WireWorks 10027 is a unique approach to the dry drawing of wire without the drawbacks associated with calcium or sodium based soaps.
WireWorks 10027 is a composite solid lubricant that has been flaked and sized for easy handling. It is a synergistic blend of natural and synthetic additives designed to maximize die life and surface finish of drawn wires. This lubricant has the ability to draw mixed metals at variable speeds, using multiple dies at high reduction rates.

Directions for Use
WireWorks 10027 is typically used as received in ripper, open or closed die boxes. Heating to 300°F will liquidize the lubricant for dipping or flow-coat applications, or in sealed die box. To remove residues use hot, high alkaline, water-based cleaners in a soak tank or spray washer.
