NEW EASY TO USE WATER-DILUTABLE TAPPING FLUID REPLACES BOTH SOLVENT & OIL-BASED FLUIDS
SOLON, OH–(Date)– A new high performance, easy to use tapping / threading fluid has been announced by its manufacturer, JTM Products, Inc. TapRite™ V Tapping Fluid is water-dilutable, and designed to replace both solvent and oil-based fluids without compromising performance, providing excellent part finishes as well as extended tool-life. Its performance makes it an ideal “universal” tapping fluid, appropriate for any machine shop
TapRite V’s advanced formulation provides many benefits to metalworkers. It has excellent wetting properties with a strong affinity to metal surfaces, allowing the fluid to migrate to the workpiece / tool interface faster than similar products. Its exceptional flowability improves handling as well as simplifying the operator’s task by flowing into hard-to-reach crevices during the cut. TapRite V is heat-activated, providing extreme pressure performance to protect tools and workpieces where the cut generates high heat.
Additionally, TapRite V is supplied ready to use, is shelf-stable, and requires no pre-mixing prior to use. Performance is consistent while mixing is eliminated. TapRite V is compatible with metalworking coolants. If an application presents the potential that the tapping fluid may come into contact with metalworking coolants, TapRite V will emulsify into the coolant without causing complications. Finally, by being water-dilutable, TapRite V can be easily dialed-in to the specific viscosity and concentration requirements of an application. Being water-diluted has an additional benefit; it is easier to rinse from the machined workpiece than solvent or oil-based fluids.
TapRite V is available in 16 oz. bottles, one-gallon jugs and in five-gallon pails. Its manufacturer, JTM Products, Inc., has been providing industrial lubricants since 1890 and has been an innovator in water-soluble lubricants since the early 1900s when it introduced the world’s first water-soluble petroleum oil cutting fluid for machine tools.
