Machine & Feeder Lubrication: VITROLIS IS X, VDV GLASSLINE
Outstanding thermal and oxidation stability combined with ultra-low carbon forming tendencies
Plunger Mechanism: VITROLIS PM 46
A specially developed 46cst plunger mechanism lubricant, combining all of the benefits
of the VITROLIS ISX grades with a reduced viscosity to ensure smoother operation
of the mechanism.
Shear Spray Lubricants: VITROLIS SHEARLUBE, VDV SYNSHEAR F
Designed to extend shear blade life and provide excellent shear cut accuracy
being biodegradable with excellent thermal and hard water tolerance
Delivery lubricants: VITROLIS DL HEAVY / LIGHT
Designed to reduce the coefficient of friction between the gob and the delivery
equipment allowing faster and more consistent loading of the gob.
Delivery coatings: VITROLIS DC, VDV GLASSLINE DDL
An epoxy resin graphite which is painted onto the delivery equipment to facilitate the
loading of the gob into the blank.
Blank & Mould: VITROLIS MM / VDV BML
A premium range of swabbing compounds that provide excellent forming consistency,
superior surface quality/ cleanliness, extended swabbing cycles and reduced build up in
the forming equipment. They are suitable for all processes including BB, PB and NNPB.
Auto Swab Robots: VDV SWABMATIC RANGE
An OEM approved range of sprayable swabbing compounds giving significantly
reduced application rates. Available in sulphur and zero sulphur versions
Pre-Coat: VITROLIS SPC
Pre-coats are often applied to blank & mould equipment to improve productivity following
mould changes. VITROLIS SPC pre-coats react immediately at room temperature and apply a lubricating film proven to provide excellent gob loading, parison release and to reduce or eliminate cracking/rejection. The product is designed to eliminate the need for swabbing during start up procedures.
A specially formulated light to medium viscosity lubricant and release agent for use on the
neck rings. It can be used on all processes and is particularly effective in reducing carry over of lubricant, therefore reducing the problem of ‘dirty neck rings’ on the formed container.
VDV anti checking lubricants are uniquely designed with fine colloidal graphite particles
and specialist wetting agents to eliminate any issues with checks, incisions or imperfections in the swabbing process.
