Witcol Cutwell – 6000

Water Soluble Synthetic Cutting Oil :

Witcol Cutwell - 6000 is concentrated, water-soluble oil Compounded for ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

Witcol Cutwell - 6000 is blended from the finest quality of Synthetic Esters available. Incorporated into these Esters are extreme pressure additives, and emulsifier and germicidal agents.

It is a heavy duty, soluble oil with high EP properties. An emulsion of Water Soluble Cutting Oil combines the cooling characteristics of a conventional emulsion with the load carrying properties of cutting oil. Thus, a product of this type can be used on machining operations where the extreme pressure requirements are too severe for conventional soluble oils.

It is generally recommended for heavy duty machining of carbon steels, stainless steels, and high temperature alloys, on automatic lathe, drilling, milling and boring operations.

It can also be used in applications such as gear hobbing, gear shaping and broaching of ferrous metals.
