ECOCOOL GLOBAL 20

The culmination of years of intensive research and development and recipient of multiple patents, FUCHS ECOCOOL GLOBAL 20 represents a milestone in metalworking fluid design. The solution allows automotive OEMs and suppliers for the first time to use a single metal cutting fluid for the manufacture of components from engine blocks, pistons and brake systems to wheels, gears and driveline components.


FUCHS ECOCOOL GLOBAL 20 has been designed to meet the varied requirements of different OEM and supplier stakeholders, including leaders responsible for the safe, efficient running of production facilities and equipment.

Development Highlights

  • Free of current and future restricted chemicals including boron, secondary amines, formaldehyde release biocides, chlorine, and TEA

  • Meets the national chemical inventory requirements of the top industrialized countries

  • Effective on multiple metals and across a wide range of water sources

  • Certified non-irritating properties enhance workplace environment

  • Near odorless characteristics increase operator acceptance

  • Available globally

Watch Global 20 In Action

LOW RESIDUE

ECOCOOL GLOBAL 20 is mixed with water and baked in an oven for 24 hours. Dried residue washes away completely in less than 60 seconds with gentle rinsing.

RESISTANCE TO FOAM

Tired of foam? It certainly is a poor lubricant and doesn't transfer heat very well! ECOCOOL GLOBAL 20 foams up to 56% less than three leading industry coolants.​

HIGH EASE OF MIXING

Mixes easily when making manual tank-side additions.

HIGH LUBRICITY

Formulated for use on multiple metals and designed to increase your productivity, tool life and enhance part finish.
