Cutting Compounds

What are the best cutting fluids?

The properties of a good cutting fluid are:

  • it should keep the work piece at a consistent temperature - extremely hot or alternating hot-and-cold should be avoided as it plays havoc wih tolerances meaning more quality control failures
  • it should provide excellent lubrication of the the cutting tool at the working edge, reducing tip welding, chattering and maximising tool life
  • it should be safe to use and environmentally friendly
  • a good cutting compound will also prevent rust on machined parts and tooling
