Electric Discharge Machining (EDM)

Buchem’s products protect, clean and maintain
Electrical discharge machining is the most important machining process for materials that are difficult to machine, such as hardened steel and hard metals – not only in toolmaking and mould making.

Our high-quality chemical products manufactured in house protect your start hole drilling machines as well as your wire and die-sinking EDM facilities against corrosion as well as clean and maintain them.

Upon request, we are happy to provide you with the safety data sheets for our products. Just ask us: buchem@buchem.de

Intensive cleaner to easily remove combustion residue on wire-cut and die-sinking machines.
Almost odourless.
Biodegradable.

Antikor HT
Aerosol can, 500 ml

Fully synthetic long-term corrosion inhibitor for all precision tools.
Ideal as adhesive lubricant for ejector pins up to 200 °C.
Can easily be removed with Solvo-Spray.

Solvo-Spray
Aerosol can, 500 ml

Excellent cleaning agent for residue-free degreasing.
Solvo-Spray’s combination of active agents releases greases, tar and many resins.
Please check compatibility before applying Solvo-Spray to plastics.
