Semisynthetic Cutting & Grinding Fluids

Semisynthetic fluids contain a small amount of mineral oil plus some other additives to enhance lubricity. Semisynthetics are popular fluids as they combine cooling and lubricity of synthetic fluids with the better residue characteristics of emulsions. They will generally be used on the more difficult-to-machine materials.

 
TRIM® EP
High-lubricity Semisynthetic
TRIM® EP is a low oil, high-performance semichemical or semisynthetic product. While EP contains limited amounts of petroleum oil, it is a fully loaded semi using synthetic fats for wetting and lubricity, chlorine, and sulfur EP additives for BUE control. While EP is most often used in heavy-duty production band sawing and drilling operations, it has found extensive use in the production grinding of hardened steel and stainless steel parts.

  • Has the mechanical lubricity necessary to provide protection to blade handling systems on high performance band sawing machines as well as the cooling and antiweld additives to optimize blade life
  • A proven mixture of EP additives and wetting agents to optimize high-pressure operations including drilling and cylindrical form grinding on a variety of metals
  • Delivers superior tool life in spade and injector drilling operations
  • Has sufficient mechanical lubricity and wetting to protect the guides and rests in high volume centerless grinding
  • Offers particularly good performance when used in support of BZN grinding wheels in production grinding operations
  • Will keep machines very clean while leaving a fluid oily residue for ease of cleaning and reduced machine maintenance costs
