SafeTap Plus is a new waterbased tapping fluid from ITW Rocol North America (www.rocolnorthamerica.com).

The fluid, a custom blend of synthetic additives, provides the cooling properties of a water-based coolant with the viscosity of a straight oil.

The composition of SafeTap Plus provides higher viscosity and lubricity than many oil-based products while also providing the high level of rust protection expected from a synthetic fluid. The fluid not only prolongs tool life and creates better threads in tapped holes, but it also creates a safe and clean work environment for employees.

Since SafeTap Plus is water-based and contains no mineral oils or solvents, there is no oily residue left on the workpieces. It is available in 4-oz. and 16-oz bottles as well as 1-gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon containers.

The fluid can be used on all metals (except magnesium) and offers an environmentally friendly, high performance alternative to oil-based tapping fluids.
