Efficient Lubricants for Production of High Density PM Components

A key to high strength PM parts is to achieve high density of the parts. An attractive process route is to use high performing lubricants in combination with heated tool die. In this paper the synergies of lubricant content, efficiency of the lubricant and tool die temperature are reviewed and processing conditions for high density PM components are suggested.
