CONDAT CORPORATION continues to invest in improvements to its manufacturing facility and equipment for the wire drawing lubricants production. Most recently, a new ‘sigma' calcium soap mixer was installed to improve capacity and flexibility, along with a fully integrated and automatic bulk lime silo: the latter also aimed at improving Operator working conditions by reducing physical handling of bagged lime. In addition, a new high shear mixer has been added to enable the local manufacture of products such as soluble pastes (the VICAFIL® SP RANGE), drawing greases ( VICAFIL® TFG RANGE) and some of the more viscous soluble lubricants ( VICAFIL® SL RANGE).
CONDAT CORPORATION has recently launched a new non-reactive pre-coating VICAFIL TS 7112 : this versatile new product is both borax-free and phosphate free, and may be used for both in-line applications (following mechanical descaling etc.) or for batch dip coating systems. Designed for processing both high carbon steels and low carbon steels in a variety of applications (ranging from high speed drawing to cold heading applications), this product significantly improves drawing performance, while addressing the environmental concerns associated with boron and phosphate based salts.
ENHANCED GLASS LUBRICATION KNOW HOW :
Using its 158 years of experience in manufacturing specialty lubricants, CONDAT introduces a range of glass lubricants to the North American marketplace.
BIOGLASS SHEAR LUBRICANTS
CONDAT's range of shear lubricants offer prolonged shear life, excellent shear cut, corrosion protection, and decreased shear marks. The high dilutions of BIOGLASS shear lubricants offer outstanding cost-effective performance.
RESIGRAPH DELIVERY COATINGS
These graphite based, two part coatings provide a low coefficient of friction allowing the gob to be easily delivered to the mold. The coating also insulates the gob from excessive heat loss. These coatings have exceptional adhesion to the delivery chute surface, effectively eliminating the transfer of any particulate to the glass. Performance, quality, economical.
CONDAGLASS SWABBING COMPOUNDS
CONDAT's swabbing compounds contain a blend of graphite and high temperature additives allowing it to penetrate and provide a lubrication film across the entire mold surface. With minimal smoke on application the swabbing compound eliminates checks and residue buildup and provides exceptional release properties. The uniform coating provides a bright finish to the glass surface with minimal transfer of the coating.
