A line of lubricants from Metal Mates (a brand name of ITW Rocol) is specifically engineered for use on AHSS, advanced high-strength steels and difficult drawing, stamping, piercing and flanging applications. The VS-HSS, OVS-HSS or HDP-HSS lubricants are available and vary depending on the severity of forming application and grade, and the thickness of the AHSS. These lubricants combine anti-wear, extreme pressure and corrosion protection for the high-strength steels including dual phase (DP), transformation induced plasticity (TRIP), Phase (CP) and Martensitic (MART).

For ease and application versatility, the products can be applied by spray, brush, roll coat or drip. These lubricants won’t become sticky and gummy as they move through the critical segments in progressive dies. None of these new lubricants require part cleaning before welding operations. These new lubricants improve the life of dies, part quality and reduce scrap, the company says.
