At the Euroguss 2010, in hall 7A, stand 204, Chem-Trend will present its next generation Safety-Lube® branded die lubricants, as well as the latest plunger lubricant systems and plunger lubricants of the Power-Lube® line. Chem-Trend’s products for the die casting industry help customers to increase process efficiency and to bring down production costs. The newly developed products help to further reduce scrap rates in casting facilities and to measurably improve the quality of the casted products.


New die lubricants reduce cycle times

Safety-Lube® branded die lubricants have long been known as excellent products for the die casting industry. The latest generation of Safety-Lube® die lubricants allows the application of the die lubricant coating at higher temperatures. Since the mould surface does not have to cool down to the same extent as with traditional die lubricants, the use of the new Safety-Lube products reduces cycle times considerably. Moreover, Safety-Lube® die lubricants can be used at high temperatures without negative impact on the lubricant coating in middle and low temperature ranges. Their broader wetting capability ensures safe casting operations even for non homogeniously tempered casting moulds, preventing the adhesion of metal to mould.


Safety-Lube® products are for example used in the production of complex structural components. Since they leave behind only marginal residue in the casting structure, the new Safety-Lube® products are particularly well suited for the manufacture of castings which in the later process are being coated or joined by welding or gluing.



Next generation plunger lubricants

Chem-Trend’s Power-Lube® branded plunger lubricants help to extend shot component life and to reduce down times. The newly developed Power-Lube® 760 is a plunger lubricant with variable viscosity which helps to improve the quality of the casted products by ensuring an even mould filling. A further benefit is the „Microdosage plunger lubrication“ by which a reduction of lubricant quantities of up to 50 percent can be achieved, lowering the lubrication costs significantly. Moreover, the application system helps to avoid contamination in the area of the shot component, making for a cleaner and safer working environment. In addition, Power-Lube® 760 minimizes flame- and smoke emissions at the casting machine.


Chem-Trend’s products are developed in close cooperation with customers and research institutions. Chem-Trend’s competence in the development and manufacturing of high quality products for the die casting industry, coupled with on site consulting by their highly experienced sales technicians, helps to develop customized solutions in order to increase process efficiency and reduce production costs. At the Euroguss 2010 Chem-Trend’s experts will be available to answer individual questions on Chem-Trend’s products.
