There are many rust preventives, penetrating oils, and lubricants on the market today. As their names suggest, they are used to loosen bolts and other rusted metal parts while also providing rust protection to help prevent parts from future seizing. A lot of these formulations are built from the same basic chemicals and have been used for many years in auto shops, machine shops, and in any home garage with very little change in the product make-up. However, the demands on these fluids in more industrial settings require increased performance and some companies have introduced newer formulations to the market specifically made for machine shop and factory applications by providing a superior combination of:

Metalworking fluids are engineered for a variety of lubrication and cooling operations. Since there are many combinations it is imperative to first select the correct fluid for the application. When cutting metal from the workpiece, one of the considerations in selecting a fluid is the cutting speed. Lower speeds demand a fluid that serves as a lubricant to prevent friction-induced wear, galling and chatter. Each of these can cause reduced tool life and scrap parts.
