Precoat Aluminum Medical Bottles being manufactured

An aluminum cold forming operation producing medical bottles was expensing an average $2.28 for tooling costs per drawn part. In addition to the cost, they were also experiencing inconsistent part quality. With 200,000 parts produced annually, the total annual cost Read more…


Flash corrosion is a severe problem that plagues many water-borne-type pretreatment lines. Flash corrosion, or flash rust, occurs quickly when thin water films reside on metal surfaces, which triggers the corrosive action. A secondary process is then required to remove Read more…


Water-Based lubricant for metal cold forming

A cold forming operation was using a percholorethylene and wax combination as a lubricant over a conversion coating for numerous aluminum forming applications.  The costs of using this type of lubricant layer were excessively high due to the highly regulated Read more…


corrosion inhibitor for tube mill

In an effort to provide a cleaner, easier to use, and more cost effective corrosion inhibitor, Freiborne developed the FreiGuard 313 corrosion inhibitor. The Freiguard 313 is an excellent replacement for  traditional water emulsifiable corrosion inhibitors.  FreiGuard 313 triples the Read more…
