Drive efficiency

As engineers push new boundaries in design, die cast components are becoming increasingly complex. From shock towers, e-motor housings, battery housings, engine blocks and more, we increase efficiency when casting these components, allowing you to drive production, reduce scrap, and be more sustainable in the process.

Maximize performance

From hydraulic fluids and plunger lubricants to our water-based lubricants with Smart Polymer technology and patented water-free electrostatic solution Lubrolene®, we help maximize die casting performance. Our experts will help you get better die lubricant coverage, and optimize processes to achieve a consistent, uniform die release.


Lighter, thinner walled castings through to large, one-piece structural castings are a necessity to lightweighting and automotive manufacturing. Our water-free electrostatic lubricants and electrostatic spray equipment combined together can be used with all die casting machines right up to the latest generation of >4,500T machines. We help you cast ever-larger, ever-more complex components faster, without compromising on quality.
