Premium tri-purpose cutting oils




Macron cutting oils are transparent, light colored cutting oils formulated from high quality severely hydro-processed base stocks with a naturally high viscosity index. The Macron 221CM and 222CM cutting oils are formulated with a conventional chlorinated extreme pressure additive, whereas the Macron “M series Macron" of cutting oils utilize a unique combination of passive and inactive extreme pressure additives. The EP properties of the Macron cutting oils allow faster machining rates, provide extended tool life, and protect against staining of yellow metals. The Macron additive systems provide excellent performance in reacting at the chip-tool interface to reduce friction, but will not promote unfavorable reactions with internal components in hydraulic and lubrication systems. These cutting oils are also extremely effective at providing rust and corrosion protection of parts, cutting tools, and the machine. All of these oils have excellent anti-wear properties to minimize tool wear and reduce machine down time due to tool change-out. The Macron “M series” contains a special lubricity additive that will impart a better finish on the part without varnish or sludge formation in the machine tool or hydraulic system like those formed by many fatty oils or materials. All of these cutting oils have high flash points, that helps minimize the potential for fire. All of the Macron products contain an extremely effective anti-mist additive which reduces the formation of mist around the machine. This in turn will reduce stray mist in the atmosphere, lower machine maintenance costs, and improve shop cleanliness. The unique combination of additives in the Macron series of cutting oils also imparts excellent cooling properties which make these products good choices in many of today’s newer, hi-tech machines operating at greatly increased speed and feed rates. The excellent cooling properties of these oils have been observed in certain machining operations to eliminate overheating (blueing) of parts and chips. Macron oils are t-purpose because they can be used as the hydraulic oil, machine lube, and cutting oil in machine tools such as automatic screw machines and NC/CNC machining centers.
