We produce welded wire mesh from drawn and rolled wire. In the process the wire is drawn reduced in area by 21-25% from the wire rods.
Is there any drawing lubricant (soap based) that can reduce the surface rusting of the finished drawn wire. Whe store the finished product outside and say it rains on the product, the welded wire mesh is rusty in one day.
We mechanically descale the wire rod which is 1010/1012 quality.
We currently use a very cheap soap lubricant from but we have been informed at a show there is a German lubricant that can do the what we want.
Can anyone help me with this
