Cutting Lube Increases Tool Life

Hougen Manufacturing, Inc., a manufacturer of magnetic drills and annular cutters, offers its RotaGel cutting lube. "In most metalworking applications, nothing is more important than proper tool lubrication. RotaGel cutting lube is an industrial lubricant that provides enhanced protection to the cutting tool even in hard, high torque machining applications," said a company spokesperson.

RotaGel cutting lube is designed to be an environmentally safe lubricate because its core ingredients are based off of a food grade lubricant. It is non-toxic and biodegradable.

With the consistency of a creamy gel, RotaGel has properties that help it adhere to the tool and reduce friction throughout the cut. Because it is formulated with a Hougen blue color, it allows the operator to consistently gauge where the lubricant is applied and visually assures thorough coverage. It is designed for use on all metals including: carbon steel, stainless steel, Inconel, Hastalloy, titanium, aluminum and other alloys and exotics. RotaGel is a versatile cutting lubricant designed for maximum lubrication and increased tool life with many different applications and tools. Example of applications include: annular cutters, taps, drills, saws, reamers, endmills, general lubrication and more. Not only does RotaGel provide lubrication to cutting tools, it can also improve hole and surface finishes.

RotaGel is available in single net weight 8 oz. (227 g) tubes or in a case of 10 tubes. The product is made in the USA.
