TRIM MicroSol 455 Low-Foam Semisynthetic, Microemulsion Coolant

Master Fluid Solutions announces TRIM MicroSol 455, a low-foam semisynthetic, microemulsion coolant that is optimized for the high-volume cast iron, ferrous and some aluminum and nonferrous metalworking operations. MicroSol 455 prevents leaching of elemental iron and eliminates clinkering and oxidation of ferrous microfines.

“Customers switching to MicroSol 455 will see lower cost of operations due to its machining performance and long sump life”, said Ahmed Tahir, global vice president of strategy and marketing. “In addition, MicroSol 455 represents a new generation of products designed to reduce regulatory compliance burden for our global customers with its compliance to all major registries."

“Our customers who regularly machine high volumes of cast iron will be particularly excited about MicroSol 455 because in addition to its superior performance, it also provides extended sump life delivering benefits to the bottom line. And with our special introductory pricing, it is an especially cost-effective solution for our customers,” stated Rob Dodson, product manager, Master Fluid Solutions.

 MicroSol 455 also provides superior corrosion inhibition on cast iron and eliminates “hot chips” and clinkering problems. Additionally, it keeps machines clean while leaving a soft fluid film for ease of cleaning and reduced maintenance. MicroSol 455 requires no special disposal or recycling.

Related Glossary Terms

  • coolant


    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.

  • 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.
