Boelube Products

BOELUBE® - A Boeing developed lubricant for use in any workshop

Produced under license from Boeing Management Company. BOELUBE® is among the trademarks owned by BOEING. These products represent a family of proprietary lubricants developed through Boeing manufacturing operations and lubricant experience. The Orelube Corporation holds an exclusive worldwide license from Boeing Management Company to manufacture and market the BOELUBE® series of lubricants.

BOELUBE® fights friction at the interface of the cutting edge and work piece. The reduction of friction at these surfaces minimises heat generation and concurrent chip weld. Tools retain their cutting edge longer, leading to closer tolerances and prime chip yield. BOELUBE® is available in:

  • Liquid
  • Paste
  • Solid
  • Water Soluble

The choice of which physical form to use will depend on the operation, material type, speeds and feed rates.

Manufactured from personal care ingredients, BOELUBE® is non-toxic, non-irritating and environmentally safe. MSDS Material Safety Data Sheets are available on all the BOELUBE® Products. A handy link to these is located on each of the different product pages. BOELUBE® is non-corrosive, non-flammable, chemically stable, and free of halogens, heavy metals, sulphur, phosphorus, silicone, petroleum and paraffin wax.

Applications include Abrasive Belts, Bending, Cold Working, Deburring, Drilling, Drop Hammer, Forming, Grinding, Milling, Punching, Reaming, Routing, Sawing and Tapping.

BOELUBE® “A Better Way"

Produced under license from Boeing Management Company. BOELUBE® is among the trademarks owned by BOEING. These products represent a family of proprietary lubricants developed through Boeing manufacturing operations and lubricant experience. The Orelube Corporation holds an exclusive worldwide license from Boeing Management Company to manufacture and market the BOELUBE® series of lubricants.

NQ Engineering & Fabrication holds an exclusive distributor right to market and distribute the BOELUBE® series of lubricants throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea .

Unique Chemistry Manufactured from personal care ingredients, BOELUBE® is non-toxic, non-irritating and environmentally safe. BOELUBE® is non-corrosive, non-flammable, chemically stable, and free of halogens, heavy metals, sulphur, phosphorus, silicone, petroleum and paraffin wax. BOELUBE® does not contain any ingredients considered a hazardous substance by OSHA, WHMIS, IARC, NTP, and State Regulatory Lists. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheets for additional information.

High Efficiency Lubrication - High lubricity and unique polar properties are the keys to its ability to provide superior metalworking lubrication.The application of minute amounts of BOELUBE® , which is consumed in the metalworking process, will greatly improve tool life , surface finish and hole quality. BOELUBE® provides superior lubricity when machining materials such as aluminium and titanium where high quality finish and increases of 200% or more in tool life is observed. Cost savings are derived through longer tool life, increased productivity, reduced lubricant usage, lower shop maintenance costs, and clean chips, parts and machinery.

Advantages - BOELUBE® will not promote dermatitis and presents a safe effective method for operators to machine various types of metal, composites, graphite, etc. without special handling or typical disposal problems.
BOELUBE® is easily removed with water-based cleaner, isopropyl alcohol or denatured alcohol. In most cases BOELUBE® does not have to be removed prior to heat treat, and may be compatible with paints and sealants (testing is recommended and should be performed). BOELUBE® may also be left on the work piece for subsequent machining or as a corrosion inhibitor .

Application - BOELUBE® is available in Liquid, Paste, Solid and Water-Soluble form. Applications include Abrasive Belts, Bending, Cold Working, Deburring, Drilling, Drop Hammer, Forming, Grinding, Milling, Punching, Reaming, Routing, Sawing and Tapping. The choice of which physical form to use will depend on the operation, material type, speeds and feed rates.

Boelube® Liquids 70104

BOELUBE®70104 forms part of a series of proprietary lubricants developed through Boeing manufacturing operations and lubricant experience. BOELUBE® liquid, in combination with air, keeps tools cool and removes chips. Spray or one shot applications leave a minimal amount of BOELUBE® Liquid that can be left on the work piece for subsequent machining or as a corrosion inhibitor. BOELUBE® does not contain Silicone, Sulphur, Halogens (such as Chlorine), Phosphorus, Paraffin Wax, Petroleum or Heavy Metals. BOELUBE® is recommended for use with machining Aluminium, Titanium, Inconel, Stainless Steel, Graphite, Composites, Honeycomb, Kevlar, Wood, Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals. BOELUBE® provides superior lubricity when machining materials such as Aluminium and Titanium resulting in high quality finish while extending tool life by 200% or more. Boelube applications include Cold Working - Deburring - Drilling - Drop Hammer - Forming - Grinding - Milling - Oil Hole Tools - Punching - Reaming - Routing - Tapping - Thread Cutting.

BOELUBE® HAND HELD LUBRICATOR - HHL 70104

Just insert the Non-Rotating Bit into the opening at the top of the lubricator and withdraw. The rolled carpet in the Hand Held Lubricator has acted as a chip wipe and lubricated the drill, tap or reamer.

The HHL 70104 is designed to accommodate tools up to 1/4 inch in diameter. It is not unusual to drill a substantial number of holes before having to re-lubricate the drill. Being only 3 inches tall and 1 1/4 inches in diameter, the HHL easily fits in a pocket or tool box.

BOELUBE® 90 will remain in a fully liquid state at temperatures as low as -20 F.

Boelube® Pastes

BOELUBE® Pastes provide excellent lubricity and are extremely cost effective in single point work such as Tapping, Drilling and Reaming. A small amount of Paste applied to the tool is all that is required to obtain a high quality finish and extended tool life with little or no clean-up required. Brush it on or dip tool in paste.

BOELUBE® pastes are also ideal for Forming and Bending as well as in Drop Hammer, Verson Press and Spin Forming applications.

BOELUBE® Pastes provide closer tolerance parts and extended diaphragm and die life.

Currently available in:

  • 70307 - Medium (Blue)
  • 70305 - Hard (Pink)

For the majority of Paste applications BOELUBE® 70307 (Medium) is primarily recommended.

Boelube® Solid 70200

They provide a cost effective means of producing a high quality finish in a multitude of applications such as:

  • Drilling
  • Tapping
  • Reaming
  • Abrasive Belts
  • Files
  • Deburring Tools
  • Grinding Wheels
  • Chisels
  • Band, Circular and Hand Saw Blades

BOELUBE® Solids improve tool life by reducing heat build-up in belt, disc or wheel grinding operations.

Apply the push-up tube to the tool before start up.

Individual BOELUBE® Blocks are ideal for grinding operations.

Currently available in:

  • 14.5oz Cartridge Solid
  • 1.6oz Push Tube Solid
