Metal forming fluids – a range of lubricants and rust preventatives for the roll forming, cutting and pressing of metallic parts

Metalube Logo

METALUBE's range of metal forming products is comprised of three product groups: Cool-Tek™ - water dilutable concentrates for lubrication during forming and cutting processes, Sol-Tek™ - evaporative lubricants and Meta-Shield™ - water and solvent-based rust preventatives.

The range contains products for use on a variety of metals including black steel, mild steel, hot rolled and galvanised steel. The carefully selected lubricity and detergency additives in the Cool-Tek™ range provide effective lubrication, excellent fi nes handling, superior cleanliness (resulting in extended roll/tool life), excellent surface fi nish and corrosion protection for the inside bore. The Meta-Shield™ range of rust preventatives is designed to be used in conjunction with the Cool-Tek™ products and offers impeccable protection for bundled sections for up to 24 months. Sol-Tek™ products are evaporative in nature; this eliminates water from the forming process, reducing the risk of corrosion, and means that parts dry with no need for cleaning or subsequent treatment.

The range contains a new concept package of a water-based lubricant and a water-based rust preventative which eliminates many of the issues experienced with cross-contamination of solvent RP and lubricant.

The Cool-Tek™ Range

Cool-Tek™ 250

Cool-Tek™ 250 is a high performance, low-oil, semi-synthetic lubricant designed for the roll-forming and cutting of light to medium sections. The light, semi-synthetic formulation offers improved system and surface cleanliness. Carefully selected additives provide lubrication resulting in extended roll/tool life and improved surface finish.

Cool-Tek™ 450

Cool-Tek™ 450 is a high-performance, semi-synthetic lubricant designed for the roll-forming of medium to heavier sections or metalworking operations. The optimised mineral oil content and carefully selected additives provide highly effective lubrication during forming and cutting operations whilst still offering superior fines handling and the same high levels of corrosion inhibition.

The Meta-Shield™ Range

Meta-Shield™ S600, S610 and S620

Meta-Shield™ S series is a specially formulated range of solvent-based rust preventatives, designed for the protection of metallic parts offering protection from 6 to 24 months. Meta-Shield S series products impart a light thixotropic grease.

Meta-Shield™ W1000D

Meta-Shield™ W1000D is a ready-formed, water-based rust preventative offering up to 24 months protection. Incorporating the unique Meta-Shield Adhesion Technology™, the product provides the enduser with reliable and hardy corrosion protection whilst allowing easy removal in the presence of a cleaning agent. Used in conjunction with Cool-Tek™ 250, it gives a number of benefits including no over-lubrication/skidding, better health and safety, better cleanliness and increased cost effectiveness.

The Sol-Tek™ Range

Sol-Tek™ AL50, AL120, FE100, FE300 and FE500

Sol-Tek™ evaporative lubricants offer a water-free alternative for your roll-forming, slitting, stamping and panel pressing lines. Available with different levels of lubricity additive, the range is designed to give lubrication for processes such as aluminium fin forming (Sol-Tek™ AL50), through to the forming of steel sections and panels (Sol-Tek™ FE300 and FE500). The absence of water reduces the risk of corrosion and the evaporative nature means there is no need for subsequent cleaning or treatment.
