Product Description

NuSOL® Alumax is a non-chlorinated technology for the machining of non-ferrous metals and exotic alloys. NuSOL Alumax is formulated for all machining operations on all metals but is specifically designed to machine today's tougher non-ferrous and aluminum alloys. NuSOL Alumax is manufactured using a proprietary blending process that incorporates many unique characteristics into the product that will promote high productivity rates and minimal downtime for the end user.

NuSOL Alumax is formulated using a blend of unique preformed emulsions that possess a very small particle size and which demonstrate outstanding boundary lubrication. This small particle size provides a very durable and uniform lubricant film, enhanced wetting and coverage, a very clean running fluid, and exceptional hard water stability for enhanced machining performance on non-ferrous and aluminum alloys. NuSOL Alumax preformed emulsions are further complemented with the presence of a surfactant package, offering enhanced boundary lubrication and fluid detergency and cleanliness.

Featured Benefits
  • Resistant to 'Monday Morning Odors.' The biostable chemistry maintains the pH eliminating objectionable odors
  • Excellent corrosion protection for all tooling, equipment, and parts
  • Exceptional lubricant film strength for increased tool life and finish on all metals
  • Extremely small particle size for superior wetting and coverage on all metals
  • Excellent hard water stability
  • High degree of cleanliness and no reportable VOCs for operator acceptance.
  • Halogen free
  • Excellent rejection of process oils and system contaminants
  • Low foaming
  • Excellent tolerance and micro-finish control at speed up to 10,000 RPM
  • Higher viscosity oils offer improved boundary lubrication without heavy oil content reducing coolant carry-off and providing a cleaner machine interior
  • High flash point oils eliminate mist and evaporation that reduces coolant cost and promotes a healthy work environment
  • Proven history of being operator safe
  • Tramp oil rejection eliminates a source for bacteria and rancid odors that reduces sump change outs, disposal costs, and machine downtime
  • Non-chlorinated
