Application Method:

    McLube 1830 mandrel lubricant is intended to be applied as received to clean, dry mandrel surfaces. Dilutions with water are possible depending upon the method of application and specific process characteristics of hose compound and construction. Start with a clean, dry mandrel. All previously used mandrel lubricants and any compound residue should be removed by an appropriate method. McLube Mold Cleaner may be used. Application of McLube 1830 can be accomplished by spraying, wiping, dipping or flow coating a thin, even film over the entire mandrel surface. For previously uncoated mandrels, two coats should be applied. Once the mandrel has cycled through the system once, only one coating need be applied. A coating of McLube 1830 will dry in 10 to 30 minutes, depending upon the application technique. Spraying the product will speed up the drying time. External heat sources can be used to further facilitate drying. Although it is recommended that McLube 1830 be dry prior to tubing, some manufacturers are tubing immediately with no adverse effects. The specific processing characteristics of the tube compound and the hose constructions used will influence the need to dry the coating.

Safety and Handling:

    The Material Safety Data Sheet should be reviewed before using McLube 1830 mandrel lubricant. McLube 1830 has a very low order of toxicity; however good industrial hygiene practices should be observed. Safety glasses and gloves are recommended when using this product. Freezing of the product should be avoided.
