The thing you should be aware of before purchase Aluminum Cutting Fluid
When processing aluminum, there are few tips to ensure a successful and efficient machining process to get a bright mirror finish. Aluminum is a versatile and widely used metal, but its unique properties require careful consideration.
Aluminum alloys, also known as AI, have many grades which are used in wide applications. Aluminum alloy is a lightweight silvery white metal that has high strength and is easy to process, and all grades of aluminum are highly machinable. Among them, 7075 aluminum is extremely popular in structural components like airplane wing spars and bike frames. And mostly aluminum alloys are usually used in car body plates, auto body sheet metal parts, mechanical parts, tubes,etc.
Aluminum can have a tendency to stick to cutting tools. Using a suitable cutting fluid or lubricant can help reduce friction and prolong tool life. You can consider water-soluble or synthetic coolants for aluminum.
BUT, how to select cutting fluid for aluminum alloys? Basically, cutting fluids are generally compounding mineral oil and multi additives to stable pH level, lubricating and performances. Hai Lu Jya He, we offer a few types of eco-cutting fluids and neat cutting oils for your reference as below which have superior anti-corrosion property, lubricity, great chip flushing, and excellent cutting performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
• What are the common problems during aluminum processing?
Aluminum alloy is an extremely sensitive material to pH scale. The chemical properties of aluminum are relatively active. It is easy to oxidize in air and acid / alkaline environment that caused rust, corrosion, and odor smell.
Therefore, the pH of aluminum alloy cutting fluid should not be too high. The added anti-rust agent needs to have the ability of corrosion inhibition and maintaining pH value stability. The cutting fluid should have excellent biological stability, corrosion resistance, long service life, not easy to stink.
• Why the aluminum chips are so easy to stick to the tools?
Aluminum alloy is a soft material that has high ductility. In high-speed cutting, the cutting heat can be quickly extended to the workpiece that caused chips to stick to the tools, resulting in the tool lose the cutting ability, machining accuracy, and surface roughness being influenced and form chip accretion.
It will block the cutting area, making the cutting process difficult. At the same time, the cut debris is difficult to be taken away by the cutting fluid. That is why the lubricating and cooling of cutting fluid are so important to aluminum alloy.
