Minimum Quantity Lubrication: Lubricants

UNIST's proprietary Coolube products are premium quality, vegetable-based lubricants that deliver superior performance in machining and cutting applications. These highly refined, biodegradable fluids are specially formulated to work with ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Because it is a premium quality lubricant, the price of a gallon of Coolube is higher than conventional lubricants. However, Coolube is actually cheaper by the drop than messy flood and mist-type lubricants.


Coolube improves work environment; lowers other manufacturing costs:

  • Non-polluting: biodegradable; eliminates disposal costs

  • Non-toxic: contains no chlorine, silicones or petroleum products; safe for workers to handle

  • Non-hazardous: eliminates air-borne mist particles and related health issues

  • Non-drying; non-staining: reduces scrap metal

  • Promotes longer tool life

  • Performs especially well under extreme pressure and in heavy-duty cutting operations

  • Increases production speed

  • Minimizes or eliminates exit burrs, oversize holes and rough finishes; reduces cost of reworking parts

  • Lets you plate, paint or seal over a surface after a detergent, warm water or cleaning cycle because there is so little residue.

Saves production steps; does not require:

  • coolant testing

  • coolant treatment

  • tool coatings

  • high pressure systems

  • electric pumps

  • high pressure flood systems

  • Produces clean, dry chips

  • Reduces housekeeping time; cleans up with warm water and soap solution

  • Food-safe formula available

  • Saves floor space


Use Coolube correctly in the proper amounts and it will yield the lowest net manufacturing cost of any lubricating fluid.
