Power-Lube® Plunger Lubricants

Chem-Trend plunger lubricants keep things moving and production going. But if you're looking for the reasons that have made Power-Lube® Plunger Lubricants a leading product in the industry, it goes beyond just the physics of repetitive motion. A full line of water-based, oil-based and dry lubricants provide superior protection and longer life to shot sleeves and steel and copper beryllium plunger tips. In addition, reliable, consistent shot-to-shot profiles ensure part quality by reducing porosity.

Power-Lube® plunger lubricants offer superior wetting and film building for maximum protection and can dramatically reduce the impact on the environment with reduced smoke and flame. Power-Lube® lubricants are available in powders, pellets, liquids and graphite-free formulations allowing casters to realize:

  • Consistent Shot and Better Part Quality
  • Reduced Gas Inclusion/Reduced Porosity
  • Increased Shot Component Life
  • Reduced Smoke and Flame
  • Cleaner Working Environment

Chem-Trend's Power-Lube® plunger lubricants play an integral part in producing high-quality castings worldwide. Look below to determine what product type might be best for your application process.
