3 Reasons Not to Use Oil-Based Metalworking Fluids

While developing a top-of-the-line metalworking fluid, NuGenTec considered the benefits of synthetic versus oil-based metalworking fluids and found that synthetic fluids are far more user-friendly. Here are the top three reasons to choose synthetic metalworking fluids.

1  Oil Disposal 

Proper disposal of oil-based metalworking fluids is difficult, time-consuming and costly over time.  NuGenTec developed NuKut MD1, a synthetic metalworking fluid, which can be disposed without any hazmat concerns.  Users save time, money, and a logistical headache when switching to non-hazardous, synthetic metalworking fluids like NuKut MD1.

2  Flammability

Oil-based metalworking fluids create a hazardous work environment.  Oils are flammable and can pose a significant workplace hazard. Dealing in hazardous chemicals is, itself, a regulated hassle, even if nothing goes wrong.  In order to keep workplaces safer and reduce hazardous chemicals, NuGenTec developed NuKut MD1 without flammable materials.

3  Health Risks

Employees who have repeated exposure to hazardous oil-based metalworking fluids develop adverse symptoms.  Oil-based metalworking fluids are known to cause dermatitis and skin sensitization, which can be wholly avoided when using NuKut MD1 synthetic metalworking fluid.
