Priamus X255 is a highly detergent emulsifiable fluid designed for drawing all wire sizes, from rod to fine wire. The lubricity package extends the die life, minimizes wire breaks and increases productivity, while enhancing the surface finish. The careful balance of complex anionic emulsifiers enable a high detergency, ensuring the cleanliness required for fine wire sizes especially on multi-wire machines. With increased concentration, Priamus X255 provides the perfect lubricity needed for larger wire sizes up to rod sizes without compromising cleanliness.

Aluminium: Priamus X255 is successfully used for drawing aluminium alloys on slip machines with entry size of 9.5mm. Priamus X255 emulsions are fit for use in continuous annealers with a 1-2% concentration.
