Stamping and Forming
PICO drawing, stamping, and forming fluids provide regulatory
and safety compliance without sacrificing performance, perform admirably in
severe drawing applications, and successfully eliminate
staining and cleaning during down stream processes.
a complete line of metalforming fluids for light-duty stamping to multi-stage progressive
deep drawing applications on ferrous and non-ferrous surfaces including stainless
steel, aluminum alloys, zinc coated, copper/brass, galvanized, and pre-painted sheets.
PICODRAW Synthetic Series feature clear,
water-based fluids that outperform oil-based
and heavy chlorinated paraffins without the issues such as residues, mixability
and cleanability. PICODRAW Synthetics
offer substantial performance
improvements and cost reductions. View a published press
PICOFORM and PICOSTAMP series offer improved tool life and performance while evaporating quickly without leaving residues.
PICOEXTRUD Series offer chlorine-free formulations, improved tool and
die life, smooth metal finishes, low foaming, mild
odors, and clarity to view finished
work-pieces as well as fixtures. View the published press
release on PICOEXTRUD 412P
and the technical
article about forming lubricants for fasteners
and complex cold extruded parts.
PICOMIST Series are used as received
in small quantities for “near dry”
machining and cutting applications. Most are formulated
with naturally derived lubricants for high lubrication, easy cleaning,
and minimal interference on down-stream processes, which help users reduce consumption, lengthen tool life and
PICOSPIN Series are designed
for the special art of metal spinning/forming
that allow metal spinners to easily form shapes without
difficult cleaning or dermatitis issues.
