SEE HOW CASTROL HYSOL XBB CAN CUT THE COMPROMISE

Until now, cutting fluids for ferrous metals have needed particular care and attention to keep them in good working condition – avoiding poor sump life, increased additive usage, bacterial or fungal infections, bad odours and unpleasant working environments and, ultimately, high rejection rates.

To achieve this, traditional cutting fluids contain boron and formaldehyde-releasing agents. But using these chemicals is increasingly at odds with health and safety regulation.

It’s an ongoing balancing act – one Castrol’s technical experts have overcome with XBB: a unique formulation method that prolongs the life of cutting fluids without the use of additives.

Now you can Cut the Compromise

Castrol’s technical experts have tackled these conflicting challenges when machining ferrous alloys by introducing Castrol Hysol SL 35 XBB. Formulated using unique resilient additive technology, this innovative solution maintains pH at a constant level, assuring consistent productivity for longer than other standard cutting fluids*.

Castrol Hysol SL 35 XBB is also boron and biocide free, which can help improve your health and safety profile in itself.
