Bactericide for Metal Cutting Fluids and Coolants

Product Description

Water dilutable soluble oil, semi-synthetic, and synthetic metal processing fluid systems are highly susceptible to the growth of bacteria.  Bacterial contamination can result in slime generation, gas formation, malodors and the reduction of drift of pH in the fluid concentrate and the working dilution.  This contamination can diminish fluid performance and system efficiency, which can increase costs, decrease tool life, reduce productivity and cause machine shut-down.  The use of Grotan, a proven high quality preservative to control biodeterioration, will help maintain product functionality and increase the life of the metal processing fluid.
