Process Control/Efficiency:

Your lubricant is more than just a stamping fluid:

·         It is a contaminant that can greatly impact the quality and appearance of your welding.

·         It can have a dramatic impact on the bath life of your pre-treatment chemistry, the amount of heat necessary for cleaning processes and the amount of water consumed in cleaning processes.

·         Your lubricant can impact the speed at which you can pre-treat and finish parts.

·         A lubricant can have a major impact on the efficiency and compliance of your waste treatment processes or costs associated with hauling waste from your facility.

·         Lubricant selection is one of the most important facets in minimizing consumption of energy, water and labour.

 

Safety:

Have you ever walked into a building and are immediately aware of a chemical odour?

·         Your lubricant not only contacts your metal substrates and dies – it contacts your operators and management. Your employees and team members are exposed to chemical solutions, residues and mists throughout the work day.

·         Shop floors, tools and work spaces are all exposed to the effects of your choices in chemicals.

·         Slips and falls can occur when lubricants are over applied or misused. Odours and persistent clouds of mist or smoke can impact respiratory health and worker safety.

 

Sustainability:

Sustainability of your lubricant materials is increasingly important:

·         This not only affects your bottom-line cost per gallon, but also the impact you make on your environment and community.

·         By using raw materials that are more easily replenished and/or bio-based and are more biodegradable and less persistent and toxic – your employees, community and environment are safer.

·         Sustainable raw materials are often less susceptible to foreign economic, political and environmental issues.

·         Using products based on renewable resources – your “Carbon footprint” and that of your community is smaller.
