CUSTOMER & TEST PROFILE

Test was conducted by the FBI and Mr. Terry Paul with the Paul Company, Inc. They tested a H&K MP5, 9mm sub- machine gun. This firearm has a very high cyclic rate around 800 rounds per minute. They have lots of lubricant failures using xx (national brand) lubricants. The guns get hot and then they jam.

CUSTOMER TEST & RESULTS

The MP-5 was left in direct sunlight to heat up. The test was to see if there was a TD (time differential) that could be recorded. A timer that is used by pistol marksmen was used to record the time relay. The firearm was thoroughly cleaned and degreased, and dried before applying a coating of xx to the action. They fired a total of five (5), 30 round magazines for the test of this lubricant. These five (5) tests averaged a TD of 2.8 seconds. They loaded another maga- zine and the gun jammed with 11 rounds left in the maga- zine. The MP-5 was allowed to cool for an hour before they be- gan the test with Petron Plus Industrial Super Lube (ISL). Everything was repeated as far as the preparation and cleaning was concerned. The MP-5 was lubed with ISL and allowed to “cure” for 20 minutes. The first magazine timed in at 1.9 seconds. After firing the other four magazines they had an average TD with Petron Plus ISL in the MP-5, of 1.13 seconds, this is equivalent of 300 rounds more per min- ute. The rate of fire was so fast that the MP-5 would be empty before the first shell casing hit the ground. Secondly we fired a total of 250 rounds thru the MP-5 and could not get it to slow or jam.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL McDONNELL DOUGLAS

  • SHERIDAN-GRAY 1500 ALUMINUM STRETCH PRESS
  • THE MATERIAL WAS GALLING & MARRING MATERIAL SURFACES & DIE SURFACES
  • NEEDED A LUBRICANT THAT WOULD STAND-UP UNDER 75,000 TONS OF PRESSURE

CUSTOMER & TEST PROFILE

CIRCUMSTANCES:

A Sheridan-Gray (a Division of Erie Press Systems), 1500 Aluminum Stretch Press used to stretch and shape 0.061” to 0.091” thickness aluminum, 85” wide by 290” long for the C-17 aircraft skins. The skins were galling and marring material surfaces and the die surfaces during the stretching operation. All die lubricants used to that time were inade- quate to cure the problem. There are two (2) jaws on the press, each jaw exerting 75,000 tons of pressure. Under such high pressure, frequent die-lubricant failure occurs. Material costs are very high, and man-hours spent reworking, replac- ing, and reshaping the materials are extremely costly.

NEED:

They needed a die lubricant that will stand-up under 75,000 tons of pressure and prevent damage to both the material and the die surface. Further, such lubricant must be easily re- moved with standard solvent, or water-soluble degreaser after working the material, so that the aluminum skin may be ano- dized and painted.

TESTS & PERFORMANCE RESULTS

Under the supervision of the Project Engineer, Subordinate Engineers, Press Operators and Section Manager we blended a mixture of Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000 proto- type at a 20% ratio with the McDonnell Douglas current die lubricant in an isolated 5 gallon container. The two fluids blended very well, creating a new end-use fluid. Once mixed, the blended ingredients were manually applied to the die sur- face of several smaller stretch presses, break-presses, and stretch forming machines.

This machine is a similar machine to the one McDonnell Douglas has Operators then proceeded to perform the process operations in their normal manner. In all cases the material being stretched and formed worked into place than before, more quickly, with less noise. The operation took less time, and the mate- rials conformed to the required shape and dimen- sions very quickly with little stress. Upon closer inspection, the worked material showed NO scarring, marring, scratches, or other material stress or damage, nor did the die surface. The pulls were classified as “production perfect”. In additional, operators and their supervisors noted that all materials worked using the Petron mixture were free from a metal surface condition called “the orange peel effect”, a condition that tends to occur in metal frequently when exposed to such stretching pressures. The condition is not harmful to metal, but is detrimental to the “finish”, or the “cosmetic” effect of the finished goods and is not desirable.

Because of the 100% success ratio with all parts tested on the smaller metal forming units, approval was given to try the prod- uct on the Sheridan-Gray 1500 Stretch Press. Again, with supervisor and management present, the operators manually applied the Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000 prototype blend with the existing lubricant. Once applied the operation commenced using a 0.61 sheet of Aluminum. The material reacted in a manner similar to materials on the smaller presses. It slid into place more easily than usual, worked into place more quickly, took the stress with no noise and conformed to the die shape faster than was the normal experience, accord- ing to the press operators. Again, upon close inspection of the material after stretching and conforming, there were NO scratches, marring, galling, or any sign of damage that frequently accompanied the process. Another test using a 3/16” aluminum sheet yielding the same results. Examination of the large die surface also showed NO sign of stress, wear, or damage after the stretch process. In ad- dition, the operators noted that the die was still adequately lu- bricated, and would probably be able to accommodate another pull without re-lubricating the surface.

As a result of the test, McDonnell Douglas worked with Petron to develop a production configuration of the Petron Plus For- mula 7 MetalForm 2000. The production Engineering People asked that we create an “End Use” product, one that combined our Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000 with their existing die lubricant, so that operators and manufacturing personnel would not have to blend their own die configurations on the floor. As a result, Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000-P was created, a total replacement product. McDonnell Douglas introduced the product into their engineer- ing, R&D, Production Testing, and Environmental Safety De- partments for extensive testing. After almost a year of stringent tests the product was approved for use throughout McDonnell Douglas and given a Douglas Part Number. Because of the successful results in California, and the extensive testing given the product, the Oklahoma facility also asked for a technical advisor to review their process engineering lubricants on smaller, yet still critical metal forming machinery. The test were conducted on-site at the Tulsa facility using stretch machinery to form the F18 pylon. Form die #74A730354-2001.

CIRCUMSTANCES:

Current lubricant for stretch forming and extrusion stretch forming in a water soluble oil. Parts have been heat-treated then stored in a walk-in freezer prior to being stretch formed. The material is coated with ice crystals when being worked, which melt at room temperature and dilutes the Water Soluble oil, often causing the parts to be subjected to galling and mate- rial damage.

NEED:

Something to improve the extreme pressure properties of the existing lubricant and prevent the frequent galling and damage to the material being worked.

TESTS & PERFORMANCE RESULTS:

The General Forman of Fabrication, Section Supervisors, and the Press Operators participated in the actual testing of the Petron Plus Formula 7 2000 product at working presses. Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000 was blended with this plant’s existing die lubricant at 20% ratio, then manu- ally applied to the operating dies. After the stretching opera- tion the parts were carefully inspected and all inspector’s were in agreement that the product had contributed to greatly reducing the friction and galling or damage to the parts being pulled, as well as reducing the “Orange Peel Ef- fect”, which had been a frequent normal occurrence prior to the introduction of Petron Plus Formula & MetalForm 2000. As an adjunct of the testing, the supervisors and operators noted that the die still seemed to have significant lubricant coating after the stretch forming of the first part. A decision was made to pull additional parts without re-lubricating the die and to measure the effect on the materials being worked. A total of five (5) high quality production parts were pulled off of a single coating of the Petron Plus Formula 7 Metal- Form blended with existing lubricant, and achievement un- heard of prior to this time. As a result of the on-site testing, and the subsequent depart- mental testing for the approval and adoption of the product, the McDonnell Douglas Corporation accepted and imple- mented use of Petron Plus Formula 7 MetalForm 2000-P for the process engineering operations in Stretch Presses, Extru- sions, Break Presses, and other metal forming operations. In additional, the firm adopted a number of other Petron Plus Formula 7 products (Transmission & Gearbox Supple- ment, Industrial Super Lube, High-Temperature, EP Grease, Engine Conditioner) for use in maintaining their plant equipment.
