Hard metals such as tungsten carbide contain significant amounts of cobalt in their make-up. It has been shown that if released into the work place, cobalt poses a health hazard to machine operators. If conventional synthetic grinding fluids are used to grind carbides, cobalt is automatically released into the fluid and builds up to harmful levels.
The Morris Supergrind CG is a specially developed water miscible fluid free from boron, amines and nitrite designed to overcome this effect and to prevent and/or suppress the dissolution of cobalt. When used as directed, the product is capable of suppressing dissolved cobalt to extremely low levels (a fraction of a part per million in solution) to protect the operative from harmful exposure.
It is recommended that cobalt levels in the fluid are monitored regularly and maintained at levels below those considered safe by the authorities.
Made for use in the initial grinding and re-grinding in all areas of carbide tooling which includes carbide inserts, end mills, tipped saw blades, drill tips etc. As a flood coolant, it enables the inhibitor systems to work correctly. A working strength must be maintained at between 2-4%.
