Product Description

Addvance 6170 is an environmentally friendly metal forming lubricant designed to bend fabricated tubing for the HVAC, automotive, aerospace and appliance industries.

Addvance 6170 is an oil free synthetic paste lubricant which tenaciously adheres to both the mandrel and the tube thereby reducing lubricant consumption and messy work areas.

Addvance 6170 is weldable, cleans off easily with only water and protects metal surfaces.

Addvance 6170 is the ideal choice for tube bending and heavy gauge deep drawing and forming operations.
