Master Chemical’s Trim Microsol 585XT metalworking coolant has been developed in partnership with major aerospace companies.

It provides the performance of a premium soluble oil with respect to tool life and minimises residue on machines, parts and gauging.

Trim Microsol 585XT was judged by one of these aerospace parts manufacturers to be the optimum cutting and grinding product in tests to measure spindle motor load.

This cutting and grinding fluid concentrate is a high-lubrication, semi-synthetic micro-emulsion coolant.

It provides cooling and mechanical lubrication without chlorinated or sulphurised EP additives.

In the production of aerospace parts this is particularly important as, unlike aluminium, the titanium alloys that are commonly used are poor thermal conductors.

The heat generated during the cutting process can therefore dull cutting tools very quickly, so good lubrication is essential to extending their life and reducing process costs.

Tool life can also be predicted by measuring built-up edge; the greater BUE, the duller the tool and the shorter its life.

In tests against competitor’s products Trim Microsol 585XT showed the lowest average BUE.

In general, this product provides the characteristics that are the typically associated with a premium Trim coolant, according to Master Chemical.

Fast wetting gets the fluid to the point of cut speedily and it fully coats the work piece and chips for superior corrosion prevention.

At 10 per cent concentration, it provided the highest test score for protecting aluminium, brass and copper.

Trim Microsol 585XT is also particularly well suited for machining and grinding cast iron, and is effective in mixed-metal processing.

Extremely hard-water tolerant, this latest addition to the Master Chemical range is also low foaming for use in modern, high-pressure CNC machine tools.

The Coolant Management Company

Master Chemical develops and markets a comprehensive metalworking fluid
programme.  Its products are cutting and grinding fluids, cutting oils,
washing and cleaning compounds and rust preventatives.  They are all
marketed under the brand name, TRIM.

Since 1990 Master Chemical Europe has provided a dedicated sales and
manufacturing service for Europe.  In that time it has also become the
centre of excellence for product development to meet the specific production
needs of European manufacturers.

Its research has led to the introduction of a range of water- and vegetable
ester based formulations that are non-hazardous yet offer superb production

The need for this type of metalworking fluid is driven by EU regulation and
as a result Master Chemical Europe is now the leading manufacturer of
application-specific metalworking fluids.

When used in conjunction with Master Chemical’s trademark coolant management
strategies, these products provide optimum productivity and significant
operating cost reduction.

To provide greater capacity for this work the company recently moved to new
premises that include a laboratory that is three times bigger than its

Master Chemical Europe is now responsible for supporting an ever-expanding
distributor network, extending from Portugal in the south to Russia and
Scandinavia in the north and east.
