Stable Semi-Synthetic Metal Cutting Fluids Resist Bacteria and Foaming

May 5, 2009

Henkel Corporation has introduced two new water-soluble Multan metal removal lubricants formulated to generate minimal foam and be used continuously for years with minimal biological degradation.  Users of traditional metal cutting fluids often experience problems with foam buildup and bacteria growth.  Excessive foam causes lubricant overflow and waste while bacteria growth generates odors, degrades the lubricant, and can cause operator health and safety concerns.  

Both Multan B 236 and B 414 are semi-synthetic metal removal fluids for machining and grinding ferrous and non-ferrous alloys.  These lubricants are designed for applications where soft water or process requirements make foam control difficult.  These fluids provide superb wetting characteristics to maintain equipment, tooling and part cleanliness.
