A new metalworking fluid type has entered the coolant market: meet the hybrid semi-synthetic! These products break the mold and push past performance boundaries experienced with traditional coolants by providing extraordinary lubricity and flawless surface finishes. They truly bridge the gap between traditional synthetic and semi-synthetic metalworking fluids delivering the perfect balance of lubrication and cooling like no other fluid-type on the market today.
Before these new products were available we relied on fluids that range from 100% oil based to 95-100% water. On their own, they primarily serve two applications:
- Oil offers lubrication
- Water offers cooling
Yet more often than not, the right combination of the two can provide the ideal performance balance for a range of metals and machining processes.
