Capabilities   /  Dry Film Lubricant

Reduce friction. Make your process better.

When two surfaces slide against each other, they create friction, which can create a host of problems that disrupt your manufacturing line. Dry film lubricant is an environmentally friendly, solid-state material applied to steel that helps reduce friction as it moves through your presses and plant.


Smarter manufacturing for a wide range of applications.

Dry film lubricant helps improve steel formability and streamline the making of:

  • Automotive frame components
  • Mower decks
  • Cylinders
  • Tanks

Eliminates complications of working with liquid medium.

Using dry film lubricant instead of a liquid medium simplifies and streamlines your process. Worthington uses a borax-based lubricant that helps you create a cleaner and safer work environment. And because it’s water soluble, you can remove it easily with a hot water rinse.


Stop the presses less and save on supplies.

Choosing dry film lubricant not only improves steel’s formability. It also increases the life of your die, decreasing time and interruptions to do die maintenance. It also means you won’t have to pay for drawing lubricants or chemical wash operations.
