Blue Line
  • Environmentally Safe: these non-chlorinated drawing and stamping oils contain no sulfurized additives of any kind, eliminating both the environmental and financial costs associated with special handling
  • Excellent Lubrication: highly polar full-synthetic lubricants produce excellent finish characteristics
  • Clean and Low Foaming: assure cleanliness in work area, draw die and tooling; solutions remain clean and low foaming for long periods; solutions clean easily with water or mildly alkaline detergents
  • Highly Stable: these water-soluble, heavy-duty industrial lubricants mix readily into hard and soft water, forming stable, true solutions
  • Inhibit Corrosion: non-staining and non-corrosive to aluminum, brass and galvanized steel, while protecting steel from rust
  • High Film Strength Lubricity: The significantly reduced friction and heat due to their high film strength lubricity provide efficient and highly effective anti-wear protection
  • Weldable: 1599 lubricants feature smokeless weld characteristics and the elimination of porous welds


The 1599 Series of Synthetic Lubricants

The 1599 Series of Synthetic Lubricants

International Chemical Company is extremely proud to manufacture a complete line of synthetic, water-soluble, heavy-duty metalworking lubricants for use in industrial applications. Simply put, synthetic metalworking fluids are a powerful combination of surfactants, boundary lubricants and proprietary additives. These additives provide specific advantages over mineral oil-based metal-forming lubricants because they are non-toxic, contain no petroleum byproducts and are environmentally responsible.

International Chemical Company’s fully synthetic, non-chlorinated drawing and stamping lubricants and oils exhibit excellent viscosity-to-temperature behavior and perform well within a very wide temperature range, making them perfect for use as high-speed industrial stamping lubricants. These soluble industrial synthetic oils are particularly effective in hard water and contain low-foaming properties for post-washing of manufactured components. The 1599 Series of Synthetic Lubricants are based on a formulation engineered specifically for use in high-pressure steel forming operations such as drawing, stamping, forming, blanking, piercing, perforating, roll forming and continuous welded tube production. They provide the necessary friction-reducing high film strength lubricity required of roll-forming lubricants, preventing wear and galling (cold welding), functioning as flood coolants to the tooling and work pieces to dissipate and prevent heat build-up, and to minimize soil accumulation on the tooling.

Featured Synthetic Lubricants:

International Compound 1599 is the most versatile and heavy-duty of the series of synthetic drawing and stamping oils and lubricants. It is a water-based and fully synthetic metal-forming lubricant recommended for use in operations requiring an extremely heavy-duty formulation that is equal in performance to heavily-chlorinated oils (for this application, ICC 1599 should be used as received). In some cases, diluted solutions of ICC 1599 have performed better due to the cooling characteristics of water and the combination of built-in extreme pressure additives. It is ideally suited as an industrial metal-forming lubricant for any and all operations utilizing carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, brass and aluminum. The high film strength lubricity reduces friction and provides anti-wear protection for dies and tooling.

International Compound 1599-B is a phosphate-free, moderately-viscous and heavy-duty metal-forming lubricant containing a low percentage of chlorinated fatty acids formulated for high film strength lubricity. Metal-forming lubricants such as this unique, synthetic blend are recommended for industrial applications utilizing carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum alloys. It may be applied via all conventional methods and makes for an excellent high-speed stamping lubricant.

International Compound 1599-D is a modified version of the original ICC 1599 synthetic base formula. It is specifically engineered for use in moderate- to heavy-duty stamping and deep-draw metal-forming operations which utilize stainless steel alloys. Its lower viscosity allows for pinpoint application via spray, mist and automated equipment. The effective combination of extreme pressure additives provides high film strength lubricity, helping to minimize burrs and scoring.  ICC 1599-D is non-staining and non-corrosive, and if left unrinsed on formed surfaces, the residual film may be welded through without smoking or interference with the integrity of the weld.

International Compound 1599-P is a heavy-duty, high-performance, synthetic metalworking lubricant, originally formulated for use in punching, piercing and perforating operations, which performs equally well as a milling and machining coolant in specific applications. It is compatible with carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steels, aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper and brass. ICC 1599-P is designed to run cool, thus maximizing tool life. It contains an effective combination of extreme pressure (EP) additives for the toughest punching, piercing, perforating and blanking performance available.

International Compound 1599-SS is a modified version of the original ICC 1599 base formula; it is specifically engineered for use with stainless steel. Retaining its water-based, heavy-duty synthetic nature, while incorporating specific ethoxylated components to improve clean-ability, ICC 1599-SS is a particularly clean synthetic metal-forming lubricant that is ideally suited for severe operations like deep drawing and stamping. It is non-staining and non-corrosive; and when left on parts, the residual lubricant can be welded through without excessive smoking or interference with the integrity of the weld.
