Cutting Fluids in Industry

  • C. F. Barth
Part of the Chapman and Hall Advanced Industrial Technology Series book series (AITS)


The selection and application of cutting fluids in industry have not always been accomplished in an optimal manner. This chapter will strive to present, on a brief overview basis, useful background information regarding the evolution of modem fluids, their compositions, and simple methodologies to match products to applications. These discussions will be presented from the perspective of the user with the intent to provide a matrix of information to aid potential users in the formulation of effective in-house fluid programs.
