Metalworking coolant features ecofriendly chemistry

April 2, 2012

Chemetall has introduced Tech Cool® 35052CF semisynthetic metalworking coolant. According to the manufacturer, the coolant combines the ultrahigh lubricity characteristics required for aerospace and medical device alloys with green chemistry technologies.

The product — which contains no chlorinated or sulfur-based EP additives, bactericides, DCHA, secondary amines, or formaldehyde-releasing compounds — provides emulsion stability, outstanding sump life without odors, extended tool life, low foam levels, corrosion resistance, and lower operational costs, the company states.

The coolant is suitable for use on titanium, high-nickel alloys, stainless steels, aluminum, brass, and ferrous substrates. It is very low foaming, without the use of silicone defoamers, and can be used in high-pressure, high-speed systems, even in low-hardness water.
