Synkool SS is a concentrated water-soluable semi-synthetic, biostable, low foaming non-staining metalworking fluid that is recommended for use in grinding and other high speed light to heavy duty machining operations on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Synkool SS does not contain any active sulfer, chlorine, nitrites, phenols, Diethanolamine (DEA) or heavy metals.

This product is especially recommended for use in metalworking fluid operations that employ the use of high-pressure machines.

Synkool SS possesses excellent cooling, extreme pressure, and lubricity properties that are needed for high speed machining operations. Synkool SS contains surface-active ingredients, which enable the fluid to wet the metal surfaces of the tool and the workpiece in order to provide a protective film for lubricating the tool and the workplace interface. Synkool SS also contains synthetic lubricity and anti-weld additives that function as extreme pressure agents that reduce the coefficient of friction between the tool and the workplace interface. This combination of cooling and extreme pressure/lubricity properties effectively transfers heat away from the cutting zone, thus reducing friction between the cutting tool and the workpiece. This in turn results in greater  dimensional accuracy, higher turning speeds and feeds, prevention of the chips from welding to the cutting tools, improved surface finish and extended tool life.

Synkool SS contains an effective low-foaming emulsifier system that allows the Synkool SS to be mixed with water at varying concentrations. This emulsifier system allows the oil portion of the Synkool SS to be evenly and uniformly dispersed throughout the coolant mixture. This even and uniform dispersion results in a transparent emulsion that allows the operator the ability to see the workpiece being machined.  Further, by being evenly and uniformly dispersed, the smoking and misting characteristics that are associated with the use of soluble cutting fluids is virtually eliminated.

This emulsifier system also provides a detergent action that allows the Synkool SS the ability to break up and dislodge dirt and grit in order to keep the machine and tools clean. This detergent action also assists in flushing of the chips and fines away from the cutting area.

The emulsifier system further complements and enhances the performance characteristics of Synkool SS's rust and corrosion inhibiting additive package. The emulsifier system enhances the rust and corrosion inhibitors' alkaline reserve during use resulting in the Synkool SS being able to resist rancidity, a drop on pH and prevention of the rusting of parts, tools, and machinery.

Synkool SS's emulsifier system contains sequestering agents which combat iron, calcium and magnesium ions in hard water up to 400ppm; thus preventing the formation of hard water soaps, scum, and resins on the machine and the parts.

Synkool SS provides the following benefits during use:

  • Excellent cooling and lubricity
  • Excellent extreme pressure protection
  • Ability to machine at high speeds and feed rates

  • Very low misting properties
  • Prevents chip "clinkering" and hot chip hoppers
  • Operator friendly and clean running
  • Very low carry-off for low, long term operating costs
  • Mild and pleasant odor
  • Good workpiece visibility
  • Reduced overall waste volume and spent-fluid disposal costs
  • Reduced rejection of parts
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Increased productivity
  • Lower overall operating costs

Prior to charging the system with Synkool SS, it is recommended that the system be thoroughly cleaned to remove residues, machining debris and fines, bioacumulations, ect, from previously used products. A typical recommended cleaning procedure would involve filling the sytem with a solution of a commercially available cleaner, circulating the cleaner for 2 to 4 hours, draining it, and then rinsing with hot water until the rinse water is clear. Depending upon the system size and the condition, additional steps involving physical cleaning and/or circulation of bactericides or fungicides such as a bleach solution may be required to clean and disinfect extremely dirty systems.
