Safety-Lube® Die Lubricants

Chem-Trend die lubricants have been the industry standard of performance for almost fifty years. Our commitment to continuously advancing the performance of our technology has allowed Chem-Trend to offer high pressure die casters the most comprehensive product line of liquid and powdered die lubricants for aluminum, magnesium, zinc, squeeze and semi-solid casting operations. The demand for more complex castings and reduced processing times has lead to the development of products that address the most difficult process requirements:

  • High temperature die adhesion properties
  • Cleaner, installation-ready parts
  • Elimination of residues for better post-finishing and painting needs
  • Reduced micro-porosity
  • Improved insulation and laminar fill properties
  • Environmentally-friendly products

Chem-Trend offers an extensive range of die lubricant technology created to address the most demanding of die casting processes.
