Success Stories for KOOLRite Coolants

When was the last time a coolant made you say “WOW!”

"ETNA's new KOOLRite™ 2290 is absolutely the best coolant we have ever used on our equipment. Our sump life is easily five times longer than before with No Odor and No Bacterial Growth. KOOLRite has dramatically improved our work environment, reduced our maintenance and disposal costs, and our machining performance and tool life are excellent."

Dave Tucker, President

The true test of a coolant is on the job.

That's why we enthusiastically encourage trials of KOOLRite products. For example, over 90% of the trials of KOOLRite™ 2290 have been positive, with 75% of these converting to customers!
