METDRAW 5130-HV is a synthetic drawing lubricant designed to form “seamless” tube from all metals. The lubricant offers the ultimate in die life and hydrodynamic separation available. METDRAW 5130-HV is applicable in plug drawing, sinking or mandrel drawing processes. The high viscosity of METDRAW 5130-HV reduces wear and friction especially during multiple draws. METDRAW 5130-HV is completely anneable and ashless. METDRAW 5130-HV is compatible with steel, aluminum, copper or brass tubing and well suited to form large or small diameters.
