Nonferrous rolling lubricants have been built around soluble-oil emulsion technology. What works in aluminum rolling applications may not always provide the desired results/benefits for copper rolling applications. This presentation reviews the various copper rolling lubricants utilized and provides insight into the attributes that new technologies can deliver. By making use of new chemical technology, next-generation rolling lubricants can be developed that provide improvements in consistency of operation, improvements in lubrication properties, and improvements to metal surface finish.
