GP-863 is a high performance lubricant for use in a wide variety of Aluminum casting applications as well as some Magnesium and Zinc applications. GP-863 exhibits unusually good wetting properties up to 900°F. This exceptionally good high temperature wetting means that GP-863 cools hotspots faster which leads to shorter cycle times and less solder buildup. GP-863 is also specifically designed to give a good surface finish that is free of staining or lubricant buildup that can cause a loss of dimensional accuracy.

GP-863 has shown superior results in a wide range of Aluminum die casting applications as well as some Magnesium and Zinc applications. Whereas most die casting lubricants begin to fail at die temperatures above 700°F, GP-863 continues to perform up to 900°F. This aspect of the product makes it especially useful for thick-walled, heavy weight castings such as automobile power train components.
Processing and Safety Guidelines
As with any contaminant, it is recommended that GP-863 residues should be removed from surfaces prior to painting or bonding for best results. However, if removal is not complete, residue of GP-863 is not known to cause fisheyes, orange peel or similar effects. For safety information, refer to Safety Data Sheet.
GP-863 is supplied in 5-gallon (40 lbs.), 55-gallon (440 lbs.) and 330-gallon (2640 lbs.) totes. Do not freeze. Do not store above 100° F.
