Neat cutting Oils

In an era of ever-increasing speeds and loads and problem of mist & evaporation control, conventional mineral base oils are being replaced by superior refined base oils with higher saturated hydrocarbons & reduced sulphur contents.

HAKUFORM Neat oil cutting technology embodies usage of Hydro Cracked Group II base oils which provides the basis of its superior anti-oxidation properties combined with chlorine free Extreme Pressure & Anti-wear additives in one single extraordinary process. Group II base oils are refined using a hydro-processing method known as "hydrotreating" that reduces its sulphur content.

Due to inherent benefits of this most European machine manufacturers have approved the use of these oils in their machines

Water Soluble cutting Fluids

HSE has always been a prime focus in Metal working industry. Over the years metalworking fluids have been one of constant changing chemistries. As new worker-safety rules that limit particulates, chlorinated paraffins, and exposure levels have taken effect, lubricant providers have had to significantly modify formulations.

HAKUFORM water soluble fluids makes use of Kluthe's Advanced Surfactant Technology, BIOLIT technology and chlorine free proprietary ester based EP additives which are tuned to the different processes and types of metal.

"Microemulsions" formed by HAKUFORM Water soluble cutting fluids form significantly smaller oil particle sizes compared to conventional mineral-soluble oil macro emulsions. These 'micro-emulsions', visually appear to be translucent, or even transparent and have inherent advantages of providing clean appearance, excellent corrosion protection, long life of cutting fluid, outstanding cooling capabilities, good wetting properties, emulsion stability. Additionally, speeds and feeds can be stepped up and better size control obtained. The BIOLIT technology is designed to increase sump life through slow release of buffer bio stability and provide better skin friendliness.

The usage of these technologies usually results in cutting-tool life improvements by 1.2 to 4 times, cutting parameters intensifying by 20 to 60% and productivity increase by 10 to 50%.
