My name is Charles Davis, Jr., with C & R Machine. We are trying the new MicroSol 590XT. We're running it in some 12L14 for some conveying system rollers.
With 590XT I am getting better surface finishes, better insert life compared to my older coolant which was an oil based coolant, a lot less maintenance with this coolant compared to the oil based and it mixes well and stays mixed, where I always had separation before with the oil based coolant.
That's where we're running it pretty hard um like I said we are still seeing better tool life, I haven't seen any of the speeds and feeds from what I always ran before, still running the same, we're getting a little bit better tool life.
With the 590XT we are seeing a lot better surface finishes, the chips are coming out a lot nicer, parts are coming out nicer, and cleaner, a lot less time to clean parts up after they are machined, this is a single op where we just de-burr it and dry the parts off and they go into the box, from there.

Phil Smith, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, states, "Since we have switched to using MicroSol 690XT coolant, it has eliminated all my rust issues, all of my tapping and tooling breakage issues, all the odor issues, and all of the foaming issues. MicroSol 690XT has been a great coolant."

My name is Curt Metcalf and I work at Excel Manufacturing in Seymour, Indiana. We have been testing MicroSol 690XT for about three months now on two different machines with good success. We have tested aluminum, cast iron, and ductal iron. It solved a reaming problem we had on an aluminum machining operation and and gave us good tool life. The operators like it because of the low chemical smell and the parts come clean.

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, stated, "Our shop is starting to machine a lot of titanium products. In order to prevent micro fractures in the metal, we wanted a coolant that was nonchlorinated. With the MicroSol 690XT we achieved that purpose and also cut down on tap breaks. We were having a lot of tap wear and tap breaks trying to tap titanium. After putting in the 690XT the tapping is much better, lubricity is much higher, we’re having less failure, and our taps are lasting a lot longer!"

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio noted, "Prior to using MicroSol 690XT we were using $150 to $200 every two weeks on tapping fluid aerosol cans on all the machines. Now that we are using the TRIM coolant we don’t use any other tapping product. It is now just straight coolant with no problems."

Chuck Adams, Ace Manufacturing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio, stated, "After trials with the MicroSol 690XT in three of the machines, we wanted to buy the product. Three to four weeks after cleaning the machines we were having better machining. The product was not available at the time of the trial, so we changed the rest of the shop over to 685XT, which we are currently running. As soon as 690XT goes into production, we are changing the entire shop over to 690XT."

Bradford Watts of Excel Manufacturing in Seymour, Indiana says, "MicroSol 690XT runs at about half the concentration level as our older style coolant. We have used less of the 690XT in the machines and that has saved us a lot of money. MicroSol 690XT keeps the tools as clean as the old product. MicroSol 690XT is probably the best coolant that we have had in my time here; and I have been here almost ten years."

You'll like "Hank" and "CJ." They may not sound like experts, but they know how to clean
machines — inside and out. And while they won't bore you with the process, they don't skip any steps,
either. As a result the 2002 edition of Master Chemical's Machine Cleaning video is instructive,
slightly irreverent and completely unorthodox. You'd better request your copy — now!

Dustin McCallum of TUMAC, Inc. speaks about how they were able to change their machining processes because of TRIM VHP E814. They are now able to roll tap instead of cut tap. They also were able to keep tools from degrading during their very long and complex cutting which meant that they could meet their clients surface finish requirements.

TRIM MicroSol 585XT Solves High-tech Manufacturers Problems!
Gabriel Escobar, Shop Manager, of HELI-TECH is pleased to speak about how MicroSol 585XT allowed him to convert HELI-TECH's entire shop from two types of coolants to just one. He finds it much more convenient to have just one coolant. MicroSol 585XT solved rusting issues and his high-pressure application needs!

This is a funny and educational video to help people who use cutting and grinding fluids (commonly called coolants) to machine metal using large milling or grinding-type machines. The video has two characters, Clark is the machine operator and Devin is the TRIM® representative who helps Clark understand how to take care of the cutting fluid in his sump so that he gets better tool life and avoids rust and odor issues.

Greetings, this is Mark Scherer, from Master Chemical Corporation, with a visual demonstration of how we significantly improved the low foaming characteristics of one of our TRIM cutting fluids.
On the left is TRIM MicroSol 585, while on the right is our new TRIM MicroSol 585XT, an extended-life, nonchlorinated semisynthetic metalworking fluid.
Both products are mixed using a standard kitchen mixer and at exactly five minutes the mixer is stopped. Notice how quickly the foam completely dissipates from our new MicroSol 585XT. It only takes seven seconds, compared to fourteen seconds for the original MicroSol 585.
For more information about MicroSol 585XT and other cutting fluids, please visit our website www.masterchemical.com.

Whamex has an excellent reputation for easy, fast, and productive machine sump and coolant system clean outs. Whamex can be added to machines utilizing emulsion or semisynthetic coolants and will start cleaning the sump while parts are still being cut. However, when used with pure synthetic coolants, Whamex is difficult to use while still cutting parts; it can create a lot of foam. As part of our Master STAGES™ surface treatment product line, we are introducing low-foaming Whamex XT. Production time is now increased for machine sumps filled with synthetic coolants -- parts can be cut while the cleaning process begins!
The new Whamex XT cleans just as well as the original. In this side-by-side drip demonstration, on the left is the original Whamex. On the right, is the new Whamex XT. Both are cleaning the purple-dyed, typical semisynthetic coolant equally well.
As for foam, even under extreme agitation which is validated by this mixer test, a mixture of the new Whamex XT and a typical synthetic coolant is breaking foam as quickly as the beater is creating it. And when the agitation is stopped, any foam in the new Whamex XT breaks immediately. This demonstrates the low-foaming characteristics of Whamex XT and how machine-cleaning downtime can be turned into uptime!
Contact your Master Chemical distributor today to start benefiting from the amazing new low-foaming machine-cleaning technology -- Whamex XT!
