The best coolants can deliver reduced maintenance requirements by resisting biological attack, helping to extend batch life. Ease of maintenance must also be balanced with good machining performance, while also protecting the machine tools and work pieces from corrosion and sticky deposits. In addition, the fluids should meet the latest health and safety regulations and be easy to monitor and maintain while in service.

Collectively, these properties will help deliver long service life, excellent cutting performance and reduced maintenance downtime.
