DIE CAST MACHINE LUBRICATION

Through years of working closely with the High Pressure Die Casters in the Philippines, as well the OEM’s such as Toshiba and Toyo, our company has developed a portfolio of lubricating products that have been tested and proven to be appropriate for your Die Casting Machines.

MINERAL BASED

Our LUBERITE AW series is an HLP mineral-based lubricant containing low-zinc Anti-Wear (AW) additives, meeting quality levels of Denison, Vickers and Cincinnati Machines.  It is highly recommended for use in high-pressure hydraulic systems, and may also be used for lightly loaded gearboxes and bearings not requiring Extreme Pressure (EP) additives.

Our LUBERITE SW range was formulated to meet the excessive demands for the lubrication of the slideways, toggles, and tie-bars of modern Die Cast Machines.  Containing Friction Modifiers, this lubricant minimizes the occurrences of stick-slip at low speeds and high pressures, and provides protection against scuffing and seizures. LUBERITE SW also contains Tackifiers, Demulsfiers, and Anti-Rust additives, ensuring that its performance remains optimum despite the possible exposure from water-miscible die release agents.

Heat Transfer Oils Power Transtherm 525 Heat absorbing circulating oils for use in die-cooling systems, whose temperatures do not exceed 310oC.
Ejector Pin Grease Taebecon Moly Plus 2 Grease with solid MoS2, providing protection against sliding friction, shock loads and high temperatures.
Anti-Solder Paste Petrofer Die-Lubric AS Grease applied to ‘Hot Spots’ on the die to prevent or remove soldering.
Start-up Paste Petrofer Die-Lubric ALP Silver paste applied to dies to protect against soldering especially at start-up, or during cold-shots.
Ladle Coating Petrofer Templubric LS Oil based ladle coating designed to prolong coating life vs conventional water-based ladle coatings.

FIRE RESISTANT HYDRAULIC FLUIDS

Petrofer’s Ultra-Safe 620 provides virtual total safety from accidental fires due to its outstanding fire-resistance in all hydraulic equipment operating in an environment of molten metal.  It also provides a long fluid life due to its resistance to oxidation compared to mineral oils.  Moreover, Ultra-Safe 620 possesses excellent lubrication and anti-wear properties.

Quaker Quintolubric 888-46 is designed to replace anti-wear type mineral oils in applications where Fire Hazards are present.  It is also frequently used as an alternative to Water-Glycol HFC fluids, when wear resistance & lubrication is desired, and when superior anti-rust capability is required.  The product does not contain any mineral oil, phosphate esters nor water.  Field experience has proven that Quintolubric 888-46, when properly maintained, can last up to five (5) years with optimum performance.

PLUNGER OILS

Due to the elevated pressures generated at the shot-end of High Pressure Die Casting Machines (up to 10,000 psi), severe boundary lubricating conditions exists between the plunger tip and plunger sleeves at all times.  To prolong plunger tip and sleeve life, and therefore to maximize productivity, Resource One developed a range of Plunger Lubricants that can maximize your Die Casting operations.

Our LUBERITE PL 1000 HY Plunger Oil is a high-viscosity, mineral based oil containing Extreme Pressure (EP) additives.

Petrofer Piston Lubricant AP 270 contains micro-fine graphite particles that protect the sleeve and tip despite the loss of oil film lubrication at the injection stage of the Die Casting Process.  Optimum wear protection is achieved using Piston Lubricant AP 270.

Petrofer Piston Powder FA is a solid and beaded lubricant made of wax, designed to melt, spread and lubricate the tip and sleeve upon contact with the sleeve.  This technology has provided the following benefits to its users,

  • Excellent lubrication cost per shot vs oil based systems < 1.0 gram per shot on 350 ton machines
  • Clean, oil-free machine, reducing environmental impact
  • Lesser gas formation and porosity due to lower lubricating quantity required
  • Reduced possibility of product staining
  • Higher rate of recycling or re-melting Aluminum dross

AVAILABLE IN 12.5 KG PAILS

Quaker’s AQ 016M is a new technology water-based plunger lubrication that resists the generation of fire upon contact with molten aluminum.  Moreover, AQ 016M provides superior tip and sleeve life compared to conventional water-based technologies.  It may applied using spray systems, or the traditional drip-feed applicators.

AVAILABLE IN 18 LITER PAILS
