High performance

Q8 Bach mineral oil-based cutting fluids provide powerful lubricity and incorporate extreme pressure additives. Anti-mist properties minimise the generation of potentially harmful mist and protect employees’ health. The range includes products based on synthetic base oils which deliver high oxidation stability that result in longer fluid change cycles and cleaner machines.

Q8 Bach XNRG bio-lubricants

Developed using the latest generation of additive technology, the Q8 Bach XNRG range outperforms traditional mineral oil-based lubricants and minimises impact on the environment. It delivers superior non-active performance, creates a healthier working environment and is suitable for a broad range of metalworking applications.

Q8 Bach 7000 – super-refined low volatility

Based on the latest technology of high purity synthesised base oils, our new Q8 Bach 7000 cutting and grinding fluids are totally free from polycyclic aromatic compounds, resulting in an advanced safety profile. Low volatility also means a safer working environment, as well as lower consumption.
