Superdraw PIB-S1000 and Superdraw PIB-S5000 are used to lubricate the drawing of aluminium tube.

The advantages of these two synthetic grades over traditional oil-based drawing lubricants is significant, with ultra-clean anneal leaving ultra low residues after annealing, combined with truly excellent lubrication.

The two grades simply differ in their viscosity, both based on the same polymer and synthetic ester chemistry.
