Metal cutting paste
We recommend you always use a metal cutting paste or lubricant when you are drilling. There are 3 main reasons you should use a cutting paste:
- Reduce friction.
- Assist cooling.
- Speed up drilling process.
Anyone familiar with drilling or cutting metal will be aware of the immediate and rapid heat build up through friction. As excessive heat can cause damage to the temper of the drill bit or the material being drilled, it is import to avoid this.
You will protect and prolong the life of your drill bit by using a metal lube.
About CUT-IT metal lubricant
You can use CUT-IT for all metals.
CUT-IT is a blend of petroleum jelly, extreme pressure additives and natural lubricants.
Because CUT-IT contains quality ‘extreme pressure additives’ it can remain effective when drilling even the hardest of metals including stainless steel.
Your benefits when using CUT-IT metal lube
- Reduce friction and tool wear
- Assist in rapid removal of heat
- Lubricate cutting tool and any metal being cut
- Works in overhead applications
- Speed up the cutting process
You can view the Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) for CUT-IT here.
CUT-IT extreme pressure properties
We requested CUT-IT to be tested by Subsea Fluid Services in order to determine the quality of its anti wear and extreme pressure additives and to ensure its suitabilty as a world class metal lubricant paste
They conducted the test in accordance with the standard ASTM D 3233-93 which is the standard test method for measurement of extreme pressure properties of fluid liquids. Subsea Fluid Services performed the test for half an hour under 1300lbs of pressure and they concluded that CUT-IT continued to lubricate under this pressure.
