About MWF
MWF are lubricating oils used to cool metallic work pieces when they are subject to industrial processes, such as machining, grinding, milling, stamping, and forging. MWF are added during the aforementioned and other industrial processes to reduce heat and friction between the cutting or machining tools and work pieces, and to prevent burning, smoking, and damage to tools and work pieces. These fluids also help in enhancing the overall quality of work pieces by constantly removing the metal chips from the tool used, and from work pieces. MWF are used for various industrial and commercial applications, such as fabrication of metal products, smooth working of machinery and transportation equipment, and processing of ferrous and non-ferrous primary metals. There are four categories of MWF: removal fluids, forming fluids, protection fluids and treating fluids.
