Enhanced Cutting Fluid Formulations with Specialty Additives
Historically, conventional straight oils consisted of only oil or a mixture of oil and lard that didn’t last very long when used for machining metal. However, with current technology there is a wide selection of high performance oil soluble additives that help improve performance and prolong the life of these oil based cutting fluids. These enhanced cutting oils provide significantly better surface finish and increased life of the machine tool. This reduces scrap and the overall tool demand: increasing the return on investment of the machining process.
