Die-casting and Forging
PETROFER has a complete range of high-quality release agents for forging processes as well as for high pressure die-casting operations. Our UK Service Engineers are also available to conduct inspections of the in use products to ensure uninterrupted and cost-effective manufacturing with a maximised service life of production equipment. We also offer all the other fluid requirements for high pressure die-casting foundries, forges and hot metalworking processes.
The range includes water dilutable and water-free release agents for die-casting of aluminium, magnesium, zinc and other alloys. Wax-containing and wax-free products are available as well as our award winning bio-resistant formulations for cleaner, safer more efficient casting release. Petrofer also offer cost effective special products for novel minimal spray application methods.
