Cutting fluid, also known as coolant, is a lubricant or oil, used for increasing a tool’s cutting condition and lifespan. It can be both gas and liquid. Those involved with metalworking can use a cutting fluid to cool the tool, decrease friction that may affect the tool’s quality, and prevent the tool from overheating. Other uses include cleaning tools and creating a high-quality finish. It is critical that metal cutting lubricants are stable at high temperatures, have no smell, and are safe to touch. There are four common metal cutting lubricants, including;  

  • solid lubricants 
  • synthetic coolants
  • cutting oil 
  • soluble oil
