Metalloid Wire Logo

WIREWORKS 10005 is a unique approach to the dry drawing of wire without the drawbacks associated with calcium or sodium based soaps. WIREWORKS 10005 is a composite solid lubricant that has been flaked and sized for easy handling. It is a synergistic blend of natural and synthetic additives designed to maximize die life and surface finish of drawn wires. This lubricant has the ability to draw mixed metals at variable speeds, using multiple dies at high reduction rates.
