JTM Products recently launched a new line of synthetic metalworking fluids for machining steel, aluminum and other difficult-to-machine alloys.
SynMAX coolants are designed to exceed the performance of semi-synthetic fluids but without oil. The fluids employ a unique BioArmor technology to deliver built-in resistance to bacterial growth without bactericides. In addition to a long sump life, they can eliminate staining of sensitive metals as well as surface and vapor-phase corrosion.
Formulated to cut aluminum as efficiently as steel, the coolants are well-suited for multi-metal shops. They are also ideal when cycle time and tool life improvements are needed, or wherever precision tolerance and high finishes are required.
Three SynMAX coolants are available: 2505 for moderate machining, 2515 for heavy-duty machining and 2525 for severe duty. All meet the Boeing BAC 5008 Revision U for steel, aluminum and titanium, and are compliant with the European Union's Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.
"SynMAX coolants will change the way the market thinks about synthetics," said Jennifer Lunn, JTM Products' senior chemist. "Our field trials have proven that a full synthetic – containing 0 percent mineral oil – can be used to replace a high oil product without sacrificing lubrication. In fact, lubrication is improved."
