FORGECOAT-F2055: A HOT FORGING LUBRICANT

F2055

FORGECOAT is a proven indigenous Substitute for the "Deltaforge F31 and F144".

The F-2055 forms a smooth lubricating protective film on application, resulting in better parts, tool protection and being water based is smokeless, ensures a clean work environment. Forgecoat has shown excellent performance when used with applicators such as Spraying systems, brushing or swabbing techniques. There is no graphite buildup within the die cavities on repeated applications.

It has been tested for shelf life, suspension properties and pot-life when in use and when left standing. F-2055 shows excellent film forming properties when dried and exhibits great adhesive qualities when the dried film adheres to substrates such as glass and metals.

TYPICAL PROPERTIES

FORGECOAT F-2055 is a concentrated dispersion of pure ultra fine synthetic graphite particles in water.


Consistency : Thixotropic. It forms a weak gel on standing. Mild stirring/agitation breaks the gel structure and properties of a liquid become evident.
Density : 1.10 Kgs/Litre. Hydrometer for heavy liquids or by gravimetry.
Ph : 8.50 to 10.5. Beckman or equivalent digital ph - meter.
Solid Contents : 20 gm% to 22 gm% w/w, by gravimetry. Being thixotropic it gels on standing. The degree of gelling is no indication of solid content
Shelf - life : 1 Year.

DILUTION OF FORGECOAT

Forgecoat is a concentrate and should normally be diluted before use. Tap water may be used for dilution. If tap water is high in TDS, distilled, demineralised or soft water may be used. Dilution should be carried out by adding water to the concentrate not the reverse. Water should be added slowly with constant stirring until a fluid consistency is obtained.

DILUTION RATIOS

The recommended dilution ratio depends on the difficulty of the job and the cooling required.

A ratio of one part Forgecoat-F2055 to 10 parts water v/v is proposed for startup.

Ratios of 1:15 and greater are common during production.

A more concentrated mixture, 1:3 (Forgecoat:water), to lubricate tooling hotter than 300°C is   recommended.

DILUTION & SPRAY EQUIPMENT

Equipment for quick dilution to required ratios and thorough mixing is available against specific orders from our engineering division. General purpose manual spray systems and Automatic spray systems designed for the particular application to ensure correct use of the lubricant are also available.You may please forward your enquiries to the address given on contact us page for quick replies and services.

STABILITY WITH OTHER CHEMICALS

FORGECOAT F-2055 is stable with anionic or non-ionic chemicals such as wetting agents or emulsifiers, water miscible solvents such as alcohols, glycols and other polar solvents. It is not compatible with non-polar or water immiscible solvents. Mineral acids will completely & irreversibly precipitate the graphite from suspension and cause the graphite particles to settle down as sediment leaving a clear aqueous supernatant.

OTHER INFORMATION

Samples of FORGECOAT are available for your trials and development work in 40Kgs packing.

STORAGE AND HANDLING

Vessels made of Stainless steel, or steel coated with rust resistant material, or FRP should be used for this product. Tanks, piping and handling equipment should be cleaned with plain soap and water, to remove any deposits due to evaporation. Freezing temperatures during storage must be avoided.

TOXICITY AND HANDLING

FORGECOAT causes only minor transient skin and eye irritation. Use of protective clear goggles and approved respirators for protection against dust is recommended. Work place air-borne concentration of dried FORGECOAT dust should not exceed 6mg/m3, total mass.

SHIPPING

FORGECOAT is supplied in 40 Kgs Carboy and 200Kgs HDPE Barrel packing.

PRECAUTIONS

FORGECOAT should be stored in a cool dry place and should not be allowed to freeze. Containers should be tightly resealed after use to prevent loss of ammonia vapours. Forgecoat should not be mixed /diluted with any diluents having an acidic ph.
