Features and benefits

  • Optimum lubricating properties to ensure long tool life and enhanced surface finish of the drawn tube
  • Excellent bright annealing characteristics in heat treatment processes with inert, dry atmospheres
  • Low fume characteristics during high speed drawing
  • High viscosity index maintains lubricating film even at elevated temperatures
  • Lower carbon residues compared with more conventional polymer oils

The Tubol™ Range

Due to the differing production processes in tube mills, often a bespoke lubricant programme is required to meet individual demands. We have a comprehensive range of tube mill lubricants for spinner blocks, bull blocks, draw benches, cascade lines, Pilger mills, extrusion presses and cast and roll applications.

Please contact our representatives to allow us the opportunity to view your process and to recommend a lubricant which will enhance your throughput and productivity.
