FORGING GRAPHITE PASTE
XL6800 is a general-purpose mold dressing, designed for long-length direct-chill castings of aluminum alloys (up to 200 ft). Its characteristics as a soft grease provide for smooth and efficient metal flow during the critical start-up period for casting molds for both flat and corrugated surfaces.
XL6800 is sold ready to use, and should be mixed well before use. Apply XL6800 to the surfaces of the mold prior to each pouring cycle. XL6800 can be swabbed by brush or sprayed onto mold surfaces using an appropriate high-pressure sprayer.
XL6800 can be diluted in a high flash point mineral oil for simple forging operations or cost reduction.
Easy clean up with industrial degreaser, followed by soap and water.
Keep container closed to prevent evaporation or contamination
