Product Description

WireWorks 50500 is both a biodegradable and biostable copper wire drawing lubricant composed of natural renewable resources.

WireWorks 50500 will draw copper or copper clad wire from rod to fine diameters (0.3299- 0.0100) clean and stain free. The particle size of the emulsion produces high finish wire with exceptional die life.

WireWorks 50500 has low surface tension and high lubricity to reduce down time at high-speed production rates.
