Lubricants for Metal Working


Lubrication is an essential part of metalworking. Most lubricants are used to reduce friction to help extend tool life. Cooling lubricant for metalworking needs to be effective. In addition, they need to be free of any harmful substance that may damage the environment or be harmful to your health. Our lubricants at Tridan, are used in stamping, expanding, and bending. Also, our hydraulic oils are used for hydraulically driven machines we make.

Lubrication – Hydraulic Oil

Hydraulic oil is not only a lubricant, but it helps transfer power through a hydraulic system. An effective hydraulic oil should contain certain aspects, such as oxidation, thermal, and hydraulic stability as well as stability and anti-wear performance. Also, the proper viscosity grade of oil lets the equipment start at a low temperature and allows proper oil flow rates to help keep up high efficiencies under high heat.

Our lubes here at Tridan International are for drawing fin stock during die-stamping and adding heat resistance during bending and expanding of copper, stainless, or aluminum tubing.  All of our lubes are available in 55-gallon drums and 5-gallon containers. Also, when it comes to metalworking, keeping temperatures down is a key factor for long-lasting equipment and efficiency.
