Houghton Intl. offers Houghto-Size 7048, a sizing lubricant that contains no chlorine or sulfur additives specially formulated for ferrous powdered (sintered) metal applications.
A suitable replacement for chlorinated additive products, the synthetic, low-VOC, water-dilatable sizing compound is formulated with a rust inhibitor. It disperses readily in water and can be welded through with no toxic effects.
The product can be applied by brush, flood, drip, roll coat, or spray; is cleaned easily; and can be run at concentrations as low as 20 percent, depending on the application.
