Product Description

Metsol 9160 is a high performance heavy-duty, bio-stable, water soluble coolant for machining and grinding of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Metsol 9160 is formulated to provide exceptional tool life and long term, trouble free performance with superior tramp oil rejection. The unique chemistry of Metsol 9160 forms a bio-stable emulsion that resists the growth of bacteria, resulting in excellent rancidity control. This exclusive formulation also provides a coolant that is low foaming, making it an excellent choice for high pressure and through spindle coolant spray.

Metsol 9160 can be used in individual sumps and central systems.
