Rio Grande 2014 Tools and Equipment Catalog - page 311

Often copied but never equalled in either
performance or benefits, Bur-Life® is the best
available lubricant for jewelry applications.
Like a coating of
microscopic ball bearings!
Bur-Life® provides a smoother cut
with far less friction and more
control. Other lubricants are
repelled by heat and draw away
from the cutting edge. Bur-Life is
attracted by heat, so the friction
and resulting heat produced by
saw blades, burs, files and other
cutting tools actually draw
Bur-Life to the point of contact,
resulting in a better finish. With
Bur-Life, your tools work faster,
stay sharper and last longer.
Choose from three formulas:
Original:
Stick or bench-mount cartridges
Paste:
Specially formulated for tasks where
surfaces require a complete coating
Liquid:
Penetrates to lubricate; for complex
or porous surfaces that may be hard to coat
All made exclusively for Rio Grande in the USA!
Just a few of the many uses for Bur-Life®:
For burs:
Increases precision in drilling and
grinding and reduces chatter; its low viscosity
and friction-reducing characteristics even
lengthen the life of your burs. For best results,
coat your bur about every 30 seconds.
Best formula: any.
For files:
Keeps files cutting clean and increases
their cutting life by reducing wear on file surfaces.
Best formula: stick.
For gravers:
Wipe your gravers every few cuts;
you’ll get smooth, bright cuts, friction will be
reduced and your gravers will stay sharper
longer. Try it on your sharpening stone, too.
Best formula: liquid.
For drawing wire:
Apply to both wire and
drawplate to make drawing wire nearly effortless.
Best formula: liquid.
For saw blades:
Reduces drag and binding during
cutting. Blades cut smoother, resist breaking and
last up to twice as long.
Best formula: stick, original.
For wheel dressing:
This ideal wheel dressing
provides superior lubrication even under
tremendous friction. Abrasive wheels cut
smoother and faster.
Best formula: stick.
For stamping, disc cutting and tap & die
operations:
Coats surfaces completely for efficient
stamping; makes cutting threads quick and easy.
Best formula: any.
For grinding wheels and abrasive belts:
Keeps
wheels running cool; flushes off debris and
cutting/grinding residue.
Best formula: stick.
For diamond drills:
An excellent cooling bath!
Dip diamond burs and drills periodically to keep
them cool while working.
Best formula: liquid.

When drawing wire,
apply liquid Bur-Life® to
both the hole and the
wire. See how little effort
is required to reduce wire
lubricated with Bur-Life.
Keep Bur-Life® readily
available at your bench.
Just attach the base to
the edge of your bench . . .
Stick Bur-Life® coats
burs for effective cutting
and elimination of bur
chatter.
. . . then clip a Bur-Life®
bench cartridge in place.
Use the sturdy
portable base with
bench-mount
Bur-Life®. The
concave base
catches shavings
to reduce messes.
Bur-Life® Counts
in Manufacturing Operations
“B.A. Ballou & Co. has been using Bur-Life®
for many years. Bur-Life adds substantial life
to saw blades and subsequently helps to keep
our cost of manufacturing down. I highly
recommend Bur-Life for saw lubrication.”
