Q8 Baroni XUP data sheet - .PDF file.

Kuwait Petroleum International Lubricants (Q8Oils) has introduced Q8 Baroni XUP, a soluble cutting fluid that has been specially formulated to be cost effective in machining operations such as milling, turning, drilling and deep-hole drilling using demanding materials such as yellow metals, high-tensile steels, stainless steels, aluminium alloys, titanium and heat-resistant alloys.

Q8 Baroni XUP is semi-synthetic and chlorine and boron free, with a combination of synthetic lubricity additives that reduce long-term costs by improving machining efficiency, minimising reject rates and providing an overall reduction in tooling costs.

This also means that, in severe situations where neat cutting oils would normally be specified, rationalisation is feasible without compromising surface finish or tool life.

With excellent wetting and detergency characteristics, Q8 Baroni XUP ensures good tramp oil rejection to provide fluid stability and long sump life in soft- and hard-water areas. It also minimises residue build-up in hard-water areas.

Further benefits

  • Q8 Baroni XUP provides operator benefits by improving visibility and helping to create a cleaner, healthier working environment.
  • It offers multi-metal compatibility and machine-material versatility is reinforced with an effective anti-corrosion package that ensures maximum protection to machine tools and components.
  • A highly stable micro-emulsion, formed by Q8 Beroni XUP, extends fluid life and minimises the need for fluid changeover.
  • Its low-foaming properties minimise spillages and, being free from chlorinated paraffins, it requires no environmental labelling.
