TRIM C290 High Performance Synthetic Metalworking Fluid with Superior Corrosion Protection

Master Fluid Solutions® is proud to announce our new, high-performance metalworking fluid, optimized for the chemical, environmental, and machining requirements of general aluminum parts. Formulated to allow great, nonferrous corrosion prevention on most aluminum alloys, TRIM® C290 provides great results in a wide range of operations with its very low carryoff and long sump life resulting in low operating cost.

TRIM C290 is a high performance, easy to use and maintain metal removal fluid with very high levels of usable lubricity at the point-of-cut. "TRIM C290 is an exciting new addition to our metalworking fluid portfolio in North America,” says Justin Geach, Global Director of Marketing. “C290 is a multi-metal, clean running synthetic with excellent corrosion resistance to nonferrous materials, including aluminum. Its high lubricity, low pH formula allows for a wide application range of grinding and machining on ferrous and nonferrous materials, offering customers the benefits of a full synthetic with better machine and material compatibility over traditional synthetics.” 

TRIM C290 is water-clear, low-foaming, and low-misting, contains no chlorine, phenol, nitrites, copper, triazine, or silicone and is PRTR compliant, with no SARA 313 reportable chemistry. Easily removed from parts for quick cleanup before assembly, painting, or plating operations, TRIM C290 is truly a joy to work with and manage.

This latest addition to our synthetic fluids is available for sale throughout North America

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.

  • corrosion resistance

    corrosion resistance

    Ability of an alloy or material to withstand rust and corrosion. These are properties fostered by nickel and chromium in alloys such as stainless steel.

  • grinding


    Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.

  • lubricity


    Measure of the relative efficiency with which a cutting fluid or lubricant reduces friction between surfaces.

  • 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.
