Synthetic Coolants are formulated for metalworking applications.
January 12, 2012 -
Formulated for machining titanium, hardened steels, and superalloys, CYCLO COOL® 900 and 5000 series are comprised of additive-free synthetic concentrates with near-neutral pH formulas. Both coolants are clear in use, promoting visibility in cutting zone. While low-foaming CYCLO COOL 900 series suits high-pressure, through-tool delivery systems up to 2,000 psi, CYCLO COOL 5000 non-staining anionic synthetic cutting fluid suits applications with delivery pressures of 300-400 psi.

New High-Performance Coolants Specially Formulated for Machining Titanium, Superalloys and Hardened Steels
New synthetic concentrates are lower cost than semi-synthetics or soluble oils. Additive-free, near-neutral pH formulas ideal for operators and part quality; clear formula allows visibility in cut zone.
MAG's new CYCLO COOL® 900 and 5000 series synthetic coolants are additive free, low foaming and specially formulated for machining titanium, Inconel, beryllium copper, hardened steels, stainless steels and other superalloys. Developed for the aerospace industry, the new coolants are an ideal replacement for semi-synthetics and soluble oils, delivering significant cost savings with lower initial cost, longer tool life, increased stock removal rates, reduced housekeeping, long sump life, and freedom from biocides/fungicides/pH adjusters. These new coolants use unique synthetic formulations to provide boundary lubricant properties, while penetrating the heat barrier in the cutting zone, even at lower pressures (300 to 400 psi), to absorb heat from the tool and part, and minimize chemical reactions between tools and workpieces. Both coolants are clear in use, permitting excellent visibility in the cutting zone.
Low-foaming CYCLO COOL® 900 series coolants are intended for use in high-pressure, through-tool delivery systems at up to 2000 psi, as well as flood coolant for chip flushing. The lubrication package in the CYCLO COOL® 900 series varies to cover a range of applications from lighter duty high speed (10,000 to 15,000 rpm) milling to heavy duty drilling and tapping. Three formulations are available to match the severity of the application, utilizing concentrations in the 5-7 percent range. 900 series coolants reject 99 percent of tramp oil, allowing easy removal and reducing mist levels.
CYCLO COOL® 5000 is an anionic synthetic cutting fluid developed for severe to extreme metalworking applications at delivery pressures of 300 to 400 psi or intermittent high pressure. It utilizes a hybrid blend of patented lubricants that allows it to exceed the performance of high-oil containing semi-synthetics, chlorinated soluble oils and other heavy-duty synthetics. CYCLO COOL® 5000 is proven to deliver increased tool life with higher cutting feeds, increased feed rates and depth of cut. Its unique EP package provides heat-activated boundary lubrication, while eliminating chlorine, sulphur and phosphorus. CYCLO COOL® 5000 provides excellent corrosion control and is non-staining.
CYCLO COOL® fluids are available through MAG Global Services which provides tooling and coolants, retrofits and rebuilds, application engineering and field service. For additional information on MAG Global Services, visit mag-ias.com or email
