Bacteria and fungi are the enemy of metalworking fluids. For generations, chemists and lubricant technologists have been working to minimise their adverse effects on metalworking fluids. ROCOL have taken a new approach, developing a synergistic system of cutting fluid, slideway lubricant and tapping fluid. All 3 work together to maximise metalworking fluid life and performance. Where used in conjunction with a water mix cutting fluid, tapping fluid creates yet another source of contamination when it is washed from the tool and workpiece into the cutting fluid. In order to avoid providing an additional food source for bacteria and fungi, TRI-Logic RTD has been formulated using "biologically hard" raw materials. TRI-Logic RTD builds on the well established and market leading ROCOL technology, providing excellent tool life and surface finish. It is a tapping fluid that fortifies cutting fluid. Designed to emulsify into water mix cutting fluids, fortifying the extreme pressure cutting properties and enhancing tool life and surface finish, it is pleasant to use, low odour and light colour and is also water washable. Can be used directly or via automatic applicators in CNC machines.
