Houghton International launched a semi-synthetic metal removal fluid platform based on a new technology for machining and grinding that provides performance and environmental benefits. Hocut 4440 delivers a cutting edge metalworking fluid for automotive, general machining and grinding applications. 

The company’s new platform can be low foaming in softer waters, giving high emulsion stability and clean-running in harder waters. It is easy to use and maintain with high detergency and dispensability, high corrosion protection for both parts and machine tool and biostability. This results in a low total cost of operation. This new platform is free of boron, formaldehyde-releasing agents, secondary amines, chlorine, phenols and nitrites. 

Hocut 4440 is formulated for use on ferrous metals such as cast iron, ductile iron and steels. Extensive field testing has also shown the fluid to provide excellent cooling for titanium grinding operations, the company says.
