Forging press/hammer forging lubrication
PHOSPHATHERM®BLACK and PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE
lubricants have proven themselves with all general
steel and metal grades, workpiece sizes and
forming conditions in the following applications:
- Vertical forging presses
- Fast moving horizontal presses
- Hammer forges
- Ring rolling processes
- Railroad wheel production
By experience graphite products do have the
best physical lubricating properties and are
more forgiving in terms of an inadequate process
application or insufficient adjusted spray systems.
By introducing synthetic lubricants one might not
expect to obtain an equal result just by keeping the
old process parameters. To attain the best forging
results an optimised spray system is a prerequisite
when switching to synthetic lubricants.
The PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE lubricants are
providing a clear recognizable white layer
on the sprayed die surface, giving a distinct
indication of the application quality.
The evaporating water of the spray solution
provides a cooling effect when sprayed on the

PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE products have a
better shelf-stability and will not settle out,
even compared to the best graphite lubricants.
PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE lubricants are
non-conducting and will not short circuit
nearby electrical equipment.
The drive to eliminate graphite from forging
operations is strong enough for Budenheim
to continue to invest in phosthetic lubricant
development, allowing customers to benefit
from a continuously improving product line.
Budenheim’s phosthetic, water soluble
PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE lubricants are specifically
formulated to replace graphite products in light to
medium and also complex applications, providing
several distinct advantages:
PHOSPHATHERM®WHITE lubricants build a
highly viscous adhesive film upon contact
with the hot die surface. This complex
phosphatizing effect is responsible for the
unique lubrication of Budenheim phosthetic ’s.
The forging process is uninterrupted as the
water evaporates instantaneously when
sprayed on the hot die.
