New "Cool 3" cutting fluid maximizes efficiency and reduces workplace pollution

Cool 3 cutting fluid from Buehler, an ITW Company located in Düsseldorf, Germany, promises to maximize efficiency and reduce workplace pollution in materials and production. The cutting fluid, with its new water-soluble formula, reportedly ensures the efficient removal of heat and particles, and provides high environmental compatibility for sectoring of metals, plastics and ceramics.

buehler300.jpgTesting by Buehler-ITW Text & Measurement GmbH, is said to show that Cool 3 meets the demand for an efficient, eco-friendly coolant/lubricant for use in machine tool production cutting. It removes heat, abrasion residue and chips quickly and efficiently from the cutting surface.

The transparent, high-performance cutting fluid features a novel boron-free formula without mineral and synthetic oils, and has a pleasant smell, which avoids negative impact on the health and well-being of laboratory and production staff, the company states.

At a recommended concentration of 4 to 8% in water, Cool 3 is suited for all milling and grinding tasks encountered in machine shop environments and for a range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics and composite materials. Cool 3's high stability offers a long useful life in recirculating cooling systems, thus reducing costs. The coolant/lubricant prevents corrosion and helps to maintain chuck quality without leaving a sticky residue.

Cool 3 is available in 1- and 10-L containers and is compatible with all abrasive wheels used on cutters from the AbrasiMet, AbrasiMatic and Delta series, as well as the IsoMet and PetroThin precision cutters and with the new PlanarMet 300 bench-top planar grinding machine.

Additionally, Cool 3 is suitable for use with other Buehler products used in sample preparation, such as AddiCool, an additive specifically designed to prevent galvanic corrosion of non-ferrous metals, or the anti-bacterial system cleaner RediClean. Third-party instruments may also benefit from the advantages offered by Cool 3.
