The petroleum-based lubricants are extracted from crude oil. Once extracted it needs to be refined, dewaxed, desalted, and distilled for use. In addition, they include natural hydrocarbons that are not found in synthetic. Synthetic lubricants instead of petroleum lube, are built in a lab.
Mineral or Petroleum Based Lubricants must be removed from the coil either by vapor degreasing or through the use of an aqueous cleaner. These types of lubricants provide superior fin collar drawing capabilities plus the best protection for long tool life. When using lubricants from Tridan, you are extending the life of your machines to run better with less downtime.
