During metal machining process, large amount of heat is produced due to friction. The produced heat should be carried away by some means to protect the tool and work. The material used to optimise the process of metalworking are called metalworking fluids also called as Cutting Oils. These fluids act as a protective layer that forms a cushion between the work piece and the tool that helps in reducing friction and resultant wear and tear.

Here are some of the benefits of using a high-performance metal working cutting oils

  • Lubrication at low cutting speeds
  • Cooling at high cutting speeds
  • Chip removal of the cutting zone
  • Protect the machine tool against corrosion.
  • Improved quality of work piece

Soluble Cutting Oils

Soluble Cutting Oils plays a vital role in accelerating the production rate by enabling increased rate of metal removal and by reducing or eliminating
problems associated with severe and hazardous machine operation.


Soluble Cutting Oils are suitable for all metal and machinery operations where emulsifying oils are generally used for cooling. It is also recommended in turning, drilling, grinding boring and milling operation of ferrous and nonferrous metals. Typical mixing ratio is 1 : 40 to 1 : 20 oil/water. Concentration varies depending on the type of machining,
hardness of water and required corrosion protection.


  • Protection from rust and corrosion
  • Gentle to the hands of the operator and hence operator friendly
  • Forms stable emulsion in water upto 600 ppm hardness (CaCO3)
  • Good flushing action
  • Does not decompose and retain physical properties
  • Contain excellent bio-resistance properties leading to a long sump life
  • Nitrite, silicone, phenol, chlorine and heavy metal free
  • Produces outstanding finish surfaces
