Recently launched, Aquaglide® 563 demonstrates promising results when analyzed against other major metalworking fluids. Aquaglide® 563 is a low oil content semi-synthetic that utilizes high-end esters to provide heavy-duty performance while delivering a clean running system.
Before launching field trials, multiple tests were completed to thoroughly evaluate the coolant; steel and steel form tapping microtap efficiency, short-term corrosion control, aluminum staining, and emulsion stability were all completed.
- Aquaglide® 563 demonstrated higher values of efficiency versus the control in the steel form tapping test than the major industrial competitor.
- Aquaglide® 563 produced no stains on any of the grades of aluminum during the aluminum staining test.
- Aquaglide® 563 showed exceptional emulsion stability when elevated levels of hardness were added, outperforming the industry-leading reference product.
Field trials of the Aquaglide® 563 have allowed job shops to run one coolant throughout their facility with widespread operator acceptance in both machinability metrics and secondary sensory parameters. Users of the Aquaglide® 563 have noted the clean running nature of the product and its ability to produce a good surface finish for contracts.
