Product Details Supplier Info More products

The Trim Tec range of chlorine-free neat oils from Master Chemical use synthetic and semi-synthetic hydrocracked base fluids together with additives to improve cutting and grinding performance.

Developed in Europe for European manufacturers, the range is said to provide advantages over standard mineral-oil-based products.

These include reduced oil consumption to optimise operating costs, lower fire risk due to higher flash points and lower foam for improved cutting and grinding performance.

They are all formulated to contribute to a safer working environment and therefore contain no polycyclic aromatics.

Very low or no mist, even at high temperatures, is a key benefit of two synthetic oils in the range.

Trim Tec OE105 is suitable for honing all materials and, in particular, for very fine machining operations.

Trim Tec OE209 is a universal machining and grinding oil but is also suitable for very-high-pressure chip-breaker operations.

Low mist is also a characteristic of Trim Tec OG108, a grinding product based on hydrocracked oil and saturated ester.

Its principal applications are grinding HSS and carbide tools, as well as gears.

Trim Tec OG210 is a similar formulation, but with EP additives making it suitable for the hard grinding of gears and other form-grinding applications.

Trim Tec OG217 is the third dedicated grinding oil in the range and its prime purpose is to grind profiles, threads and grooves.

While all oils are chosen for their lubricating qualities, several products in this range are described as providing high lubricity.

These include Trim Tec OG315, which is said to have unsurpassed oxidation stability and is especially effective in precision lathes.

The Trim Tec OG315 NS provides similar performance in heavy-machining processes such as deep-hole drilling and broaching; and both are ester based and suitable for all materials.

In the same range is Trim Tec OE220 NS for the general machining of steel, aluminium and yellow metals.

Oxidation stability is also a quality of Trim Tec OE322, a turning and milling saturated ester-based product for all materials, while Trim Tec OE322 NS is formulated for machining high-strength materials, cast metals and gear machining.

For manufacturers requiring very high lubricity, the final oil in this range is Trim Tec OE335.

This ester-based product is especially suited to very tough applications such as gear cutting and hobbing, and also for non-cutting metal forming.

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.
