OUR EXPERTISE

Whether aluminium, magnesium, zinc or other metals are being die cast PETROFER's experience ensures that your parts, whatever the alloy, meet the quality requirements of your customers specification, with a pore free structure, dimensional stability and high surface quality. We also have solutions for casting brass and copper alloys that can improve your competitive capabilities.  In any casting manufacture application you want the molten metal not to stick or solder into the die, this is true for all metals, not only aluminium, magnesium and zinc. We provide the release agent as a barrier in these high pressure and other specialised applications. Due to our diversity, we are also able to assist you with many ancillary products used in the foundry and process, such as: Heat Treatment, Heat Transfer fluids, surface treatments prior to powder coating or painting, the challenge of clean parts and CNC machining.

OUR PRODUCT RANGE IN DETAIL

DIE-CASTING RELEASE AGENTS

The DIE-LUBRIC range includes water dilutable and water free release agents for use with different alloys like aluminium, magnesium, zinc, brass, copper and specialised die casting processes. Our wax containing and wax free products, as well as our concentrates especially designed to challenge bacterially and fungally infected systems, are also used in central supply systems. Special products for innovative spray methods and surface finishes complete the portfolio. From our understanding of Aluminium Die Casting and other alloy casting we are specialised for a wide range of molten metals. We are also innovators and have new technology formulations to meet the developing world of low weight, complex structural castings known as "light weighting technology" for the new E-mobility markets. PETROFER release agents also ensure lubrication of ejectors, sliding cores and spray equipment while helping to make the working environment cleaner and safer.

PISTON LUBRICANT

Our PISTON- LUBRICANT and PISTON-POWDER product ranges for die casting include both graphite containing and graphite free plunger lubricants, all designed to achieve outstanding lubrication results of the shot sleeve, and meet all of the requirements of high quality, economical high pressure die casting processes for injection and casting of different alloys. Ester based lubricants are available to meet new light weighting high pressure die casting technology and its plunger demands of new application techniques, while reducing microporosity.

APPLICATION EXAMPLES

The water dilutable and water free DIE-LUBRIC die-face lubricants are used for aluminium, magnesium and zinc high pressure die casting in single and multi cavity casting processes. Due to the versatility of the chemistry they are suitable for conventional spray, short spray, micro spray or electrostatic spray. This is a growing area for the high pressure casting of new generation light weight, thin walled, automotive structural parts. Here the challenges are: porosity must be eliminated while ensuring excellent structural dimensions, no distortion along an extensive parting line, the use of new generation aluminium alloys that have challenging melting points and solidification temperatures. Even though aluminium die casting is the main cast material, aluminium is not the only metal processed in die casting, and PETROFER has the technology and fluid whatever the specification of the cast parts, material, equipment and fluid application technique.
