Wire drawingAluminum wire drawing and copper wire drawing
Wire drawing process

The drawing lubricants from the BECHEM Unopol series are renowned worldwide for their use in demanding wire drawing processes. Their excellent drawing performance and long service life continue to impress wire producers the world over. The intensive BECHEM development and research ensure unparalleled results in quality and productivity for modern wire drawing.


BECHEM has set itself the challenge of replacing classic drawing emulsions with the uncompromising continued development of fully synthetic drawing lubricants.  


Emulsions are the best choice for aluminum wire production. With the products from the BECHEM Unopol AL series, BECHEM has established a line of wire drawing media for the demands of drawing operations in rod breakdown and multiwire drawing processes as well as enameled wire production.


The BECHEM Unopol S series contains fully synthetic drawing lubricants for copper wire drawing that far exceed the performance of drawing emulsions and minimize maintenance effort.

Sheet metal formingBecause sheet metal is not simply sheet metal

The BECHEM product portfolio for sheet metal forming includes  


  • Immiscible, chlorine-free, punching and deep drawing oils from the Beruform STO series
  • Emulsifiable, chlorine-free, punching and deep drawing media from the Beruform STE series
  • Volatile punching media from the Beruform VSM series
  • Chlorine-free pastes from the Beruform STP series

From forming oils for simple processes and all metallic materials through to high-performance oils that present an alternative to chlorine-based products in stainless steel machining, BECHEM offers tailored lubrication solutions for your situation. They meet the ever-increasing requirements for the use of demanding metal alloys or even with regard to the surface quality as well as the residual dirt on parts.  




Besides process reliability and efficiency, BECHEM research and development is focused on the replacement of critical ingredients in metalworking fluids.

Examples of solid forming

Cooling lubrication for dies und pre-coating semi-finished products with the Beruforge and Berulit series. They meet the highest standards and enable optimal forming results during forward and backward extrusion in semi-hot and hot forming.  


At high tool temperatures, the BECHEM lubrication solutions are absolutely ideal for the loss and circular lubrication of hammer and press forges or profile rollers. When machining hubs, front axles, or crankshafts made of steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metals, the cooling lubricants offer good wear protection, outstanding detergency, and excellent cooling properties.  


Around the world, BECHEM products help minimize friction at, in some cases, huge degrees of deformation and under extreme surface pressures between the due and part. This creates semi-finished products and finished parts with perfect precision and optimum surface quality, ready for the intended use or for further finishing processes.
