ASTRO-CUT BCL LF
ASTRO-CUT BCL LF is a low foam heavy duty BIOSTABLE semi-synthetic general purpose metalworking coolant containing approximately 20% mineral oil. This product, when diluted with water, forms a translucent amber emulsion which offers excellent workpiece visibility, good lubricity, very low foaming and superior cooling. ASTRO-CUT BCL LF is designed for the machining and grinding of virtually all metals, except magnesium, and contains chlorine as an extreme pressure additive for greater lubricity.
ASTRO-CUT BCL LF is designed for use in metal removal operations such as all CNC milling, turning, drilling, tapping, and grinding. ASTRO-CUT BCL LF is also excellent on conventional machining processes and sawing applications.
|Milling, Drilling, Turning||5%||1:20||3.3|
|Centerless, ID, OD, Surface Grinding||4%||1:25||2.6|
|Tapping, Sawing, Reaming||10%||1:10||6.6|
When mixing coolant, it is best to use an automatic proportioner which accurately and thoroughly mixes coolant. To maintain recommended concentration, make-up or top-off should be added at one-half of the desired concentration. Never add concentrate directly to the machine; this could cause inverted emulsions.
