Optimax 520

High Performance Neat Cutting Fluid

Optimax 520 is another technically advanced neat cutting and grinding fluid from the
Optimax range being formulated with the same advanced biodegradable ester to provide
enhanced polar lubrication that also includes extreme pressure additives to further improve
product performance. This novel technology has been designed specifically for use in arduous
metal cutting and grinding applications where fluid performance can achieve significant
improvements in tool life and surface finish where cost efficiencies are sought.

Optimax 520 is an oxidatively stable – high flash point fluid manufactured from severely
refined and synthetic base stocks and its additive system resists solubilisation of Cobalt and
other transition materials. This medium viscosity also provides excellent flushing, penetration
and filterability characteristics and due to its low volatility and wetting properties reduces
product consumption over conventional oils. The low foam tendency of Optimax 520 is ideally
suited for high speed and high pressure fluid applications.
