NuSol Alumax 90 Machining Fluid

November 13, 2012

Chemtool Inc.'s NuSol ALUMAX 90 is formulated for today's competitive manufacturing environment, which demands one fluid for all machining operations. This incorporates all metals including all non-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 90 is formulated using a blend of unique preformed emulsions that possess a very small particle size that demonstrates outstanding boundary lubrication (average particle size of one┬Ám). 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 non-ferrous and aluminum alloys.

NuSol ALUMAX 90 preformed emulsions are further complemented with the presence of a balanced surfactant package that offers enhanced boundary lubrication and 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 90 featured benefits:

  • Hybrid fluid technology
  • Chlorine and sulfur free
  • Balanced lubrication regime based upon blend of high molecular weight petroleum hydrocarbon pre-formed emulsions and synthetic esters
  • Excellent microtap lubrication numbers (16-20 percent improvements in tapping efficiencies versus conventional soluble oils or semi-synthetics)
  • Excellent lubrication on tough 300 series aluminum alloys with both cut and form taps
  • Extremely small particle size for superior wetting and coverage on all metals
  • Good corrosion protection on all metals
  • Low foaming use emulsions: hard water resistant to soap formation
  • Outstanding resistance to microbial attack
  • NuSol ALUMAX 90 (Product Code 27023M0000) is available in a number of packaging options.

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.

  • tapping


    Machining operation in which a tap, with teeth on its periphery, cuts internal threads in a predrilled hole having a smaller diameter than the tap diameter. Threads are formed by a combined rotary and axial-relative motion between tap and workpiece. See tap.
