Metalworking Oils

For over 130 years, the Zurn Oil Company has been producing high quality oils for use in all types of metalworking operations such as tapping, drilling, heading, stamping, cutting, gear hobbing, rolling, quenching, grinding, etc. and in all methods of lubricant application such as, brush on, flood, spray, and micro-drop.

Our line of metalworking lubricants are formulated using high quality petroleum base stocks with the addition of EP additives, fatty compounds, etc. to provide excellent tool life and finishes. Other components can also be added, imparting anti welding characteristics, anti foaming or anti-misting properties. By blending products with varying viscosities, Zurn’s metalworking oils can achieve maximum heat dissipation and simultaneously superior metalworking performance resulting in higher speeds and feeds.

Vegetable-based metalworking fluids are now being utilized to replace mineral oil- based products in some applications exhibiting superior finishes, tool life, etc. Our Zurnkut SXP series of products are formulated without chlorine to provide comparable tool life to chlorine based cutting fluids even on difficult to machine metals and stainless steels. Zurn’s product line also includes additives to boost existing metalworking oils, ease removability, lessen misting, lighten color and foaming and many other attributes to maximize results and improve employee acceptance.

Many of our metalworking products were custom designed to fulfill a specific customer need allowing them to compete in today’s global economy.
