Soluble Coolants

Quaker Houghton Aquacut MB

A biostable metalforming coolant for section rolling operations


AQUACUT MB is a fully biostable high oil content metalforming fluid, producing a milky/semi translucent emulsion when mixed with water. It has been developed to meet the lubricity and corrosion performance criteria of conventionally coupled milky type soluble oils, whilst its unique biostable base additive technology eliminates the need for phenolic couplers or added biocide systems.AQUACUT MB has a substantially increased service life when compared with conventionally formulated high oil content emulsions and tolerance to poor working conditions is also much greater.


The high oil content of AQUACUT MB aids lubrication of rolls and resists metal pick up in section rolling operations whilst also assisting in machine tool lubrication and contact corrosion protection. It is suitable for the rolling of sections in galvanised materials and gives good protection against galvanic debris sticking to the rolls and minimises incidence of staining.


o Biostable formulation for extended sump life
o Improved lubricity and extended roll life
o High degree of machine tool lubrication
o Good resistance to corrosion and zinc staining
o Excellent operator acceptability
o Good EHS profile: free of Triazine
