AF Sawing Fluids are Clean, safe, effective sawing fluids and lubricants for increased tool life and lower maintenance expenses.
Metal cutting operations generate Heat due to tool friction and energy lost deforming the material. The surrounding air is a poor coolant for the cutting tool because it conducts heat poorly and has low thermal conductivity. Ambient-air cooling is adequate for light cuts and low duty cycles typical of maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) or hobbyist work. However, production work requires heavy cutting over long time periods and typically produces more heat than air cooling can remove. Rather than pausing production while the tool cools, using liquid coolant removes significantly more heat more rapidly, and can also speed cutting and reduce friction and tool wear..
