WEDOLiT FN 1170-260

High-performance forming oil

WEDOLiT FN 1170-260 is a medium viscous, chlorine containing forming oil for tube drawing and other cold forming operations of steel. The product also offers an excellent performance for precision cutting operations. The undiluted product is usually applied by spraying, brushes or by means of rollers.

  • Stable load carrying capacity and a homogenous sliding behaviour
  • Reduces friction and wear and thus contributes to a high tool life
  • Outstanding wetting ability and film formation without adhesion
  • Stable cold start behaviour, prevents stick-slip and chatter
  • Leads to clean surfaces and contributes to achieve dimensional accuracy
  • Easily removable with organic solvents or alkaline industrial cleaners


WEDOLiT FN 1190-2300

High-performance forming oil

WEDOLiT FN 1190-2300 is a highly viscous, chlorine containing forming oil for tube drawing and other cold forming operations of stainless steel. The undiluted product is usually applied by brushes or by means of rollers.

  • Stable load carrying capacity and a homogenous sliding behaviour
  • Reduces friction and wear and thus contributes to a high tool life
  • Outstanding wetting ability and film formation without adhesion
  • Stable cold start behaviour, prevents stick-slip and chatter
  • Leads to clean surfaces and contributes to achieving dimensional accuracy
  • Easily removable with organic solvents or alkaline industrial cleaners
  • Soluble in chlorinated hydrocarbons


WEDOLiT FN 8850-90 is a medium viscous, water-insoluble lubricant for tube drawing and other cold forming operations of steel. Due to the fact that the product also offers corrosion protection, no additional treatment is necessary (for short term storage). The undiluted product is usually applied by spraying, brushes or by means of rollers.

  • Stable load carrying capacity and a homogenous sliding behaviour
  • Reduces friction and wear and thus contributes to a high tool life
  • Outstanding wetting ability and film formation without adhesion
  • Stable cold start behaviour, prevents stick-slip and chatter
  • Leads to clean surfaces and contributes to achieving dimensional accuracy
  • Easily removable with organic solvents or alkaline industrial cleaners


WEDOLiT FW 1960

Soap for tube drawing operations

WEDOLiT FW 1960 is a water-soluble alkaline soap for heavy drawing operations of steel tubes. The product is usually used as an immersion bath (bath temperature 75 – 90°C).

  • The product is designed to react with the zinc phosphate layer (which acts as lubricant) to form a zinc soap. The zinc phosphate layer should be at least 4 μm (at heavy forming operations, e.g. cold extrusion, up to 10 μm). Due to specific additives, a maximum conversion of zinc phosphate and the drawing media occurs, which results in an optimal performance regarding degree and rate of deformation
  • Can be used in very low concentrations of 5 - 10% as an aqueous solution (tube drawing). The best results are obtained with water free media
  • Offers (in combination with a zinc phosphate layer) very high cross-sectional reduction and high drawing velocities – up to 100 m/min (steel tubes with standard cross-sectional reduction)


WEDOLiT FW 7661

Water-miscible, fully synthetic coolant

WEDOLiT FW 7661 is suitable for the manufacturing of welded steel tubes. It fulfils the requirements regarding lubrication and cleanliness of the tubes and rollers as well as the corrosion protection of the tubes and the system (in a concentration of 3 - 5%).

  • Due to its thermal stability, the product can be used in the whole production line (forming, welding, calibration, sawing)
  • No emulsification of mineral oils and engine lubricants. Therefore, the application of an anticorrosion oil is possible (e.g. on the Turk’s head of the tube welding engine in the manufacturing of profiled tubes)
  • Can be centrifuged without loss of active substances
  • Removable with organic solvents or alkaline industrial cleaners
  • A bright workpiece surface is obtained after annealing


  • Recommended mixing ratio
  • Tube welding:  3 -5%
