Cutting Lubricants

Maximize Efficiency and Prolong Equipment Life with the Right Cutting Lubricants

When it comes to metal cutting and machining, lubrication is essential for prolonging the life of your equipment and achieving a precise and accurate cut. Cutting lubricants, also known as coolants, are specially formulated to reduce friction and heat during the cutting process and are also used as a cleansing agent and remove dust near and inside the cutting area.

There are a variety of different cutting lubricants available, each with their own unique properties and applications. Some of the most common types include:

  • Oil-based lubricants: These lubricants are typically made from mineral or synthetic oils and are best suited for light to medium-duty cutting operations. They provide good lubrication and cooling but can be messy to work with and may require frequent changes.
  • Water-based lubricants: These lubricants are made from a mixture of water and a lubricating agent, such as a synthetic oil or emulsion. They are easy to clean up and are often used in heavy-duty cutting operations.
  • Semisynthetic lubricants: These lubricants are a combination of oil-based and water-based lubricants and provide a good balance of lubrication and cooling properties. They are often used in medium-duty cutting operations.
  • Synthetic lubricants: These lubricants are made from synthetic oils and offer superior lubrication and cooling properties. They are best suited for heavy-duty cutting operations.

It is important to select the right cutting lubricant for your specific application, taking into consideration the type of material being cut, the speed, tooling used, and the environment in which the cutting is taking place.
