Metalworking Fluids

Caltex Bright-Cut AH

Bright-Cut metal working fluids are chlorine- free cutting oils that offer benefits not found in conventional cutting oils. The unique synthetic anti-weld components replace the chlorine and reduce the amount of sulfur typically needed for difficult cutting operations. They are light in color, for improved visibility during machining, and low in odor.

  • Excellent anti-weld performance, extended tool life and superior surface finish, without chlorine and fat, and with reduced amounts of sulfur.
  • Clear, light color allows operator to better see the machined part during the cutting operation.
  • Minimal odor – Does not have the strong sulfur smell characteristic of conventional cutting oils, resulting in a more pleasant work environment.
  • Chlorine-free – Reduces the cost of disposal at the end of the fluid life.
  • Better thermal and oxidation stability – For longer fluid life, due toGroup II base stocks found in NM, AH and AXH grades.
  • Reduced misting and smoking for a safer work environment – The thermal stability and low volatility of the Group II base stock and the use of an effective mist suppressant reduces worker exposure to cutting oil mist and vapor.
  • Multipurpose performance – The non-staining cutting oils are formulated to serve as the cutting oil, hydraulic fluid and machine lubricant to eliminate the problem of machine lubricants contaminating the cutting oil.

Provide excellent cooling and lubrication in a wide range of machining operations

• Prevent welding of chip and tool

• Flush chips away from the work area

• Protect the finished work surfaces, tools and machines against rusting and staining

• Minimizes oil mist in high speed machines tools

• Bright-Cut AH and AXH contain active sulfur that will stain copper and brass

• The nonstaining oil, Bright-Cut NM Metalworking Fluid, can be used as a dual or tri- purpose oil in associated splash, hydraulic or spindle lubrication systems of metalworking machines.

• Minimises oil mist in high speed machine tools

Service Classification: Heavy Duty, Active
Provides excellent performance for a wide range of applications. It is suitable for machining tough alloy steels and stainless steels. It is well adapted for broaching, threading, tapping and other difficult operations requiring a heavy duty oil for tool life and finish.
