  • Patent number: 6318139
    Abstract: A waterborne lubricant for the cold plastic working of metals that contains alkali metal salts of dimer(s) and/or trimer(s) of unsaturated fatty acids with from 10 to 24 carbon atoms per molecule has a lubrication performance at least as good as that of prior lubricants, even at generally lower lubricating film weights, has a long bath life, and generates little dust during cold plastic working operations. Even as little as 5% of these salts of dimer(s) and/or trimer(s) of unsaturated fatty acids, when mixed with conventional alkali metal salts of saturated fatty acids with from 10-24 carbon atoms per molecule, can provide these benefits.

  • Patent number: 5733386
    Abstract: A highly corrosion-resistant, paint-adherent, and lubricating polymer-containing coating on a metal surface can be formed by contact with an aqueous solution (pH=2.0 to 6.5) that contains an acidic compound and polymer with the following formula (I): ##STR1## in which the X bonded to the phenyl ring in formula (I) represents a hydrogen atom, a hydroxyl group, a C.sub.1 to C.sub.5 alkyl group, a C.sub.1 to C.sub.5 hydroxyalkyl group, a C.sub.6 to C.sub.12 aryl group, a benzil group, a benzal group, an unsaturated hydrocarbon moiety condensed to the phenyl ring so as to form a naphthalene ring, or a group corresponding to formula (II): ##STR2## in which R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 in formula (II) each independently represent a hydrogen atom, a hydroxyl group, a C.sub.1 to C.sub.10 alkyl group, or a C.sub.1 to C.sub.10 hydroxyalkyl group; the Y.sup.1 and Y.sup.

  • Patent number: 5591275
    Abstract: A bath for treating metal surfaces for the formation thereon of composite films for the cold working of metal advantageously comprises an otherwise conventional conversion coating bath that also contains organic cationic polymer having at least 1 cationic nitrogen atom per molecule and having a molecular weight of 1,000 to 1,000,000, or a salt of such a polymer. Major improvements in the lubrication properties, particularly in the seizure resistance, can be achieved by applying out a conventional lubrication treatment on such a composite film. Specifically, practical operating limits in metal cold working, e.g., the working degree or ratio, working speed, tool life, and the like, can be increased in a single step. This is useful in terms of improving productivity, product stability, cost reduction, and the like.
