VP TechP

Rust Protection Machining Coolant

ValCOOL's VP TechP General Purpose Machining Coolant has been an industry-standard microsoluble product for decades.  The fluid is truly an all purpose machining coolant that has continued to find its way into machines since the early 1990's for its excellent rust protection.  Although newer ValCOOL technologies have enhanced properties, VP TechP is still found in thousands of machines across North America.

Application & Usage

ValCOOL recommends using Val-U-Clean or K-5-P cleaner before adding VPTECHP to a machine.

The recommended concentration for VPTECHP is 5-10% for optimum results. However, results for any operation can only be determined through testing.

Maintaining the coolant at its optimum concentration is achieved through daily refractive index checking. No special precautions are necessary with respect to seals or valves.
