SYNTHETIC LUBRICANTS: Metal Forming lubricants For Aluminum , Copper & Brass

Choosing the proper metal forming lubricant and metal stamping for non ferrous metals such as Aluminum, copper brass has become a difficult, complicated decision. Factors that influence choosing the right lubricant are: type of alloy, severity of the metal forming operation, metal stamping, application method and subsequent operations. General Chemical Corp. is an expert at solving metal forming or metal stamping problems. For a Aluminum lubricant or copper brass lubricant recommendation contact General Chemical; a proven world class leader in Aluminum lubricants, Motor oil, Synthetic Lubricants and copper brass lubricants.

General Chemical offers a complete line of Aluminum lubricants and copper brass lubricants.
