Priamus V12

Priamus V12 is a Rod Breakdown, Intermediate and Fine Wire Drawing Lubricant


Product Description

Priamus V12 is based on new synthetic esters that mean the product is exremely clean and low foaming. It is a lowsoap emulsifiable lubricant that utilises new technologyemulsifier and sulfactant systems that exhibit low reactivity in the presence of copper. The product also possesses bistable characteristics in copper rich environments and this avoids the need for biocide additions.

Priamus V12 contains boundary lubricant additives to provide low Coeffcient of friction between Copper/Ceramic and Copper/Steel components and as a result a low reactivity provides consistent performance over long periods. Furthermore, special additives are incorporated in the formulation to keep Copper fines from coagulating. Low reactivity also results in excellent cleanliness and exceptionally long life is in use even at elevated operating temperatures.


Priamus V12 is optimised for the drawing plain and tinned Copper wire for the rod breakdown and intermediate, fine and superfine sizes on a single and multi-line machines. Priamus V12 is suitable for in line continuous annealers at 1-2%
