Chemola™ Desco 347 Die Saver

Die Lube and Forging Compound

Chemola™ Desco 347 Die Saver is a black, semi-fluid petroleum base compound developed for use in harsh, extreme temperature applications. Solid film lubrication withstands temperatures far beyond fluid capabilities. Chemola™ Desco 347 Die Saver’s semi-fluid consistency will allow excellent adhesion to hot dies. Chemola™ Desco 347 Die Saver will prevent damage to the work-piece and die, extending die life by reducing friction and preventing metal-to-metal galling.

Extreme temperatures cause the fluid portion of Chemola™ Desco 347 Die Saver to rapidly deteriorate, however, the solid lubrication film left behind will continue to protect the work-piece and die. The fluid portion’s function is to act as a carrier for the solid lubricants.

Recommended Uses

Use in forging of carbon and high strength steels, brass and aluminum.
