High Performance Semi-Synthetic with EP

Q-CUT 246C is a high oil-containing semi-synthetic for machining and grinding ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This product utilizes state of the art raw materials to eliminate the rancidity and cleanliness issues associated with most soluble oils and semi-synthetics. The product is designed for use on a wide range of metals, making it well suited for job shop operations. Q-CUT 246C is non-staining to sensitive aerospace alloys, aluminum (including 319, 356, 6061T-6, 7075), and yellow metals. The product also has excellent corrosion control for ferrous metals. Q-CUT 246C contains an extreme pressure additive to improve tool life and part quality in difficult applications. The fluid has a tight emulsion to promote tramp oil rejection and exhibits excellent hard water stability up to 35 grains of hardness. Q-CUT 246C runs clean, has excellent bioresistance, and is non-foaming.
