JTM Products, Inc. (Solon, OH) has announced a new line of full synthetic metalworking coolants. SynMAX coolants benefit from a radically different chemistry to exceed the performance of semi-synthetic fluids but without oil and without the historical drawback of past generations of synthetics. The result for operators is maximized machining output yielding more parts per hour while machining steel, aluminum and difficult-to-machine alloys. SynMAX coolants are formulated to cut aluminum as efficiently as steel, making them an ideal choice for multi-metal shops. Benefits include:
- The elimination of staining of sensitive metals, as well as surface and vapor phase corrosion. Parts and machine tools remain clean, with a light oil- like film to lubricate surfaces.
- An excellent choice for through-the-tool coolant delivery, for difficult-to-machine alloys (such as in medical or aerospace applications), and wherever precision tolerance and high finishes are required.
- An exceptionally well-suited formulation for when cycle time improvement is needed or when tool life improvement is desired.
- A unique BioArmor Technology that delivers built-in resistance to bacterial growth, without bactericides. They enjoy exceptionally long sump life, while eliminating the stench.
Three SynMAX coolants are available. All meet Boeing BAC 5008 Revision U for steel, aluminum and titanium and are REACH compliant.
