Gen-Lube 3010 is designed for use where a “vanishing oil” is required. 3010 is a premium quality, high performance, clear, low viscosity metal working fluid.

3010 evaporates readily leaving little or no residual oils for optimum cleanliness during metal working operation, while still providing excellent release properties.

3010’s prompt evaporation characteristics results in the manufacture of clean components, which will readily accept welds, allow for adhesion of paint to processed parts and leave virtually no residue to react with other processing chemicals.

3010 contains select additives to provide optimum lubricity during metal stamping and forming, resulting in extended die life. The product formulation obtains the important balance of proper lubrication during metalworking, yet “vanishes” from parts in minimal time to avoid delays in the manufacturing process, and minimizing the need for manual cleaning of components. 3010 is non-corrosive and non-staining to aluminum, copper, steel and their alloys.


3010 is designed primarily for use in light to moderate duty stamping and forming operations of aluminum, copper and other non-ferrous metals, while still finding application in some light duty operations with ferrous metals. Its unique ability to provide “thin film” lubrication, then evaporate quickly leaving no residue, makes 3010 an excellent choice for applications calling for the use of a “vanishing oil”. 3010 can be applied by spraying or roller coating. 3010 should always be used as received.
