Metalworking Fluids that Work for You!

Are you looking for a metalworking fluid that’s safe for your workers?

 

Do you constantly shop around for environmentally safe products?

 

Is your company trying to decrease its carbon footprint? 

 

Stop shopping around and see what MetPro has to offer! We have developed a wide range of metalworking fluids that are not only safe for workers, but they’re also environmentally friendly and biodegradable! These VCI protective liquids are considered green and can be used from manufacturing right through to storage.

 

What could be better than that?

 

Our extensive range of Metalworking fluids is utilized worldwide in the metal industry, from the automotive industry to heavy plant machinery and equipment and everywhere in between. These products are utilized especially during the production of metals to provide lubrication and cooling, but can also assist in the removal of debris. Our Metalworking fluids can also be utilized to enhance your equipment’s performance and improve the shelf life of cutting tools. 

 

MetPro’s Metalworking fluids are so versatile they can even be applied by various application methods such as continuous jet, spray and a hand dispenser! 

 

Metalworking Fluids

SyntheCut FS/FS-AL

 

MetPro’s SyntheCut FS/FS-AL can be diluted in water with agitation. This metalworking fluid will not form a cream or inverse emulsion, as is the case with soluble oils. 

 

SyntheCut FS/FS-AL has been specifically designed to protect ferrous and aluminium metals after the forming process so that there’s no need to oil or degrease.

Dilution: 3-10% depending on severity of operation and material being worked.  

 

SyntheCool GF

 

MetPro’s SyntheCool GF is a metalworking fluid that can be utilized wherever there’s a need for a highly effective lubricant for grinding metal parts. SyntheCool GF can be used at high dilutions in water which results in excellent cooling, improved visibility of the work piece and rapid settling of fines with consequent excellent cost effectiveness.

 

Dilution: 2 – 5 % depending on roughness of grinding, suggested point to start 3%.

 

Washing/Cleaning Liquids

CorroClean LP

 

MetPro’s CorroClean LP is best applied using conventional spray equipment, but it can also be used as a dip. MetPro’s CorroClean LP can be used to clean metal parts or equipment while also giving highly effective corrosion protection.

 

Dilution: 3 – 5 % in tap water, depending on the surface condition before cleaning. 

Higher % for cleaning possible if rinsing is involved (that one should be done with low %).

 

CorroClean PSW

 

MetPro’s CorroClean PSW’s main application is used in high pressure systems because of it’s non foaming characteristic. It has excellent cleaning properties and should always be used in combination with one of our CorroTect range products and/or VCI protective packaging.

 

Dilution: 3 – 5 % in tap water depending on the surface condition before cleaning. 

Higher % for cleaning possible if rinsing is involved (that one should be done with low %).

 

The main advantages of using MetPro’s CorroClean products include:

 

  • No longer need to oil or grease components
  • Free of hazardous contents, such as sodium hydroxide
  • Application by spraying systems and immersion baths
  • Application by brush as well as by roller
  • Long term corrosion protection if parts are properly stored after cleaning
 

Protective Coatings

CorroTect 56 

 

MetPro’s CorroTect 56 combines VCI and contact corrosion inhibitors in a water based solution which makes it safer and more ecologically friendly than oils & greases. Because CorroTect 56 is diluted in water,  it has a unique characteristic of leaving a thin protective coating that dries quickly. It usually doesn’t need to be removed before painting before other surface treatments are performed.

 

Dilution: 10 – 12% in tap water, starting with 10 as trial.

 

CorroTect 5HC

 

MetPro’s CorroTect 5HC is not a normal rust prevention coating. CorroTect 5HC is water-based and contains no oil, solvents or other harmful materials, but it does leave a harder coating. It should be removed in case of painting with mild alkaline cleaner.

 

Dilution: 10 – 30% in tap water, depending on protection required. This has to be evaluated individually as the coating is hard and can provide sufficient protection as standalone barrier.

 

CorroTect OAM

 

MetPro’s CorroTect OAM is an Oil additive for VCI protection of internal spaces like gearboxes, axles, oil and fuel tanks etc. Instead of transportation with oil or fuel they can add OAM and decrease the amount of filling from typical 70% to 5 - 10% only. It has a multi-metal protection ability which includes all yellow metals.

 

Dilution rate:   5% of the product is supplied as an oil base. Then use this diluted product at 5% - 10% of volume of article to be protected.

 

CorroTect WS

 

MetPro’s CorroTect WS is a coating which creates a thin plastic film on the surface of the metal that it’s protecting. It dries to a thin film coating that’s between 3 – 5 microns, therefore it creates an excellent barrier for an external environment and contains contact and vapor inhibitors to protect the treated surface. The film can be physically removed and washed with a water based cleaner or water itself.

 

Dilution: This depends on thickness of the requested layer. 

 

Below is a summary of MetPro’s Metalworking Fluids and their Applications:

 
Liquid Application Mixing Ratio Effect
Liquid: SyntheCut FS Application: Drilling, Milling, Turning, Sawing Mixing Ratio: 3%-10% Effect: Cools the cutting, lubrication, washing the chips, short-term corrosion protection.
Liquid: SyntheCool GF Application: Grinding Mixing Ratio: 2-3% Effect: Cools the cutting, lubrication, washing the chips, short-term corrosion protection.
Liquid: CorroClean PSW Application: High-pressure Cleaning Mixing Ratio: 3-5% Effect: Clean surfaces, removes oils and previously applied liquids, middle corrosion protection
Liquid: CorroClean LP Application: Immersion Cleaning Mixing Ratio: 3-5% Effect: Clean surfaces, removes oils and previously applied liquids, middle corrosion protection
Liquid: CorroTect 56 Application: Long-Term Protection Mixing Ratio: 10-12% Effect: Protects the surface from corrosion, forms a thin film on the surface with further processing can be left on surface (welding, painting).
Liquid: CorroTect OAM Application: Long-Term Protection Mixing Ratio: 5% typically Effect: Protects the internal spaces such as gear boxes or fuel tanks.
Liquid: CorroTect WS Application: Long-Term Protection Mixing Ratio: Usually neat Effect: Ideal replacement coating for highly polished steel coils.
Liquid: CorroTect 5HC Application: Long-Term Protection Mixing Ratio: 10-30% Effect: Protects the surface from corrosion, forms a thin film on the surface must be removed for further processing of surface.
