White Graphite Lubricant / Mould Release
Operating Temperatures From -30°F ( -34.34°C) to 3,272°F (1,760°C)
This high temperature white graphite lubricant can be used in a variety of applications ranging from a mould release to a general purpose lubricant where a white dry lubricant is required. It is an excellent mould release agent for plastics, rubber, metal, and glass as well as many other applications requiring a dry high temperature graphite film. Tri-Lox 5500 is not affected by most gases, chemicals, acids and other harsh compounds found in most industrial environments. When looking for the best white graphite lubricant available, Tri-Lox 5500 should be your first choice.
Tri-Lox 5500 White Graphite Lubricant Is Ideal for Many High-Temperature Mould Release Applications
Tri-Lox 5500 forms a non-wetting barrier preventing molten metals, rubber, glass, ceramic composites, and plastics from adhering to or reacting with moulds, dies, and other surfaces. We highly recommend Tri-Lox 5500 for:
• Providing Cleaner Mould Release and Minimizing Surface Defects • Increasing Mould/Die Life • Reducing Defects and Increasing Processing Speed • Insuring Cleaner Formed Shapes • Maintaining Desired Electrical Properties • Reducing Carbon Contamination Due to Graphite Plates • Providing Easy Release After “Sintering” • Providing Oxidation Resistance • Reducing Surface Friction • Railway Industry
Excellent for Use In:
• Molten Metal and Stamping Operations • Rubber Manufacturing • Plastics Manufacturing • Glass Making Operations
• Ceramics Manufacturing • High Temperature Casting, Extrusion, and Forging Operations • As a Coating on Electrical Heating Elements
High-Temperature White Graphite Lubricant Is Slick and Quick-Drying
Tri-Lox 5500 can be used in any application where a high-temperature, fast-drying lubricating compound is required. In addition to its excellent properties as a quick-release mould agent, Tri-Lox 5500 is also an outstanding extreme-pressure dry lubricant. Drying in less than two minutes, Tri-Lox 5500 is excellent at reducing friction and corrosion on aluminum, titanium, steel alloys, cast iron, brass, and copper, making it the lubricant of choice in a variety of high-temperature manufacturing and forging operations.
Using Our White Graphite Mould Release Reduces Production Costs
Tri-Lox 5500 reduces reruns of defective end products caused by adhesion and inefficient mould release. Remaining inert at extreme temperatures, Tri-Lox 5500 increases the life of die and molds by reducing surface friction, providing anti-oxidation barriers, and increasing resistance to corrosion. Its superb lubricity makes it ideal for reducing adhesion to even the most difficult shapes, improving mould release and shortening cycle times. A great electrical insulator and thermal conductor, Tri-Lox 5500 can be used on almost any surface. Its ability to reduce metal on metal friction makes it ideal for use on tracks, conveyors, oven parts, die-casting machines, and other high-temperature manufacturing operations. All of these benefits add up to less down time, less end product reruns, more efficiency, and more production savings.
Easy-to-Use White High-Temperature Graphite Lubricant
Tri-Lox 5500’s aerosol formula makes it easy to apply to even the most difficult to reach places. Each 13-ounce spray can covers approximately 28 sq. ft. of surface area. Tri-Lox 5500 is fast-drying, usually within one to two minutes.
