Vanishing Oils & Evaporative Lubricants

Vanishing Oils & Evaporative Lubricants

International Chemical Company manufactures an effective and economical line of versatile vanishing oils and evaporative lubricants engineered for use as industrial metalworking fluids in most light- to medium-duty drawing, stamping, blanking and roll-forming operations. If a traditional, evaporative solvent-based metal-forming lubricant is required, the 848 Series of Lubricants will exceed your expectations. Synthetic, water-based technology is still relatively new, and the 2500 Series of Lubricants represents a significant chemical departure in terms of small-part, high-speed metalworking operations in which an evaporative lubricant is either required or desired.

Featured Vanishing Oils and Evaporative Lubricants:

Solvents: The International 848 Series of Lubricants is formulated with premium, low-viscosity solvents facilitating even lubrication and wetting across work pieces. They are most commonly used as light- to medium-duty drawing lubricants and high-speed stamping oils. In most cases, the residual solvent carrier evaporates quickly, leaving behind a thin, imperceptible film, providing excellent in-process rust protection. These highly versatile metal-forming lubricants offer a myriad of benefits including effective anti-wear properties and superior high film strength lubricity.

  • International Compound 848 evaporates quickly and completely, leaving no oily residue—preventing interference with subsequent operations like applications of adhesives, paints, joint compounds, phosphates and blackening agents. It is compatible with all metals and engineered for light-duty metalworking operations.
  • International Compounds 848-A is formulated with higher levels of several lubricity and non-volatile anti-wear additives to provide increased lubrication for both the tooling and the work piece. ICC 848-A is an ideal medium-duty blanking and stamping lubricant for operations utilizing painted aluminum stock. It also has an elevated flash point, promoting a much safer work environment.
  • International Compound 848-F2 is a non-chlorinated, highly refined, low-viscosity drawing, stamping and roll-forming lubricant engineered to provide exceptional performance on light gauge carbon steel, copper alloys and aluminum.  It is engineered with an advanced additive packaged that promotes excellent die and tool life while preventing galling and scoring on formed metal components.  ICC 848-F2 is odorless, non-staining and an excellent lubricant for use on pre-painted metals.  Residual films provide efficient in-process corrosion protection and are readily removed in aqueous cleaning equipment.
  • International Compound 848-L is a metalworking lubricant engineered for use in medium-duty metal-forming operations and in specific high speed stamping operations. It is recommended for use with most metals: aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized steel, copper, brass, alloys of nickel and tin-plated steel. The robust additive package promotes superior high film strength lubricity and provides in-process rust protection for both the tooling and work piece.

Synthetics: The International 2500 Series of Lubricants is comprised of water-based, water-soluble, fully-synthetic metalworking lubricants engineered for operations such as drawing, stamping, blanking, piercing, perforating and roll forming. They function similarly to vanishing oils and evaporative solvents in that the wetting and lubricating properties are comparable. In addition, the residual films are thin and virtually imperceptible, thereby preventing interference with subsequent operations. All iterations are environmentally responsible and formulated to provide high film strength lubricity that reduces friction, resulting in efficient anti-wear protection for tooling.

  • International Compound 2502 is a low-viscosity metal-forming lubricant that is recommended for use in operations utilizing carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Its lower viscosity makes it an ideal candidate for light- to medium-duty applications. The thin, residual film provides effective in-process and short-term rust protection to manufactured components and tooling.
  • International Compound 2506 is a low- to moderate-viscosity, metal-forming lubricant that is inhibited specifically to be compatible with sensitive metals such as aluminum, brass, copper and galvanized steel. It is both non-staining and non-corrosive to sensitive alloys. Its high film strength lubricity significantly reduces friction and provides exceptionally fine finishes.
