Cutting & Grinding Fluid Additives

The troubleshooters:

As cutting and grinding fluids can start to break down over time, tankside additives can solve a number of problems. There are TRIM® tankside additives compatible with most coolants to extend tap and tool life, improve mechanical lubricity, control built-up edge, prevent stained parts, control foam, stabilize the emulsion, and replenish dye.

Whatever your problems and concerns, ask your TRIM specialist if a tank-side additive could be the answer.

TRIM® TC 155

Nonferrous Corrosion Inhibitor

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 155

TRIM® TC 155 is a nonferrous corrosion inhibitor for use in water soluble and straight oil systems. It is particularly effective in preventing staining and white rust on die cast alloys containing copper.

    TRIM® TC 175

    Chlorinated Lubricity Additive

    TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 175

    TRIM® TC 175 is a chlorinated EP (extreme pressure) lubrication/emulsifier additive package. It may be added to water-soluble coolant systems to replace or increase the presence of the chlorine EP additives in the system.

      TRIM® TC 220

      pH Adjuster

      TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 220

      TRIM® TC 220 is a triazine compound that is very effective in maintaining pH and building reserve alkalinity in metalworking fluid working solutions. Controlling pH within the design range of the product and maintaining an appropriate level of reserve alkalinity are key elements in extending sump life, controlling both liquid and vapor phase corrosion, and controlling the particle size and emulsion stability of soluble oils.

          TRIM® TC 239

          Paintable Antifoam/Defoamer

          TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 239

          TRIM® TC 239 is a paintable, platable additive used to control foam in metalworking fluids and parts washing systems.

          • Start by adding 2 ounces of TC 239 per 100 gallons of solution to lower foam. You may find that using less than this will be effective in your system.
          • Shake or stir well before adding. For best results, premix TC 239 with working solution until it is water-thin. This mixture should be added just up-stream from the foam.
          • The maximum amount of TC 239 in the system should not exceed 16 ounces per one hundred gallons of metalworking fluid. Using too much TC 239 can cause foam and/or form a residue on the machine, parts, or tools.
          • Spraying premixed TC 239 directly onto the foam will also knock it down quickly.
          • Do not freeze or store above 115°F.
