Tube bending lubricant is an essential part of the tube bending process. Lubricant is used to lubricate the inside of the tube, the bending mandrels, the outside diameters, the inside radius of the tube, and the wiper die and reduce friction during the tube bending process.

Without the use of tube bending lubricants, the operator is risking a number of serious problems with the bending process.

Lubricants not only reduce friction during the bending process, they also decrease scrap material and extend the life of the tooling.
