HYKOGEEN 87/43 is a stable, flowable dispersion of graphite in a mineral oil based carrier liquid.
HYKOGEEN 87/43 has excellent wetting and penetrating properties, ensuring a homogenous lubrication film on hot die surfaces. Its excellent releasing properties result in significantly reduced press force and improved die life.
HYKOGEEN 87/43 is used for extrusions in hot forg-ing of steel (e.g. forging of valves).
Due to its composition HYKOGEEN 87/43 is suitable for forging of mono and bi-metal valves of special alloys.
