Forming Agent

WEDOLiT FN 8471 is a pigmented, pasty yet flowable, water-insoluble special lubricant for cold forging operations of ferritic and SiCromAl steels. FN 8471 can also be used for dry expansion, preferably as external lubricant, without additional cooling. The lubricant must be applied by hand over the incoming mandrel bar.

  • Does not contain any chlorine compounds and is based on a well-adhering, temperature-stable mineral oil
  • Special basic pigments are used for the consistency adjustment
  • The special granulation size of the pigments allows an almost wear-free surface despite the high load
  • The extremely high pressure stability combined with exceptionally good adhesion of the lubricant, even on smooth surfaces, allows processes with large cross-sectional reductions
  • When processing Sicromal steels, the lumps must be pre-heated to approx. 200-280°C when entering the pilger machine
  • Strong adhesion and the high temperature stability are of particular importance
  • Pigments which remain after the annealing on the surface need to be removed before further processing by pickling in HCl or HNO3


Water-miscible, semi synthetic coolant


WEDOLiT FW 7840 is suitable for light to medium cutting operations of steel, stainless steel and cast iron. Additionally, the product is suitable for the manufacturing of welded steel and galvanized steel tubes.

  • Offers high cooling- and flushing properties with a very good wetting behaviour
  • Contributes to a high tool life
  • Very good application stability
  • Almost free of foam
  • Offers a good skin compatibility
  • Due to its thermal stability the product can be used in the whole production line of welded tubes (forming, welding, calibration, sawing)
