    Default Tool-X coolant?

    Top of the morning!

    Does anyone have any experience with Tool-X coolant? Our shop is getting into titanium work and one of our tooling salesman recommended we try tool-x. He claims that some of his customers have had great success with this product. We're currently using Hysol MB50, which has been a great product for us.

    Never heard of Tool X (that's not necessarily a bad thing). Who is your tooling salesman? Are they getting a commission to recommend that brand?

    If you're shopping around, you could try Metalworking Lubricants out of Pontiac, they send a rep out.

    We're currently using Adrem. It's.... ok. Been using it for a few years,and now all of a sudden all of our machines stink like crazy for some reason.

    I'm using Hangsterfers S787D in Ti with good results. Never gets stinky.

    Every coolant type claims great success... never heard of these guys, but then we've probably never heard of 3/4 of the magical coolant brands on there...
    With Ti I believe you have to watch that it not be chlorinated coolant or something like that.

    Tool X is from the same guys that make Rain X. They're boasting about they're product being "nano tech" and double tool life yada yada... I'm sure we've all heard the same pitch. It was not recommended to me so I'm not sure about the salesman getting kick back or not.

    So far we've been extremely happy with our Hysol MB50 and we get a great price on it. Castrol claims the product was designed for TI. & Sounds like you may have some fungi or bacteria growth. We switched from Blaser to Castrol because of the amount of growth and the stench you'd get in a short amount of time. so far so good with the castrol.

    Looks like a semi-synthetic, similar to our Hysol. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Right, I'm on the same page. They all boast to have the same qualities.
