ALU-JECT LIQUID

DILUTION

ALU-JECT is diluted by adding water to the lubricant

DILUTION RATIO’S

Typical dilution ratio is 1:3/ (ALU-JECT:WATER) and is recommended for initial evaluations. Actual dilutions will vary according to the application technique.

APPLICATION

ALU-JECT should be sprayed to achieve the best results. Spray application provides a uniform film thickness, which allows lower friction values, however the product can be successfully swab applied.

USAGE

PROPERTIES

LIQUID BILLET LUBRICATION SYSTEM

Castool has developed a unique process of application for a liquid soluble lubricant to a preheated extrusion billet or tool. The obstacle to their use is the Leidenfrost affect, which makes it difficult to coat a surface hotter than 1112 0F (600 0C) with a water based product. This application process enables improved coverage and reduces overspray and cost.

ALU-JECT STICK

ALU-JECT STICK : A cream colored, sodium-based soap, supplied in the form of solid soap bars. No graphite, excellent lubricity, good adherence.

“ALU-JECT Stick should be stored in a cool dry place. Please refer to the “Safety Data Sheet” for proper handling and first aid instructions.”

APPLICATIONS

  • Aluminum Extrusion lubrication of dummy block, billet face, container seal face, billet and butt shears etc.
  • Lubricating Steel Wires following surface grinding (after welding).
  • The product can be used to lubricate most steel surfaces.

USAGE

ALU-JECT PB TABLETS

ALU-JECT PB Tablets : A non-pigmented, lubricant in tablet form designed for billet end coating. It is formulated using organometallic compounds which apply a boundary film to prevent welding of the billet to the dummy block; providing excellent release characteristics.

USAGE

OCULAR REFRACTOMETER

OCULAR REFRACTOMETER

A hand held refractometer with Brix scale to measure water based soluble fluids concentration. Calibrate with distilled water or water used to dilute product. Reference temperature : 20 °C (68 °F)

DESCRIPTION

  • ALU-JECT is a non-pigmented, water based lubricant designed for billet end coating. It is formulated using organometallic compounds which apply a boundary film to prevent welding of the billet to the dummy block, providing excellent release characteristics.
  • ALU-JECT is capable of wetting temperatures as high as 1112 0F (600 0C).

PRECAUTIONS

ALU-JECT should be stored in a cool dry place. The product can withstand freezing, however it should not be allowed to have more than one freeze/thaw cycle. Partially used containers should be re-sealed to prevent evaporation and contamination.
