DIE CASTING LUBRICANTS

DIE CASTING

 

CONVENTIONAL
DIE-CASTING

High pressure die casting utilizes many different press sizes, alloys, temperatures, and casting weights. The Diluco family has offerings for all of these scenarios in the die casting process.  Diluco lubricants are specifically formulated to withstand thermal degradation, which allows for higher dilution ratios and less build-up on the die surface.

SQUEEZE
CASTING

Squeeze casting is a hybrid metal forming process that guarantees contact between metal and the die walls. The pressure applied during the casting process produces a low porosity, denser casting that requires special chemistry considerations to allow release during the ejection process.  The Diluco 300 series utilizes raw materials that include minerals, natural and synthetic waxes, wetting agents and dispersing agents combined in an extendable water system.

DILUCO 315

Specifically formulated lubricant used in the squeeze casting process with significantly enhanced releasing characteristics.

Base:  Squeeze

Casting Size: Small - Large

Alloy Type: Aluminum

 

ELECTROSTATIC

OR MICRO-SPRAY

The Diluco family offers waterless lubricants for casting facilities that utilize electrostatic or micro-spray technology. Waterless lubricants are prevalent in complex castings or castings with high surface finish requirements. Offering both wet and dry chemistries gives the end-user a full range of options to maximize their lubrication needs.

DILUCO 811 ES

Waterless, synthetic release agent for casting complex functional and cosmetic castings.

Base:  Electrostatic, Micro-Spray

Casting Size: Small - Large

Alloy Type: Aluminum

DRYCOLUBE

Dry film coating that provides a thermal protective layer that has superior releasing properties.

Base:  Electrostatic

Casting Size: Small - Large

Alloy Type: Aluminum

START-UP

LUBRICANT

Diluco SU-1505 Placeholder.JPG

The Diluco family offers lubricants specifically formulated to help with the ease of starting cold dies as they do not offer the same heat transfer characteristics and require chemistries with different release properties. Offering both non-graphitic and graphitic products, this ensures the needs of die casters are covered.

DILUCO SU-1505

High performance, petroleum based lubricant developed for use on die surfaces during the start-up 
phase of operation.

Base:  Start-up Lubricant

Casting Size: Small - Large

Alloy Type: Aluminum

DILUCO SU-2650G

High performance, polymer-based release agent to be used during the initial startup phase.

Base:  Start-up Lubricant

Casting Size: Small - Large

Alloy Type: Aluminum
