Reactive Soap Products for Steel Wire and Tube

Reactive soap products are used in the wire drawing and tube drawing industry before cold forming. Zinc phosphate coating process is applied after the wire coils are cleaned in acid pickling bath. After the zinc phosphate coating process, wires, rods or tubes to be drawn from die or mold enter the reactive soap bath to increase the surface glide. The metal surface covered with soap coating passes through the die comfortably and the drawing speeds can be increased.

Along with visually good appearance it provides a very good corrosion resistance during stock and transportation.
