations.
