Cimcool Global Industrial Fluids has received approval from Boeing Commercial Aircraft Group for its Cimcool Cimtech 46C Metalworking Fluid, under BAC 5008REVr - Areas 5 and 6, including titanium alloys. The fluid is recommended for moderateduty grinding of hard metals such as cobalt, Stellite and titanium alloys, including chrome plated and HVOF thermal spray coating components.
The company said that while meeting the strict performance and chemical requirements of aerospace manufacturing, Cimtech 46C is very clean, has exceptional foam control, is easily maintained and provides exceptional odor control and long sump life. Depletion resistant, it reduces costs by minimizing the amount of concentrate required for makeup. Most important, the fluid contains a blend of inhibitors that protect ferrous machine tool components while minimizing dissolved cobalt in solution.
In addition, Cimtech 46C is low misting and does not smoke or leave a slippery, oily film on parts, machines or surrounding areas. It is a clear mix and rejects tramp oils, which allows for easy removal by oil-skimmers.
