VANISHING LUBRICANTS, VANISHING OILS
Sometimes it is advantageous to use a lubricant that disappears after it has done its job. These materials leave a light coating of lubricant on the part during processing and then evaporate shortly thereafter. In many cases these lubricants can completely eliminate cleaning operations. Our vanishing oils will not turn tacky or gummy, have no odor and are designed to always stay fluid. Recommended for use on virtually all metals.
