LAMSTAMP 3488 is formulated as a die lubricant for cold rolled motor lamination steels, grain oriented iron-silicon alloys, and silicon based alloy steels used for electrical laminations. LAMSTAMP 3488 may cause rust on AK Steel C-5 and C-3 Phosphate coated steel. We recommend doing a rust test before using it on these coated steels. It is also suitable for galvanized and painted metals. LAMSTAMP 3488 is typically used in water dilutions at 6 to 10% concentrations. It forms stable solutions in waters of varying degrees of hardness and resists breakdown and inhibits the formation of foul odors caused by microbial attack. LAMSTAMP 3488 can be applied by Jet-Set® airless spray, roll coater, drip, or recirculating flood methods. Dies should be cleaned using a water based, carbide safe, cleaner such as TOWERKLENE 45-ARP.
