Water Soluble Metalworking Fluids

In today’s high technology production facilities coolants play a key role and are a vital part of the production process. Mercury extensive  range of soluble metal working fluids provides a number of long lasting operational benefits. These include:

Reduce coolant use: Our soluble metalworking fluids are formulated by using the latest technology and raw materials resulting in a reduced consumption of coolants (drag out). This indirect saving contributes to an overall economical operation
Health, safety and environmental commitments: Our formulations allow users to reach their goals in the light of these issues
Trouble free operation: The latest technology and materials used in our products warrant trouble free operation which will increase your productivity and overall performance
Longer tool life: Outstanding EP properties will increase tool life and contribute to lower operational costs


Sol TB 2 Rvn no : 1

Grinding and general machining EP soluble coolant

mercury Sol TB 2 is a semi-synthetic metalworking fluid which forms very stable micro emulsions when mixed with water. Thanks to the special formulation ensures a great biological stability it is not necessary to add biocides or fungicides. mercury Sol TB 2 is a biostatic product with EP properties achieving long life and non-generating additional maintenance costs. The product does not produce impact on operators and protects the machine from rust.

mercury Sol TB 2 is suitable for a wide variety of machining operations and grinding on all grades of steel, brass, aluminium, copper, bronze and cast iron. The product is suitable for centralized systems and independent machines.

mercury Sol TB 2  is easy to mix. Simply pour the concentrate into water at the appropriate solution and mix. Hardness of water should be between 50 ppm and 500 ppm and chloride content not superior to 0,1 gr/l. mercury Sol TB 2  is recommended to use between 4 to 7% depending on severity of application. For severe machining from 7 to 10%. For grinding operations from 3 to 5 %.

Dilutions can be easily checked by Refractometer: % Concentration = Refractometer reading x 1,2


Soluble oils are susceptible to frost damage. Store containers indoors to protect extremes of temperature.
