Dry lubricants

A dry drawing lubricant can be based on sodium-, and calcium soap or a mix. TRAXIT produces lubricants with different fat contents and additives. The lubricants have different plastified areas and softening points, which is important for different drawing applications. The scope is to reach hydro-dynamic lubrication.

The lubricant creates a strong and stable lubricant layer (film) that helps to keep the surfaces of the wire and die apart from each other.


The efficiency of a lubricant is based on:

- Temperature stability

- Reduction of friction in the die

- Flowing in the die box

- Stable grain size while using

- Absorb some acid from the pickling process

- Absorb some lime from coating process

- Low humidity absorption


All our products meet EC Health and Safety Regulations and are backed up with ISO 9001 and OSHAS 18001.
