Trim SC412 data sheet - .PDF file.

Electroshield, a Russian manufacturer, was experiencing long production times and high metalworking fluid replacement costs because of the short sump life of its existing product. After changing to Trim SC412, a semi-synthetic cutting and grinding fluid from Master Chemical, the company has improved its cost efficiency.

The cause of the problem was domestically supplied metalworking fluid that needed to be renewed every month. Annual consumption of this fluid was in excess of 3,000 litres.

Yury Reshmin, Master Chemical’s district manager for Russia, recommended Electroshield conduct a trial using Trim SC412 — which is formulated specifically for cost-effective, high-quality cast iron and steel machining. The fluid can be used for turning, drilling and tapping, as well as milling and grinding. It is also extremely hard-water tolerant — an important issue for Electroshield as water hardness in the Volga Region can be up to 380ppm.

For the trial, the 155-litre machine tank was filled with Trim SC412 at 11 per cent concentration and run for three months, during which time Reshmin visited the factory six times to monitor its operation and give further advice. As only 7.6 litres of the concentrate had been used during the entire trial period, Trim SC412 proved to be highly economical right from the start. For Electroshield, it provided a combination of low consumption and a long sump life.

The biostability of the product was proven, holding firm at 9.5pH throughout the trial. Corrosion protection and machine cleanliness were both good and, importantly, operator acceptance was high. Electroshield has now switched to Trim SC412 for low-carbon steel machining.
