PMTS 2019: QualiChem offers more than 30 different GTL-based oils in a variety of viscosities and additive packages for use in numerous machining and turning operations.

QualiChem offers more than 30 different GTL-based oils in a variety of viscosities and additive packages for use in Swiss-type automatics, tool grinding, high-speed milling, drilling and tapping centers, and numerous other machining and turning operations.

These oils are synthesized from natural gas and are said to be free from the typical contaminants found in crude oil, such as aromatics, nitrogen, heavy metals and sulfur. These colorless and virtually odorless oils are formulated to deliver high relative flash points in all viscosities, and foam control and quick release of entrained air. The low evaporation and low volatility of the oils reduce consumption and low misting and low odors improve workplace conditions, according to the company.
