FS2603 is a high performance general-purpose biostable emulsion type cutting fluid concentrate designed for more arduous machining operations including CNC reaming, drilling and tapping.
Features & Benefits:
• Suitable for a wide range of materials
• Long sump life
• Excellent rancidity control
• Excellent corrosion control
• Permits higher cutting speeds
• Stable in harder water areas
• Advanced design giving good lubrication
• Low foaming / Low misting • EP additives reduce tool wear
• Clean and pleasant to use
• Offers versatility for mixed machining operations, can replace neat oils
• Triazine free
FS2603 has been specifically designed with a blend of surface active and hydrodynamic lubrication additives and can be used on ferrous, non-ferrous, and materials such as stainless steels and nimonic alloys.
FS2603 is capable of replacing the use of neat oils in multi-spindle and automatic machining centres where machine design permits the use of water based fluids. Long sump life can be expected due to the modern bio-stability chemistry. Machining applications range from light duty grinding to high speed CNC milling and turning, concentrations will be variable dependant on severity of application.
Recommended Starting Concentrations:
Grinding 3 - 5%
Light to Medium Duty Machining 4 - 6%
Medium to Heavy Duty Machining 6 - 8%
Extremely Heavy Applications or as a replacement for neat oils 8 - 12%
Top up Concentrations should always be made with a diluted mix of concentrate and water to maintain the recommended strength in the machine.
To check and maintain concentration a refractometer is recommended, the resulting reading multiplied by a factor of 1.4 will give concentration strength.
