High carbon wire

It is necessary to subdivide the three main pre-treatments: First: acid cleaned plus coating (lime, borax, ZEL coating). Second: acid cleaned plus phosphate and coating layer (lime, borax, ZEL).

Third: Mechanical descaled plus coating layer (borax, ZEL) inline. For the above applications calcium soaps with a medium to high fat content are necessary. Whether pressure dies are to be used is also an important factor in selecting the correct lubricant.

Due to the relation between calcium and sodium soaps in the drawing machine, line speed is an additional influence on the combination of soaps; i.e. the higher the speed the greater the use of sodium soaps. For phosphate coated wire, sometimes benefits can be obtained using a calcium soap with a high content of fillers. We can adjust the colour of the finished wire.
