Product Description

NuSOL® Alumax 87 is a chlorinated semi-synthetic metalworking fluid used for the machining of non-ferrous metals and exotic alloys. NuSOL Alumax 87 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 87 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 87 is formulated using a blend of unique preformed emulsions that possess a very small particle size, which demonstrate outstanding hydrodynamic lubrication for high-speed machining. 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 87 preformed emulsions are further complemented with synthetic boundary lubricant agents, which offer enhanced wetting, film strength, and balanced lubrication. NuSOL Alumax 87 also contains preformed chlorinated emulsion for additional lubrication demands.
