Mid Forge 4000 Stamping Oil Data Sheet

A Graphite free synthetic water based forging lubricant.

Mid Forge 4000 is a high performance synthetic graphite free die lubricant designed for the hot forging of heavy duty ferrous and non ferrous components. The product gives excellent lubrication and release at high dilution rates when hot forging on presses and hammers. The product is formulated to give superior wetting performance at high temperatures giving good metal flow.

Mid Forge 4000 combines specially selected additives to give superior part release and ejection after the part has been formed. When in use, evidence of residues (white powder) are dramatically reduced and any can be easily removed by water to improve die and bolster conditions and promote a better working environment for operators.

Mid Forge 4000 can be mixed readily with water to form a solution and therefore the need for consistent agitation is not required, unlike dispersion type products. The product formulation is designed to be sprayed but can also be applied by swab.
