The Benefits of Metalworking Fluids for Refractory Metal Processing

Refractory metal metalworking fluids are engineered synthetic fluids formulated to enhance and extend tool life by improving surface finish and removing destructive friction at the contact point between the tool and the workpiece. Premium-quality metalworking fluids provide machine operations with a safe solution for low-risk, effective machining, forming, and shaping of complex substrates. Workpiece quality is improved by removing swarfs from the surface and by reducing the risk of in-process corrosion. Metalworking fluids are chemically inert, nonflammable, and formulated for numerous industrial applications.

Halocarbon uses advanced fluorochemical technology to create unmatched metalworking fluid solutions and is the first fluorinated materials producer to offer PCTFE-based lubricants. Halocarbon’s collection of metalworking fluids include a broad range of viscosities and the option of an anti-corrosion additive.
