Cutting & Grinding Fluid Additives

The troubleshooters:

As cutting and grinding fluids can start to break down over time, tank-side additives can solve a number of problems. There are TRIM tank-side additives compatible with most coolants to extend tap and tool life, improve mechanical lubricity, control built-up edge, prevent stained parts, control foam, stabilize the emulsion, and replenish dye.

Whatever your problems and concerns, ask your TRIM specialist if a tank-side additive could be the answer.

Machine Talk: A Handy Guide to a Clean Machine


High-lubricity, Clear Sulfur Oil Additive

TRIM<sup>®</sup> OSA

TRIM OSA is a clear oil additive containing inactive sulfur. OSA has outstanding lubricity in all circumstances and provides extreme pressure anti-weld at high speeds and loads.

  • Use as an additive to straight grinding oils, will reduce heat, misting, and allow increased feed rates in creepfeed applications
  • Extend the life of thread-forming taps and thread-rolling dies
  • Use in Swiss-type screw machines using solid carbide bushings to dramatically increase bushing life
  • Compatible with all TRIM straight oils and TRIM TAP LIGHT, TRIM TAP HEAVY, and TRIM TAP NC

TRIM® TC 143

Phenolic Stabilizer

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 143

TRIM TC 143 is a mixture of emulsifiers and an emulsion stabilizer which, when added to chemical emulsion type products, will help enhance emulsion stability.

  • Emulsion stability
  • Maximize performance

TRIM® TC 155

Nonferrous Corrosion Inhibitor

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 155

TRIM TC 155 is a nonferrous corrosion inhibitor for use in water soluble and straight oil systems. It is particularly effective in preventing staining and white rust on die cast alloys containing copper.

  • Prevents staining and white rust on die cast alloys containing copper
  • Nonferrous corrosion inhibition

TRIM® TC 175

Chlorinated Lubricity Additive

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 175

TRIM TC 175 is a chlorinated EP (extreme pressure) lubrication/emulsifier additive package. It may be added to water-soluble coolant systems to replace or increase the presence of the chlorine EP additives in the system.

  • New, easier to mix formulation
  • New, chlorine EP additives stay in systems longer

TRIM® TC 177

Odor Mask

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 177

TRIM TC 177 is a "vanilla" odor mask. This product may be used to reduce some of the odors associated with coolant systems.

  • "Vanilla" odor mask


Nonsilicone Antifoam

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 184B

TRIM TC 184B is a nonsilicone antifoam or defoamer. It is used as a tank-side add to control foam in water-miscible coolants, washing compounds, floor soaps, etc.

  • Antifoam
  • Nonsilicone

TRIM® TC 204

Blue Dye

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 204

TRIM TC 204 is a water-soluble blue dye. The product is used tank side to replenish depleted dye in water-soluble products or to color undyed products.

  • Blue dye
  • Water soluble

TRIM® TC 211

pH Adjuster/Emulsion Stabilizer

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 211

TRIM TC 211 is an amine-based pH adjuster used to replenish depleted alkalinity in metalworking fluid working solutions. It is especially effective in central systems and batch recycling systems.

  • pH adjustment
  • Emulsion stabilization
  • Central systems
  • Replenish depleted alkalinity

TRIM® TC 220

pH Adjuster

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 220

TRIM TC 220 is a triazine compound that is very effective in maintaining pH and building reserve alkalinity in metalworking fluid working solutions. Controlling pH within the design range of the product and maintaining an appropriate level of reserve alkalinity are key elements in extending sump life, controlling both liquid and vapor phase corrosion, and emulsion stability of soluble oils.

  • pH adjustment
  • Building reserve alkalinity
  • Extending sump life
  • Controlling both liquid and vapor phase corrosion

TRIM® TC 233

Lubricity Additive

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 233

TRIM TC 233 is a dual-purpose additive which is used in synthetic (e.g., TRIM C270, C276, etc.) and some semisynthetic (e.g., TRIM SC230, SC520, etc.) coolants. It can increase lubricity for operations such as drilling or tapping. At fluid temperatures above 95°F (35°C), it will act as an anti-foam.

  • Increase lubricity
  • Reduce friction

TRIM® TC 239

Paintable Antifoam/Defoamer

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 239

TRIM TC 239 is a paintable, plateable additive used to control foam in metalworking fluids and parts washing systems.

  • Paintable
  • Plateable

TRIM® TC 251

Non-chlorinated Lubricity Additive

TRIM<sup>®</sup> TC 251

TRIM TC 251 is a non-chlorinated lubricity additive. It is used as a tank-side additive to water-soluble and semisynthetic coolant systems to increase lubricity.

  • Non-chlorinated
  • Increases lubricity in water-soluble and semisynthetic coolant systems
  • New chlorine free EP additives stay in systems longer

TRIM® TC 252
