In response to original equipment manufacturers' desire to provide a safe working environment for employees, Chemetall modified its Tech Cool® 35048 to create the boron- and formaldehyde-free product. The Tech Cool® 35048BF is a recyclable metalworking fluid that is environmentally compliant and delivers improved performance.
"Biostability remains a critical challenge for producing boron-free metalworking fluid formulations, as boron restrains the biological activity in the fluids," said Frost & Sullivan Research Associate Srinivas Venkatesan. "Chemetall tackled this challenge by devising an innovative way to remove boron without affecting biostability. By eliminating biocides from the formulation, it has also been able to formulate the Tech Cool® boron free products as formaldehyde-free fluids."
Tech Cool® products can be used for machining both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. With low foam, superior emulsion stability, and high lubricity, they retain the properties of boron and biocide containing products, while offering the added benefits of being boron-free. For example, Tech Cool® 35048BF gives customers complete control of biological contamination and completely does away with foul odors. Additionally, the exceptional detergency of Tech Cool® 35048BF removes residue on machine surfaces, and has special emulsifiers and stabilizers to facilitate efficient recycling.
Chemetall has formulated its products with high emulsion stability to ensure that vital additives remain intact in the formulation, thereby increasing fluid life and lowering the cost per component for customers. More impressively, its increased sump life with its metalworking fluids has reduced the downtime for customers.
Chemetall has initiated a new customer total-value proposition called Perfect Harmony to offer customers continuous support and increased productivity. It comprises six parts, including a full line of innovative products, comprehensive expert support, open collaboration with customers, accurate lab services, delivery of products with exceptional quality standards, and personal support.
"Chemetall has also relentlessly worked toward modifying its existing products in accordance with the dynamic regulatory trends and OEM demands. It is ISO 9001:2008-certified, which translates to high reliability and superior quality management," noted Srinivas. "Furthermore, it has automated its manufacturing processes to minimize human interference and, eventually, reduce the opportunity for errors."
In The Company has utilized customer trials to showcase its proficiency and develop its brand value. By demonstrating the value of its products and services, Chemetall has positioned itself as the ideal metalworking fluid partner.
