C-3000 Full Synthetic Cutting Fluid

Coolant fluid is designed specifically for metal cutting applications and machining processes. It is made to cool the material being cut and lubricate the blade doing the cutting. The oil used provides a measure of corrosion protection and helps remove metal shavings (chips). The two types of coolant or sawing fluid are synthetic and semi-synthetic. Both are translucent blue, water soluble, and designed as moderate to heavy-duty sawing fluid. Full synthetic is used in all sawing and grinding procedures while semi-synthetic is created exclusively for sawing applications alone. At SawBlade.com, we offer both varieties of coolant in C-2000 semi-synthetic and C-3000 full synthetic coolant. C-3000 …

Shortened blade life causes expense by having to spend more money purchasing new blades. To help protect bandsaw blades from early fail, and to help save time and money, it is recommended that bandsaw operators use cutting fluid. Cutting fluid can mean coolant or lubricant. The terms are indiscriminate now and used to describe either coolant or lubricant. They are used to dissipate heat on a saw blade as it works its way through the material, providing a coating or lubricant to the blade — increasing blade life, protecting the …
