NEOCASTER - PLUNGER LUBRICANTS

In die casting, the plunger lubricant is essential for lubrication of the sleeves and tips that are used to force the molten metal into the molds. Plunger Lubricants are used primarily in aluminum casting processes for items such as automobile parts, motorcycle parts, and mobile phone components.

NEOCASTER LV-50
400 - 600
~0.97
Milky White Emulsion
NEOCASTER LV-50 is a lower viscosity, minumum dosage plunger lubricant which allows for application via the backspray application method. LV-50 shows excellent lubricating performances and an increase on tip and sleeve life.
High Performance/Backspray Application
NEOCASTER LV-70
500 - 800
~0.97
Milky White Emulsion
NEOCASTER LV-70 is an improved minimum dosage plunger lubricant showing high lubricating performance with lower dosage amounts over conventional and RE-series. Lower dosage increases the tipe and sleeve life of a machine.
High Performance/Backspray Application
NEOCASTER RE-76
1200 - 1600
~0.96
Milky White Emulsion
NEOCASTER RE-76 is an heat resistance improved type over RE-77 and exhibits excellent lubricating performance. Can be used in larger machines
General Purpose
NEOCASTER RE-77
600 - 800
~0.96
Milky White Emulsion
NEOCASTER RE-77 is suitable for small- and medium-sized machines and designed to improve the quality of the shot sleeve over conventional oil-based products.
