Products can vary in residual film, thickness, length of protection and flash points.
Today, a modern cooling lubricant or metal forming lubricant is subjected to a variety of demands. Cooling lubricants for metalworking must be effective, economical, and free from ingredients that are harmful to health and the environment. In the process chains that follow metalworking, customized cleaning agent solutions and process-compatible and reliable corrosion preventatives play a decisive role when it comes to production reliability and product quality. Offers a comprehensive range of highly effective lubricants, but also possesses the process expertise needed to ideally meet the specific requirements in the field of metalworking.
Grease & Lubricants produces high quality oils for use in all types of metalworking operations such as tapping, drilling, heading, stamping, cutting, gear hobbing, rolling, quenching, grinding, etc., and in all methods of lubricant application such as, brush on, flood, spray, and micro-drop. Our line of metalworking lubricants is formulated using high quality petroleum base stocks with the addition of EP additives, fatty compounds, etc. to provide excellent tool life and finishes. Other components can also be added, imparting anti welding characteristics, anti-foaming or anti-misting properties. By blending products with varying viscosities, Petromax metalworking oils can achieve maximum heat dissipation and simultaneously superior metalworking performance resulting in higher speeds and feeds.
Vegetable-based metalworking fluids are now being utilized to replace mineral oil- based products in some applications exhibiting superior finishes, tool life, etc. Some of our products are formulated without chlorine to provide comparable tool life to chlorine based cutting fluids even on difficult to machine metals and stainless steels. The product line also includes additives to boost existing metalworking oils, ease removability, lessen misting, lighten color and foaming and many other attributes to maximize results and improve employee acceptance. Many of our metalworking products have been custom designed to fulfill a specific customer need allowing them to compete in today’s global economy.
