CT 3430 is a fast evaporating thin film lubricant or “vanishing oil” which is particularly useful in the drawing, forming and roll forming of light gauge aluminum, steel, copper, brass, aluminized and galvanized steel. CT 3430 consists of two phases – (1) a solvent carrier and (2) a lubricating phase. The product is transparent and crystal clear “as received” and was formulated for use “as received”, particularly where elimination of after-cleaning is considered desirable or expedient.

The CT 3430 is normally applied by spray, but can also be applied by roller coat, brush or dip. The product is recommended for the forming of light gauge aluminized, galvanized, enameled or lacquered parts. It is also suitable as a rubber mold release agent. The CT 3430 also is used as a transparent, non-tacky lubricant for nylon rollers in the drape and curtain industry and the cleaning and lubricating of metal and plastics stamping dies prior to internal, on-the-shelf interim storage.
