Habcool 318 SuperTapping Oil

An economical answer to the machining of problem metals

Recommended by the leading tap and die manufacturers in the United States and Canada for tapping, threading and production machining for all alloys. HABCOOL 318, a compound of many ingredients, is constantly upgraded to keep pace with metallurgical developments.

Habcool 318 is a high quality extreme pressure metal cutting lubricant

with effective load carrying properties and superior anti-weld ingredients.

  • No volatile solvents - HABCOOL 318 tapping oil contains no solvents to evaporate your cutting oil dollars.
  • Safe to use - The same handling practices used with any petroleum oil are satisfactory with HABCOOL 318.
  • High flash test - A high flash minimizes fire hazards.
  • Transparent - HABCOOL 318 will not hide the work-piece, yet clings to tool and job to insure constant lubrication.
  • Will not discolor metals - Even on copper only slight discoloration is evident after immersion for 15-20 hours.
  • Cannot harm machines - The base of HABCOOL 318 is a high quality machine oil designed to eliminate bearing problems should penetration of cutting oil into the lube oil system occur.

HABCOOL 318 is extremely versatile,

and not limited to one particular operation.

  • Tapping
  • Thread Rolling
  • Drilling
  • Reaming
  • Cold Forming
  • Milling
  • Drawing
  • Broaching
  • Thread Milling
  • General Machining

Habcool 318 as a Cutting Oil Base

HABCOOL 318 is normally used full strength, and applied by brush or pour spout can to the tap or chaser. An exceptional cutting oil for use in bar machines and chuckers can be easily and inexpensively made by adding HABCOOL 318 to a light mineral oil in a proportion suitable to the toughness of the metal being machined. As an example: Many metal working plants are blending their cutting oils using mineral oil of 150-200 viscosity SSU blended with HABCOOL 318 tapping oil. For production machining in turret lathes, automatic tappers, screw machines, chuckers, etc. HABCOOL 318 tapping oil is recommended to be blended at 25% to 50% by volume depending upon the machinability of the material and the severity of the machining operations involved. A proper combination of HABCOOL tapping oil and mineral oil will reduce heat and friction and allow an increase in cutting speeds and feeds.

Experienced Technical Service

is available at any time to help solve your problems. Please call 973-664-0144. Experienced field personnel will be glad to cooperate with your firm on any problem.

It should be remembered that cutting oils are not a cure-all. Proper tooling, accurately ground and honed, together with the correct speeds and feeds should be established first. With these conditions met, cutting lubricants of the right type will make the difference between a poor job and an outstanding and economical one.
