Castrol CareCut ES 3


Castrol CareCut ES 3 High Performance Metalworking Neat Cutting Oil


Castrol Care Cut ES 3 is a low viscosity, chlorine and heavy metal-free neat cutting oil based on advanced biodegradable ester technology. It is specially formulated with superior ash-less boundary lubrication additives to optimize machining performance, enhance surface finish and lower the overall operating costs. It can be used in single sump machines and large central systems.


Care Cut ES 3 is designed for severe honing and superfinishing of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. It can also be used for grinding applications, drilling and general machining of aluminium, yellow metals, cast iron and medium alloyed steel. Care Cut ES 3 can also be used for hard metal as well as tool grinding. Care Cut ES 3 does not contain active Sulphur and is hence compatible with yellow metals.
