TechKool FT 4001 Heavy-Duty Synthetic Coolant



TechKool FT4001  is a heavy-duty, synthetic cutting fluid that is optimal for machining and grinding of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. A bio-stable coolant, this product combines excellent rust protection with low foaming characteristics and long sump life. It was formulated to reject tramp oil that can cause smoking or misting and premature spoilage of coolant. This oil-rejecting fluid offers the necessary cooling properties for high speed operations.
