Heavy Duty Chlorine-Free Cutting and Grinding Oil




Excelene 516 is a straight metalworking oil, designed especially for precision grinding. The product is mainly used with steel, gray cast iron, and non-ferrous heavy metals.


Excelene 516 is particularly suitable for high stock removal rates and grinding speeds due to excellent cooling and detergency properties. The extreme pressure properties ensure improved surface quality, as well as extended tool life.


Hydrocracked base oils prevent Excelene 516 from clouding and ensure minimal evaporation. Air bubbles generated while grinding are released immediately resulting in a continuously even film of lubricant at the grinding site, which promotes reduced loads on tool and work-piece.


Excelene 516 does contain top quality refined products. As a result, polychlorinated compounds (e.g. PCB, PCT, TCDD) do not form, which reduces disposal costs to a minimum.


Excelene 516 is mainly used as a precision grinding oil. However, the product is also suitable for drilling, turning, and milling at high stock removal rates.
