Product Description

Mobilcut is the trademark for Mobil Industrial lubricants line of high performance water miscible metal removal fluids. Formulated with leading edge base oils, additives, and emulsifiers, the Mobilcut series of non-chlorinated products provides dependable performance in a wide array of metal removal processes. The products are designed to work in a variety of hard and soft water qualities and offer low foam potential and long-term corrosion protection for machine and components. Low maintenance and inherently stable, Mobilcut products are designed for the modern machine shop where long service life, excellent machining performance and health and environmental concerns are important factors for increased productivity. These products are supplied in concentrated form and require mixing with water at the point of use. All Mobilcut products are free of formaldehyde release agents (FAD).


Mobilcut 230 is a high performance semi-synthetic fluid that readily emulsifies in water to form a stable micro-emulsion. The product is designed for a wide range of water qualities and is resistant to foaming, even in high pressure systems. Mobilcut 230 is suitable for a range of applications on both ferrous and non ferrous alloys making it an ideal choice when consolidating metal working fluids.  The product offers extended coolant life relative to conventional soluble oils when properly maintained while maintaining a high degree of machining performance.
