JTM Products has released SynMax, a line of synthetic metalworking coolants formulated to cut aluminum as efficiently as steel. The coolant is said to eliminate staining of sensitive metals as well as surface and vapor phase corrosion. Parts and machine tools remain clean, with a light oil-like film to lubricate surfaces, says the company. The coolants are also said to improve cycle time and tool life.

The coolants benefit from a chemistry designed to exceed the performance of semi-synthetic fluids but without oil and what JTM sees as the historical drawbacks of synthetics. According to JTM, field trials have proven that a full synthetic—containing 0 percent mineral oil—can be used to replace a high-oil product without sacrificing lubrication. The result for operators is machining output yielding more parts per hour while machining steel, aluminum and difficult to machine alloys, according to the company.

    Unfortunately, along with this shop's successful growth rate came some new problems, the same problems experienced by many other companies: coolant odor, dermatitis outbreaks and rust.

    This shop provides a case in point of the substantial savings that can be realized with the proper coolant formulation. Rustlick Ultracut Pro, available from ITW Rocol North America, lasted twice as long in the sump than the shop’s previous coolant, leading to significant operating and maintenance cost savings.
