Metalworking Fluids


Coolant Concentrates


Our bio-stable technology has evolved from the high quality emulsifiable oils (high oil content) into semi-synthetic (low oil content) and full synthetics (no oil content). Hangsterfer’s only uses highly refined, ultra-pure ingredients. All of Hangsterfer’s Coolant Concentrates are formulated with advanced technologies, which utilize synthetic, vegetable and petroleum components.


Cutting Oils


Hangsterfer’s Cutting Oils are recognized by Swiss-style screw machine manufacturers around the world. Hard-Cut has improved tool life and surface qualities by as much as 300%. In addition to the lubricity provided at the cutting zone, our cutting oils provide excellent lubrication for the machine’s slides, guide bushings, bearings, and spindles. Some can even be used in bar feeders. Hangsterfer’s Hard-Cut and Hard-Cut Next Generation® Series are formulated with the industry’s safest chlorinated extreme pressure additives. Our Missile Lube Series is both chlorine and sulfur free. No matter what the requirement, Hangsterfer’s has a cutting oil solution.


Metalforming Compounds


Our “grease-like” metalforming compounds are highly fortified with additives that prevent metal-to-metal contact at the tool-workpiece interface where temperatures can exceed 1000° C. Elastrohydrodynamic Lubrication (EHL) forms an evenly distributed film that eliminates galling and improves surface quality. It develops under extreme pressure from our use of long-chain chlorinated paraffins, select synthetic fat and synthetic oils. We specialize in forming and drawing compounds for tube, rod, wire, bar and blanks. Hangsterfer’s can custom blend products for whatever unique metalforming application you may have.


Machine Lubricants


Nearly 30 years ago, Hangsterfer’s developed “coolant compatible” machine lubricants that do not cause negative coolant effects such as odor, staining and dermatitis. Our unique “coolant compatible” formulation allows the oil to remain on the sliding surface in a completely fluid-like state, thus protecting the surface more effectively than old technology. Water is repelled which improves lubrication and prevents corrosion. Once you perform the easy conversion to our Way Oil series you will immediately see the benefits.


Dielectric Fluid


Crystal Brite was developed to improve the spark erosion process in sinker style EDM machines. It has allowed users to increase amperage, thus reducing process times by as much as 30%. Also, it creates a non-conductive channel allowing the spark to hit its target accurately and at a full charge. It reduces carbonization, which reduces gummy residue. V-EDM is the first of its kind vegetable based dielectric fliud.


Miscellaneous Products


Rust Inhibitors are available in both aqueous and non-aqueous varieties. We have products for very short term, as well as long-term protection. Aqueous cleaners are available in a variety of detergency and pH ranges depending on the cleaning objectives. We also offer non-aqueous cleaning solvents, which are ozone friendly. Specialty Additives are used for the easy correction of in-process errors or for making adjustments needed to compensate for engineering changes.


TSP Equipment


Total System Partnership® (TSP) is the Hangsterfer’s division, which supplies basic yet functional equipment that aids in the longevity of metalworking fluids. “Walk before you run” and “keep it simple” form the basis of the TSP philosophy. Since our lubricants are engineered to be recycled, it makes sense to partner them with basic fluid management equipment. Adding TSP products to your operations will help reduce fluid related costs.
