EKamold® BORON NITRIDE SPRAYS AND SUSPENSIONS AS RELEASE AGENTS AND LUBRICANTS FOR METAL FORMING
Mold wear, difficult separation of the molded part from the mold, and flawed molded part surfaces are typical challenges encountered in metal forming. This renders the use of lubricants virtually unavoidable.
New processes, higher specifications on precision parts and surface quality combined with much higher forming temperatures often cause conventional release agents and lubricants to be pushed to their limits.
