RODS HB5 Soluble Cutting Oil is a heavy duty, extreme pressure, biostable soluble cutting oil designed to provide high performance for machining metals, ranging from stainless and high alloy steels, to low carbon steels, brass and aluminium.

HB5 derives its performance from a synergistic blend of high lubricity additives which help to provide the user with a coolant capable of meeting demanding requirements in terms of surface finish and tool life.

In addition, HB5 is designed to totally reject the tramp oils which degrade most conventional soluble oils. HB5 produces a highly stable, semi-translucent emulsion which provides a very clean working environment and which also tolerates hard waters and is low foaming in soft waters. The emulsion will resist degradation by microbial contamination for long periods and because of its excellent anti-corrosion properties HB5 can be used over a wide dilution range.

Field trials of HB5 have shown that it is not aggressive to operators’ skin and is a safe and pleasant coolant to work with.
