Applications & Usage

ValCOOL recommends using Val-U-Clean or K-5-P to thoroughly clean machine prior to adding Val-Cut Dark Cutting Oil. Be sure to completely remove all cleaner solution to avoid contamination.

Val-Cut Dark Cutting Oil is a straight cutting oil so mixing with water is not required.

Maintaining the Val-Cut Dark Cutting Oil at its optimum performance is achieved through good fluid filtration practices.

No special precautions are necessary with respect to seals or valves.

* Fluid compatibility and machinability should always be tested first; as fluid concentration, metal alloy, and machining operation are variable.
