Metalloid's metalforming lubricants are used to form every metal part in an automobile. Whether you bend mufflers, deep draw heat shields, or stamp out small parts on progressive dies, we have the expertise and quality lubricant choice in automotive manufacturing.

Automotive Climate Control

The Metalloid line of lubricants for the automotive aluminum heat exchanger industry:

Metalloid lubricants are designed to reduce friction between tooling and part surfaces, which ultimately reduces the heat generated in the forming process. They also have the function of transmitting  forces, transporting metal fines away from the part and tooling, and cooling desired surfaces. The property of reducing friction is known as “lubricity”.

The FinMill line (for fins, welded and folded tubes, headers, side supports and a variety of components): 

  • These products come in a variety of flash points, lubricity characteristics , evaporation rates and volatility levels to fit any operation.
  • These products have been chemically engineered to make a variety of components with light duty forming requirements  to  heavy duty clad parts.
  • They are compatible with Controlled Atmosphere Brazing (CAB) and Nickle Braze process.
  • Water based, no VOC products are available in a concentrate form or at a precise concentration to fit your process requirements.
  • In many cases, an aqueous wash or a thermal degreasing step can be eliminated.
  • Many can be fluxed over without a degreasing.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC`s) can be either reduced or eliminated depending upon the product selection.

Metalloid uses the industries finest chemists and support teams along with the latest testing and screening technologies to determine the best product to fit your needs: 

  • Perkin Elmer Thermal Gravametric Analyzer to determine volatility.
  • Perkin Elmer ASTM test method E-1868-10 for VOC determination, in accordance with AQMD Rule 1144.
  • Falex testing with ASTM Standard D 2670-95 to determine wear characteristics.
  • Propriety Metalloid Corporation tests to determine evaporation rates.

For proper product selection, a convenient survey form is attached. Please consult with your local Metalloid Representative.
