  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
  • Product Data Sheets (PDS)

Mobilmet 440 Series fluids are high performance, multi-service, non-corrosive straight cutting fluids. They are designed for moderate to heave duty cutting operations. They are also suitable for machine tool lubrication and use as hydraulic fluids in specific applications. They are formulated from high quality base oils and chlorine-free additives to provide effective machine performance in a wide variety of moderate to severe operations. They are non-staining to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals during machining. Mobilet 440 Series fluids are formulated to prevent the formation of oil mist in the vicinity of the machine tool, thus contributing to a safer and more pleasant working environment.
