Selection Chart Neat Cutting Oil easy look up Data

Midcut 2129 is an extreme pressure low viscosity oil developed for use on steel and non-ferrous alloy metals in a wide range of high pressure and performance machining applications. The product is designed for severe duty general machining and grinding including deep hole boring, drilling, heavy duty turning, milling and gear manufacturing of ferrous and non ferrous materials.

Midcut 2129 is based on synthetic base oils and advanced synthetic esters combined with high performance inactive sulphur EP and lubricity additives. The product also contains anti-oxidant additives to extend the life of this high performance neat cutting oil.

Midcut 2129 can will give a number of benefits when machining particularly difficult materials e.g. Copper and Brass on sliding head machine tools, (Star, Citizen, Index). Due to the products low viscosity reduced drag out and therefore consumption can be greatly reduced without compromising on machining performance. In addition to those benefits described the machine speeds and feeds can be increased which reduces the time taken to complete production runs – which frees machine time to increase machining capacity. Midcut 2129 can be used for all forms of grinding, is suitable for use as a lubricating oil where a viscosity grade of ISO 12 is acceptable.
