Die Casting Lubricants

Without the proper lubrication, die casting equipment can be difficult to maintain and product quality can suffer. The DIE SLICK® product line offers more than 60 different release agents for aluminum, zinc and magensium die casting operations made up of a combination of traditional, semi-synthetic and smart polymer technologies. The PLUNGER SLICK®, LADLE SLICK and PROTECT-O-METAL lines bolster our die casting lineup to provide lubrication for every moving part on your machine and more.
