We now have an approved chlorine free offering, suitable for the most challenging substrates machined in the aerospace industry to complement our original Tech® Cool 35052 chemistry".

Fully compatible for Titanium, high nickel alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and all ferrous substrates, Tech Cool 35052CF is the ideal solution for the most challenging metal removal operations. From grinding to broaching, milling to drilling, Tech Cool 35052CF is the product of choice for central systems and stand-alone machines.

The stability of the micro-emulsion technology is the essence of the Tech Cool product line. The ability to reject tramp oils, allow for effective coolant recycling programs, generate drier chips that are easier to separate, and dramatically reduce residues on both the parts and the tooling are just some of the exceptional benefits of the Tech Cool 35052CF. Tech Cool 35052CF is very low foaming, without the use of silicone defoamers, and is suitable for high pressure, high speed systems, even in low hardness water.
