Houghton Tube Lubricant CR51H - High viscosity deep drawing oil - 25777
Tube Lubricant CR51H is one of a range of high lubricity oils for the cold reduction of steel tubes. They are viscous oils based upon extreme pressure additives and high lubricity agents.
Tube Lubricant CR51H can be used for difficult applications such as stainless steel tube expansions and reductions.
The internal lubrication of the mandrel as well as the external die lubrication can be effectively achieved using products from the Tube Lubricant CR range. The full range of the hardest steels, including stainless, nimonics and the more exotic alloys used in the aerospace and nuclear industries, will benefit from the use of these lubricants.
Tube Lubricant CR51H can be applied by pump, brush, swab or roller and is readily removed by normal solvent degreasing techniques. Hot alkali cleaners such as Houghto-Clean Plus 280 can also be used, particularly where pressure washing equipment is available.
To prevent risk of staining it recommended that lubricant is removed prior to annealing.
