Cooling lubricants

Graconol

Through the exclusive use of high-purity ingredients, further processing of the component can be carried out immediatley without re-cleaning.

This guarantees a high level of precision. Especially for high tech industries such as medical, aerospace & automotive industry

What are the advantages of working with Graconol as a cooling lubricant?

  • Additional cooling effect through evaporation ensures longer tool life at highest speed in processing.
  • Resulting in clean & dry workpieces which can be processed directly without washing (welding, anodizing, etc.)
  • Easy and time-saving cleaning of the machine, as the chips are dry and no residues of the cooling stick to the machine or product itself.
  • Economic as well as ecological due to easy recycling of aluminum chips – no residues.
  • Sustainable, as a renewable resource.

Applicable for

  • simple – heavy machining
  • cnc milling, -drilling, -turning, -cutting
  • used in single-filled machines as well as central installations.

Graconol WM – Concentrate (6 to 8%)

Graconol WM is an innovative and label-free high-performance cooling lubricant. Graconol is supplied as a water dilutable concentrate. For use on all materials.

Technical characteristics

  • no hazard classification and boron free
  • biologically degradable
  • environmentally friendly
  • can be used for steel, cast iron, aluminium and NE – metals
  • high and long-term stability of the dispersion and good processability
  • good flushing and high cooling effect
  • very economical due to high dilutability
  • High Corrosion protection
  • Stable emulisons at preparation water from 10 °dH bis 30 °dH
  • Stable emulisions at 60 °dH

Applicable for

  • simple – heavy machining
  • cnc milling, -drilling, -turning, -cutting
  • used in single-filled machines and central installations.

Please follow the instruction guides on the label and the EG- safety data sheet! Our technical datas have been compiled carefully and to the best of our knowledge. Due to the large number of possible influences during the processing and application of the products, they do not exempt the user from carrying out his own conscientious tests! A legally binding assurance of certain properties or the suitability for a certain application cannot be derived from our data. Existing laws and regulations must be checked and observed by the user on his own responsibility before use.

FAQ.
What are the advantages of machining with Graconol as a cooling lubricant?2022-12-30T19:46:08+01:00
  • Additional cooling effect through evaporation ensures longer tool life at higher feed rates and infeeds.
  • Clean, dry workpieces that can be further processed (welding, anodizing, etc.) directly and without washing.
  • Easy and time-saving cleaning of the machine, as the chips are dry and no residues of the cooling lubricant adhere to the machine.
  • Economic as well as ecological recycling of aluminum chips – no residues.
  • Sustainable, since renewable resource

Safe handling of ethanol as a cooling lubricant:

Due to the chemical properties of Graconol, certain requirements must be met and instructions followed during processing. Information on this can be found in the operating instructions for your milling machine, e.g. on the following points:

  • Milling of non-sparking materials.
  • No ignition source in and on the machine.
  • Sufficient air exchange according to the operating instructions in the production environment.
  • Storage conditions on the machine: Only in unbreakable containers with a maximum capacity of 10 liters each (according to TRGS 510 point 4.2).
  • Unrestricted operation of the fans of the machine.
When should Graconol not be used?2022-12-30T19:45:50+01:00

Under certain circumstances, the use of ethanol is not possible (please observe the operating instructions and product description). This concerns, for example, the processing…

  • of spark-forming materials (e.g. steel, titanium, …).
  • of materials that undergo chemical changes due to ethanol (e.g. plastics).
  • using a chip extractor

How do I mix the concentrate?2022-12-30T19:45:00+01:00

It is best to use an electric mixer. If you mix manually, add the concentrate slowly to the water while stirring vigorously.

What water can I use for mixing?2022-12-30T19:44:25+01:00

For the make-up water, the use of drinking water is fine.

According to TRGS 611, it must be ensured that the make-up water has a nitrate content of less than 50 mg/l.

This is guaranteed when drinking water is used.

What are the technical specifications of the concentrate?2022-12-30T19:40:16+01:00

Mineral oil content: approx. 45

PH value 5%: up to 9.9 – decreases during use

Corrosion protection DIN 51360/2 6% – grade 0 (no corrosion)
