Lubricut 5000 Metalworking Fluid

August 13, 2013

Lubricut 5000 from Chemtool Inc. is a uniquely formulated metalworking fluid based upon synthetic technologies for utilization as a mist or near dry machining lubricant for all metals. Lubricut 5000 is non-water-miscible.

Lubricut 5000 is particularly well-suited for cut-off operations where fluid misting/ near dry lubricants are utilized. The lubrication properties of Lubricut 5000 allows for extended tool and cut-off blade life while depositing only a minimal residual film, according to the company.

Lubricut 5000 is particularly effective as a saw lube for aluminum billets and extrusions for both cast and regular aluminum alloys as well as most non-ferrous metals. Lubricut 5000 exhibits low-mist properties and a low V.O.C. value of only 4.7 grams/liter making it a highly compatible product for environmental compliance and extremely safe working conditions.

Product benefits include:

Outstanding lubrication based upon blend of synthetic esters and high molecular weight polymers

Contains no chlorine, phosphorus, boron nor zinc

Contains balanced nonferrous corrosion inhibitor

Low odor and transparent appearance for worker acceptance

Low viscosity ideal for misting/near dry applications

High flash point and low-mist/smoking characteristics

Low V.O.C. value of only 4.7 grams/liter

Effective selection for the machining of both general and automotive alloys, both ferrous and nonferrous

Copper corrosion rating of 1b via ASTM D130

High oxidative stability

High viscosity index

Excellent micro-tap lubrication results on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals with form taps

Related Glossary Terms

  • alloys


    Substances having metallic properties and being composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is a metal.

  • aluminum alloys

    aluminum alloys

    Aluminum containing specified quantities of alloying elements added to obtain the necessary mechanical and physical properties. Aluminum alloys are divided into two categories: wrought compositions and casting compositions. Some compositions may contain up to 10 alloying elements, but only one or two are the main alloying elements, such as copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, zinc or tin.

  • flash


    Thin web or film of metal on a casting that occurs at die partings and around air vents and movable cores. This excess metal is due to necessary working and operating clearances in a die. Flash also is the excess material squeezed out of the cavity as a compression mold closes or as pressure is applied to the cavity.

  • metalworking


    Any manufacturing process in which metal is processed or machined such that the workpiece is given a new shape. Broadly defined, the term includes processes such as design and layout, heat-treating, material handling and inspection.

  • sawing machine ( saw)

    sawing machine ( saw)

    Machine designed to use a serrated-tooth blade to cut metal or other material. Comes in a wide variety of styles but takes one of four basic forms: hacksaw (a simple, rugged machine that uses a reciprocating motion to part metal or other material); cold or circular saw (powers a circular blade that cuts structural materials); bandsaw (runs an endless band; the two basic types are cutoff and contour band machines, which cut intricate contours and shapes); and abrasive cutoff saw (similar in appearance to the cold saw, but uses an abrasive disc that rotates at high speeds rather than a blade with serrated teeth).
