Heavy duty machining and grinding fluid




Many of today's modern machine shops require the use of one coolant capable of working in many applications on a wide variety of metals. Hocut 4800 is such a product. It is a versatile product that can be used with many machines including Kingsburys, Bullards, bar machines, lathes, chuckers, centerless and cylindrical grinders. Whether you're cutting high or low carbon steels, alloy steels such as 4130 and 4140; cast iron, nodular iron and gray iron; 300 and 400 series stainless steel, Hocut 4800 is the choice. It is especially suitable when machining automotive grade aluminum cast alloys including 308, 319, 356, 380, 384 and 390.


Hocut 4800 is compatible with hard water, is clean running and bio-stable, which assures long, odor-free sump life. It provides corrosion protection without staining and affords good lubrication for machine ways and indexing mechanisms. Low foaming characteristics make Hocut 4800 an excellent choice for gun drilling and other high pressure applications.
