Metal Working Fluids

Neat Cutting Lubes

Overview

MERCURY ST ALL CUT (NEAT CUTTING OIL) is a product designed specifically for the deep hole drilling of aluminum and hard-to-machine steels and alloys. This oil is a light viscosity material containing excellent anti-weld additives. Light viscosity allows for excellent metal drop out rates when low turn-around filtering times are critical.

Applications

MERCURY ST ALL CUT is suitable for gun drilling, deep hole drilling, and gear cutting/shaving. Its excellent lubricity excels in honing, grinding, lapping, and broaching/tapping operations.

Features & Benefits

MERCURY ST ALL CUT ( features quick settling of of chips and grinding swarf; superior corrosion and rust protection; low oil loss; ability to drill to tighter tolerances; EP and boundary additives to increase tool life; and superior cooling, wetting, and flushing.

Specifications

Do not use on brass or copper alloys.

Water Soluble Cutting Oil

Overview

MERCURY METCUT (Cutting Oil) is a premium quality, general purpose soluble oil. It provides excellent rust protection, and emulsion stability. The result is a longer lasting material well suited for all general purpose machining, along with grinding, specialized quenching and water hydraulic applications.

Applications

MERCURY METCUT is recommended concentrations vary depending on the application. General Machining (5-10%), Grinding (2-4%), Specialized Quench (10%), Water Hydraulics (1-3%).

Features & Benefits

MERCURY METCUT is a versatile and economical product designed for a myriad of applications. It is an excellent choice for cutting and grinding steel and cast nodular iron. It can also be used to machine aluminum and copper alloys, though these materials should be immediately removed after machining to prevent staining.

Overview

MERCURY QUENCH OILS are specifically designed to meet the needs of commercial heat treaters facing the challenge of today’s increasing heat treatment problems.MERCURY QUENCH OILS are blended from high quality paraffinic base oils and specific formulated to maintain long term performance and operational productivity.

Applications

MERCURY QUENCH OILS The MERCURY QUENCH OILS 1001 is recommended for the conventional quenching of steels with low critical cooling rates and bath temperatures up to 190°F.
FAST QUENCH OILS
In those operations where metals require high critical cooling rates, MERCURY has incorporated a speed additive for fast quench capabilities. These are particularly useful for hardening lower cost (lower hardenability) steels. These oils impart optimal physical properties to steels that cannot be sufficiently hardened by conventional quench oils. The viscosity of these products is low, oil runoff is fast, and drag out losses and the load on parts washers are reduced. MERCURY QUENCH OILS 1021 is recommended for applications where it is important to maximize steel hardness while minimizing distortion. MERCURY QUENCH OILS 1032 contains an additive that allows baths to be operated up to 250°F, reducing the danger of distortion and stress cracks. MERCURY QUENCH OILS 1032 also prevents sludge and oxidation.

Features & Benefits

MERCURY QUENCH OILS exhibit superior heat transfer properties and utilize a specially formulated additive system to help collapse vapor blanketing and maximize transfer rates. By helping to eliminated sludge and varnish formation, MERCURY QUENCH OILS promote uniform cooling, help control rate variations and increased thermal gradients, as well as reduce the likelihood of product deformation.
