Product Description

NuSOL® Alumax 96 is a completely new technology for the machining of ferrous metals and exotic alloys. NuSOL Alumax 96 is formulated for today’s competitive manufacturing environment which demands one fluid for all machining operations. This incorporates all metals including all standard ferrous and aluminum alloys and tough exotic ferrous alloys. Lubrication performance is elevated by the presence of a hydrolytic additive which upgrades the thermal stability and oxidation resistance of the fluid during the lubrication process. NuSOL Alumax 96 is manufactured using a proprietary blending process that incorporates into the product many unique characteristics that will promote high productivity rates and minimal downtime for the end user.

NuSOL Alumax 96 is formulated using a blend of unique PAG (Polyalkylene  Glycol) preformed emulsions that possess a very small particle size that demonstrates outstanding boundary lubrication (average particle size of  one micron). This small particle size provides for 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 ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. NuSOL Alumax 96 preformed emulsions are further complemented with the presence of a balanced surfactant package that offers enhanced boundary lubrication, wetting fluid detergency and cleanliness. Additional additives formulated into the product provide supreme detergency and machine surface cleanliness as well as tough resistance to hard water soap formation. NuSol Alumax 96 represents the culmination of the NuSOL Alumax product line.
