Cutting & Grinding Fluid Additives

The troubleshooters:

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

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

  • Nonsilicone

TRIM® TC 211

pH Adjuster/Emulsion Stabilizer

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 211

TRIM® TC 211 is an amine-based pH adjuster used to replenish depleted alkalinity in metalworking fluid working solutions. It is especially effective in central systems and batch recycling systems.

  • pH adjustment
  • Emulsion stabilization
  • Central systems
  • Replenish depleted alkalinity

TRIM® TC 239

Paintable Antifoam/Defoamer

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 239

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

  • Paintable
  • Plateable

TRIM® TC 256

pH Adjuster

TRIM® TC 256 is a mixture of compounds that are 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 emulsion stability of soluble oils.

  • pH adjustment
  • Building reserve alkalinity
  • Extending sump life
  • Controlling both liquid and vapor phase corrosion
