VDV Lubricants: safest and most efficient technology of today and tomorrow

  Worker safety

Glassline® swabbing lubricants offer glass plants a controlled and limited corrosion impact on its moulds equipment.

Swabbingsmoke
Swabbing smoke
Mould swabbing operation is key for the glass forming process.  Swabbing lubricants are a combination of different chemicals and the use of them combined with the high temperature creates undesired effects on equipment, on glass and on people: corrosion and smoke. Glassline® lubricants offer the best compromise. 
Swabbing lubricants do contain sulphur; this chemical is necessary as it plays a role as lubricating improver when extreme pressure (EP) is present. EP conditions is definitely present when the gob is formed to a glass bottle through the different processes (blow/blow, press/blow or NNPB). Unfortunately, sulphur (and for sure excess of sulphur) has a metal corrosive impact, especially on bronze and bronze/nickel moulds; this negative effect will directly impact the quality and lifetime of mould equipment but also indirectly, glass bottles defects can occurred.
VDV Lubricants decided in 2016, in partnership with a specialised Belgian research institute (BIL), to identify and quantify the corrosion effect of swabbing lubricants during their application on heated metal surfaces; the objective was to come out with at least 1 solution.
Without going in details, below are some basic data from this study:
* Swabbing lubricants tested:
o Reference = typical swabbing formulation containing standard base oil, a package of additives (including sulphur based products) and graphite.
o Reference containing five different selected anti-corrosive agents
* Test conditions: 
o Copper plated ...
