Cold rolling Oils

The RI-LAMIN range of products are normally used as:
  • Dispersions (HD Technology)  
  • Emulsions (CRM Technology)
In both cases a combination of synthetic esters and surfactants provides uniform oil droplet distribution. This provides excellent emulsion stability with varying stress levels and delivers a low oil consumption rate.
The products are suitable for all steel types such as normal carbon steels, high carbon steels, Boron steels, Silicon steels, high strength alloyed grades, IF steels and other deep drawing grades, such as Ferritic steel.


RI-LAMIN HD series:
RI-LAMIN HD is a lubricant specifically designed for Reversible Cold Rolling Mills.
RI-LAMIN HD exploits H.A.R.D. technology which allows relatively large oil droplet size emulsions to remain homogeneous under mild agitation conditions.
RI-LAMIN HD is totally synthetic and contains no natural esters or animal fats, and has the following advantages:

  • High lubrication quality due to rapid oil plate-out in the roll bite
  • Very good strip cleanliness due to the highly detergent nature of the surfactant package.
  • Reduced roll wear on all types of steel alloys
  • Consistent rolling with good mill stability
  • Potential for increased rolling speed and productivity
  • Improved housekeeping due to clean mill housing
  • Non-sticky oil residues
  • Non-sticky Fe residues
  • Low agitation needed to homogenise

RI-LAMIN TM-S series:
RI-LAMIN TM-S and RM-S series are oils are used as emulsions in sheet rolling, they are suitable for reversing mills, and coil fed tandem mills and continuous/coupled tandem mills.
These products are mineral oil free and contains no animal fats, and have the following advantages:
  • High lubrication quality due to rapid oil plate-out in the roll bite
  • Very good strip cleanliness due to the highly detergent nature of the surfactant package
  • Reduced roll wear on all types of steel alloys
  • Consistent rolling with good mill stability
  • Potential for increased rolling speed and productivity
  • Improved housekeeping due to clean mill housing
  • Maximises oil-plate-out when needed

RI-LAMIN DR series oils are used as dispersions in double rolling of thin steel (DCR Mills), they are suitable for reductions of up to 45 % single pass.
 
RI-LAMIN TM-T series oils are used as emulsions for thin steel “tinplate” rolling, they are suitable for both coil fed tandem mills and continuous/coupled tandem mills.
 
RI-LAMIN ZM series oils for Sendzmir and cluster mills. These are suitable for mild steel, stainless, chrome and many other alloys.
