The coolant supplier claims the Brunel range is formulated to be fully compliant with latest European industry legislation providing a range of products that are free from boron, boric acid, chlorinated paraffin, secondary amine, formaldehyde releasing biocides and nitrites.
Q8Oils' product line manager Stuart Duff says: “Following extensive research and both laboratory and field trial testing, we have reinvented the way in which the industry approaches soluble metalworking fluid chemistry by developing a completely new approach that focuses on three key customer requirements – product performance, environmental protection and operator health. Q8 Brunel is so advanced that it has the potential to reduce the operating costs for every customer.”
All Brunel grades comply with TRGS 611 and are suitable for use in hard and soft water where they display low foaming properties. They are ideal for high-speed machining applications and the demanding fluid delivery pressures found on modern machine tools where significant tool life improvements are achievable.
Q8 has also launched ‘The Challenge', the company's latest metalworking fluid initiative for machine shop owners and operators that offers new customers the opportunity to trial soluble and neat metalworking fluids in their own machine shops.
Q8Oils' direct sales manager Jeremy Dineen explains: “We have launched The Challenge because we are confident that customers will find a Q8Oils metalworking fluid that is ideal for their processes and applications that also saves them money.”
The company is convinced that, by offering a payment by results trial, The Challenge will prove the benefits of its metalworking fluids to UK manufacturers.
After first establishing mutually agreed objectives, Q8Oils will set up the trial and then monitor ongoing performance of the lubricant to ensure that it, and the machine, are operating at peak performance. A comprehensive report on the results is presented at regular intervals during the trial and at the end of The Challenge.
As well as performance requirements, Q8Oils also recognises its customers' commercial needs: “By offering optimum, high and extreme performance products we can help customers balance criteria such as surface finish, the severity of the working environment and productivity against cost,” Mr Dineen concludes.
