Coating and Strippability Lubrication Products

The unique properties of DuPont™ DryFilm lubrication products makes them ideal in coatings that enhance lubricity and antistick properties on conductor or insulated wire and cable. These DryFilm dispersions are used to impart a thin, nonstick film on metal wires or on insulated wire for cable products and twisted wire in jackets. DuPont™ DryFilm lubrication products reduce insulation stripping force and provide nonstick abrasion resistance to twisted wire and lubricity for welding wire, wire forming, and knitting.

Advantages

DuPont™ DryFilm lubrication products exhibit outstanding lubricity and extremely low coefficient of friction. The patented polymer is thermally stable and can be used at temperatures up to 300°C (581°F). The polymer is clean and nonmigrating, chemically inert, and not gummy or oily.

Wire Drawing Lubrication Products

DuPont™ DryFilm dispersions are extremely stable dry lubrication products that form a film on the wire surface for drawing. The product can also be used as a pre-coat to enhance the total performance of your drawing lubrication products. One to two die-pass systems are recommended.

Advantages

DuPont™ DryFilm dispersions will exhibit a clean, inert, low friction surface that is beneficial for drawing a wide variety of specialty wire products. Post-finishing or cleaning is not necessary in most cases. Die wear is minimized, and faster speeds can be obtained.
