Sustainability with formaldehyde-free and boron-free products
Formaldehyde is a colourless gas that has a distinctive and irritating odour. It is an example of a volatile organic compound from the wider group of aldehydes.
Exposure to this substance over the short and long term can be harmful to health if the correct precautions are not taken during use.
That is why it is also important to always consult all safety information before using a chemical substance. To completely rule out exposure to formaldehyde, Unil Lubricants has done its utmost to optimise its metal processing formulas to a variant which no longer requires the addition of formaldehyde. During the development of the new formulas, it was crucially important to retain the trusted quality of the products. Following years of research and testing, we are proud to launch a fully updated range of emulsions
and microemulsions that are safer than ever to use.
In addition to minimising the health risks by banning formaldehyde, the impact of the products on the environment must be limited as far as possible. Although boron salts are in principle safe to use, they can have a negative impact when they find their way into the environment. To avoid this, Unil Lubricants has also created a boron-free variant for each new formaldehyde-free formula.
Safecut AERO 400
Safecut AERO 400 is a boron-free, semi-synthetic micro-emulsion that is suitable for turning, sawing, milling and drilling stainless steel and aluminium. Although this soluble oil was specially developed for the aviation industry, it can also be used for all difficult processes on these metals.
And especially for processes where the surface finish is important. With its highly specific properties and the high requirements made by the aviation industry of Unil Lubricants, this product complies with all specifications under AEROSPACE ASN 42.302. That is why this metal processing oil
is also exceptionally resistant
to high pressures.
Safecut M 145 NT
Safecut M 145 NT is a boron-free, bio-stable micro-emulsion that forms a transparent micro-emulsion in water. It was designed for general processing and
is suitable for both hard and medium-hard water. It is the successor to Safecut M 140 NT, and with its new additives and adapted formula offers even greater malleability
with an even longer tool life and enhanced sustainability.
This oil is a universal product. It is ideal for milling, turning and tapping parts for machines such as looms and agricultural machinery. The universality of Safecut M 145 NT is also demonstrated by the different materials that can be worked using this emulsion. For instance, it is suitable for all yellow metals, aluminium, steel and alloys, stainless steel and even titanium.
