Abstract

Two new lubricant systems for cold forging of stainless steel have been developed. The main component of these systems are FeCl3 and ZnCa2(PO4)2, respectively. Both lubricant systems have been tested using a backward extrusion test. The results show excellent lubricating properties with respect to obtainable height of cup and friction. It is proposed that the formation of FeCl2 plays an important role in the lubrication mechanism of FeCl3. The ZnCa2(PO4)2 coating have been lubricated with sodium stearate and MoS2 and the best results were obtained with sodium stearate.
