FUCHS Metal Cutting Lubricants – Ecocool & Ecocut

The term cutting fluid describes a medium whose principal functions during machining are cooling and lubrication. The primary objectives are to reduce friction between the tool and the material being machined as well as dissipating any thus created heat. Another role of the cutting fluid is to flush any chips or swarf away from the cutting zone.

Neat and water-miscible cutting fluids are formulated from low-aromatic mineral oils, white oils, synthetic oils or renewable synthetic esters. Selected additives such as corrosion protection agents, anti-misting agents, EP and AW additives, emulsifiers or wetting agents are used to improve the fluid’s characteristics in use.
