Metalworking

Interlube Corporation manufactures a complete line of lubricants and cleaning compounds for the metalworking industry.

Metalworking can be classified into two types: metal forming and metal removal. Metal forming operations, such as forging, rolling, extrusion, drawing, wire drawing, stamping, swaging and roll forming, form metal through deformation of the metal. Metal removal operations remove metal by applying a tool at an appropriate speed and force to remove the metal as chips. These include turning, milling, broaching, threading, drilling, tapping, cutoff, grinding, polishing and lapping.

Interlube Corporation manufactures an extensive line of metalworking lubricants for all of the above metalworking operations. Straight oils, synthetics, and semi-synthetics are all available. A variety of viscosities, extreme pressure types, and additive combinations make it possible for Interlube Corporation to develop a metalworking product to do the job necessary for our customers. Interlube’s technical staff works closely with our customers to provide them the correct product and services for the job.

Here are a few of our products. We can custom design a product to meet your requirements. Please contact us for additional information or to place an order.

Bestcool 208

is a synthetic, heavy duty, water soluble, metal working fluid designed for a large cross section of metal working operations. This is not merely a coolant, a lubricant, or a rust inhibitor, but a unique combination of all these functions plus many added features. It contains a high level of additives, which improve lubricity and give it extreme pressure properties not found in most synthetic coolants. Also included are several additives designed to give it a long, trouble free life and prevent spoilage, bacterial growth, and residue build up. Unlike most metal working fluids, it is not affected by hard water, and functions to reduce the misting of water-based fluid. This metal working fluid itself acts as a light duty cleaner for parts and equipment, and deposits a short-term rust protective film.

Protect-O-Cote

products are a series of versatile and effective rust preventatives for use under the most severe corrosion conditions. The Protect-O-Cote products have solvent carriers and, on evaporation of the solvent, they deposit an amber, translucent, “dry to the touch” film that gives long-term indoor and outdoor corrosion protection. The film protects metal surfaces against corrosion when exposed to extremes of high humidity, high and low temperatures, water mists, salt-water sprays, and environmental fumes. Protection supplied by the Protect-O-Cote products ranges from a long term indoor storage from Protect-O-Cote 1000 to long term outdoor storage from Protect-O-Cote OS. Protect-O-Cote products do not remove rust, but after thorough removal of loose scales, they can be applied to rusted surfaces to prevent further corrosion.

Quenching Oil 75 FQ

a general purpose, premium quality, quenching fluid for use in steels lean in alloy content and small grain size, which require fast to moderate quenching speed. It is ideal for parts with odd shapes or variable sections.

Rust Preventative 208

is a completely synthetic, heavy duty, water soluble, rust inhibitor designed to give excellent rust protection for short-term indoor storage. Its water-based formulation makes it easy to dilute with water. Dilution ratios vary upon the amount of film desired and storage duration requirements. In general, 20:1 dilution gives very good rust protection. Rust Preventative 208 is formulated with additives designed to prevent spoilage, bacterial growth, and residue build up – giving it a long, trouble free life.

SM Cutting Oil MV 281-E

specially designed for use in automatic screw machines requiring a combination cutting fluid and machine tool lubricant.  It has high lubricity, excellent boundary lubrication, and very effective anti wear capabilities to serve as the machine tool lubricant.

Thread Cutting Oil 300

is designed and manufactured to exacting specifications, which result in a product that is multi functional, exhibits excellent extreme pressure lubrication and better than average lubricity. In circumstances where only one product can be purchased Thread Cutting Oil 300 is an excellent choice. Thread cutting by hand or by automatic machines, along with tapping is also possible. The relatively high viscosity, 300 SUS at 100ºF, results in much slower runoff than products of lesser viscosity. This formulation is effective in reducing friction at the tool thread interface resulting in lower temperatures, faster, deeper and more uniform cuts. It can be use on all types of steel, including stainless steel. Because of the unique balance of ingredients, materials such as copper, nickel silver, phosphor bronze and other nonferrous metals can be cut with very minor discoloration. The high film strength that is built into Thread Cutting Oil 300 allows it to be used in applications where various grades of steels are machined. The use of a centrifuge will allow the separation of chips from the cutting oil and subsequent reuse of the product.

Waylube 160, 325, 500, & 1000

Specially compounded oils designed for lubrication of machine tool ways and other wetted parts. They are fortified with a unique combination of polymers, EP agents, and special boundary lubricants, which give them extremely low friction coefficient ratios (static/kinetic). This prevents machine tool carriage chatter, surface tolerance problems, and other variations that result from stick-slip operation. These products exceed major machine manufacturers’ requirements.

Special polymers are incorporated in these way lubricants to improve on the oil’s natural ability to adhere to the ways, gears, and other high load bearing surfaces, under even the most severe operating conditions. All of these factors yield reduced maintenance, decreased down time, and improved performance. These way lubricants are useful for a wide variety of other lubricating needs including enclosed gears, sliding surfaces, bearings, and chains where their high load carrying and adhesive properties are beneficial.
