OUR METAL FORMING LUBRICANTS RANGE
The range of lubrication for metal forming operations includes neat oils, oil based emulsions, dispersions, synthetic products and pastes. Our products are individually developed to meet any requirements for metal forming processes, thus guaranteeing the user the highest productivity and quality in these operations. The PETROFER product line not only offers stamping oils which evaporate free of residues, but also metal forming lubricants for wire drawing, cold forming, punching, fine blanking, deep drawing as well as sheet metal rolling. Wherever the lubrication requirement is a fluid to offer anti-wear, high lubricity, improved surface finish on many machine designs we have the product industry needs.

PETROFER with its long history of innovation in metalworking lubrication, and understanding of the press work, stamping, extrusion and metal forming industry is constantly developing new production fluid formulations. We manufacture lubricants to meet the advanced manufacturing challenges of new metals, workpiece alloys, tooling designs, shape requirements, surface finish, component cleanliness and mechanical properties, while recognising environmental acceptance. PETROFER is at the forefront of lubricant technology for this industry from simple press-brakes to the most advanced metal forming machinery and will have the right lubricant to meet every demand.
OUR PRODUCT RANGE IN DETAIL
The wire drawing product line DRAWLUB includes emulsions, water dilutable (soluble oils) as well as semi-synthetic and conventional neat lubricants for cost effective, versatile metal wire and cable manufacture on many machine designs. Typical industrial products are: electrical wires, electrical profiles, alloy wires, welding wires, steel rope wire, stainless wire, stainless profiles as well as spring and brush-steel wire. Our wire drawing lubricants and oils have extreme pressure additives and offer superb lubricity most without use of chlorinated additives, leaving an excellent finish to the surface.
PETROFER’s cold forming product line known as ISOFORM 9 includes semi-synthetic and conventional neat fluids as well as Sol-Gel lubricants for flexible manufacturing lines often using cold forging and cold heading machines. Typical areas of cold working are production forming of fasteners, steering systems as well as driveline technology where high strength metals with difficult mechanical properties and reduced plastic deformation are often found. Our cold forming lubricants are suitable for many machine types, sheet metals, strip and rod feeds and difficult workpiece shapes.
SHEET METAL FORMING
The ISOFORM-S range of formulations are for fine blanking and deep drawing, we offer fluids that are mineral oil free as well as high performance neat oils for modern manufacturing lines. Typical examples are: car driveline technology, e-mobility, chassis components, pressure vessels, tubes and flanges. Our cost effective, chlorine based alternatives are in the ISOFORM TD product line.
PETROFER’s ISO-MILL rolling lubricants include customised rolling oils, suitable for a wide range of metals and processes, for example; wire rod and tube production as well as roll forming of cold profiles and seam welded pipes. A tank side additive range known as ISOADD is available to adjust lubricating properties onsite and reduce friction further, where extreme pressure additives are required, for demanding metal forming processes, thicker cross-sections and niche applications.
BLANKING & STAMPING
Our ISOLUBE technology is for blanking, perforating, crimping and stamping offering a wide range of self-evaporating and thermally vaporising fluids, optimised for manufacturing lines producing heat exchangers and radiators, as well as for air conditioning units. Our range of sheet metal forming fluids provides cost effective, low viscosity, metal forming neat lubricants for many application techniques, that require both, easy-to-clean lubrication and lubricants that are suitable for micro-lubrication.
PETROFER’s DIE FORGENT products are water dilutable forging lubricants, and can be used for hot and warm forging operations. They are suitable for both simple and complicated parts made from of steel, aluminum, non‐ferrous metal alloys and other technical metals.
When being applied onto the forging tools, or component, the DIE FORGENT Series dilutions form a uniform lubricating film with very good wetting abilities and excellent adhesive properties. This film avoids contact between the forging tool surface and the workpiece.
In high technology component forming such as, high value car body parts, aircraft structures and architectural items new methods of hot forming are being used. This requires the sheet of alloy to be heated to as much as 380 deg C before being transferred into the press. The tooling can also be very complex and is often heated to high temperatures to enable the sheet to be moved into the mould without stretching, deformation or creasing. This process requires special lubricants that can be applied to the sheet before heating and remain with the component strongly adhered to the surface through the forming. PETROFER has special products developed for this technology available upon request
Accelerated high performance quenching oils ISORAPID and MARQUENCH are used to harden components such as gears, fasteners and bearings while modern water dilutable polymer quenchants FEROQUENCH and AQUATENSID are used for hardening crankshafts, oil industry parts, forgings, shaft, bearings and many other applications.

Long term partnership
REDUCTION OF TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
- high economic efficiency: versatile fluids suitable across many metals, alloys and and metal forming processes
- increased tank life of water dilutable products thanks to use of modern formulations and raw materials
- potential elimination of subsequent component cleaning and separate rinsing step due to the excellent washing and rinsing performance
HIGHER PROCESS EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY
- high quality products with process optimised, tribological anti-wear properties: oil is only used where required, providing energy and material savings
- formulation uses technically advanced raw materials providing exceptional tool life and lubricity while reducing corrosion
- increased workplace and plant safety
IMPROVEMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL BALANCE
- sustainable, environmentally friendly and innovative products that exceed legal requirements
- VOC free products according to the 31st BImSchV
- lower environmental impact through extended service life of the lubricating fluids
