The cost of tooling is 10X the cost of the actual fluid, so it’s important to choose the right fluid and maximize your spend where it counts - production. BONDERITE® L-MR cutting fluids are fully formulated to provide excellent lubrication, bio-resistance and detergency, and eliminate the need for costly tank-side additives. The BONDERITE® L-MR cutting fluids product line has lubrication solutions for a wide range of machining operations, including cylindrical grinding, drilling, milling, broaching, thread-cutting, thread-milling and turning. In addition, the BONDERITE® L-MR cutting fluids product line can be used on a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including steel, carbon steel, cast iron and aluminum. These metalworking fluids are available as cutting oils aka straight oils, and in water-based forms including soluble oils aka emulsifiable oils, semi-synthetic fluids, and synthetic fluids for better cooling performance.
Why Use BONDERITE® Cutting Fluids?
High lubricity to lubricate and protect the work piece, prevent tool wear, and improve tool life
Bio-resistant technology which eliminates the need for tank-side biocides and prevents Monday morning odors
Detergency to maintain cleanliness of the machine and workpiece
Cooling of the tool and workpiece to extend tool life and keep the metal part thermally stable
Excellent tramp oil rejection for easy removal and to increase lubricant longevity
Reduce overall process cost by eliminating costly tank-side additives, reducing scrap, improving tool life and extending solution life
Grades available for use on various metal substrates (aluminum, cast iron, steel alloys, and non-ferrous metal)
Synthetic, oil rejecting fluid recommended for light duty machining of ferrous & non-ferrous metal alloys.
Machine Tools: Keep It Clean
Along with cooling down the tool, Henkel BONDERITE® coolants are formulated with a high level of detergency so that the fluid keeps the cutting tool, workpiece, magazine, and arbor clean. The continuous cleaning action these fluids provide prevents residue build-up that can result in performance problems and blind machine windows. The photos below were taken after running Falex Pin & Vee and tap-torque testing on the BONDERITE® L-MR fluids against a competitive lubricant. These tests measure lubrication characteristics against competitive products to gauge performance. One benefit that becomes clear during testing is the BONDERITE® L-MR cutting fluid‘s detergency resulting in a much cleaner bath and machine. Learn more about the case study here.
