Composition / Chemistry
   Chemistry / Constituents:       
   Your choices are...         
   Natural (Vegetable Oil / Animal Fat)       Natural vegetable and plant-based products, such as soybean oils, are a renewable resource and an attractive alternative to mineral oils and synthetic fluids. Some natural oils pose fewer risks to workers and have a reduced environmental impact. 
   Petroleum / Mineral Oil       Products contain petroleum or mineral oil constituents, such as fluids and greases. 
   Synthetic / Semi-synthetic       Synthetic fluids, semi-synthetic fluids or greases are based on synthetic compounds like silicone, polyglycol, esters, diesters, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and mixtures of synthetic fluids and water. Synthetic fluids tend to have the highest fire resistance and cost. They contain no petroleum or mineral oil base, but are instead formulated from organic and inorganic alkaline compounds with additives for corrosion inhibition. Synthetic fluids are generally used in a diluted form with concentrations ranging from 3% to 10%. They often provide the best cooling performance among all cutting fluids. Some synthetics, such as phosphate esters, react or dissolve paint, pipe thread compounds, and electrical insulation. Semi-synthetic fluids are essentially a combination of synthetic and soluble petroleum or mineral oil fluids. The characteristics, cost, and heat transfer performance of semi-synthetic fluids fall between those of synthetic and soluble oil fluids.  
   Silicone       Products contain silicone-based greases, oils, or fluids. Silicone fluids are synthetic and provide outstanding thermal and dielectric properties.   
   PAO / Polyalphaolefin       Polyalphaolefins are synthetic fluids made from olefin or alkene polymer base stocks. Ethylene is an olefin, which is polymerized to make polyethylene polymers. Polyalphaolefin is made by polymerizing an alpha-olefin, an alkene with double carbon bonds. Examples of alpha-olefin are 1-hexane and 1-octene.  Polyalphaolefin fluids are used as lubricants, motor oils, heat transfer fluids, and hydraulic oils, which make use of their very good thermal stability properties. 
   Polyglycol / Water-Glycol       Polyglycol, glycol, polyalkyene glycol (PAG) and water-glycol fluids are synthetics often used for anti-freeze, circulating coolant, and high water content fluid (HWCF) hydraulic applications. Water-glycol solutions tend to have higher viscosity index values than other compositions.  Zinc, cadmium, and magnesium react with water-glycol solutions and should not be used in fluid or coolant systems that contain water-glycol fluids. 
   Polyphenyl ether (PPE) / Ether       Polyether or ether-based fluids, such as phenyl ether polymer or polyphenyl ethers (PPEs), are used in applications requiring very high temperatures, high vacuum, and/or radiation resistant lubricant or fluid. PPEs consist of compounds with two-to-ten benzene rings, which are linked together with ether units. PPEs are used in many aerospace, military, and mission critical applications with demanding performance requirements. Polyvinyl ether (PVE) is a hydrofluorocarbon ether lubricant with excellent performance characteristics. PVE is useful in refrigerant system because PVE is miscible in HFC refrigerants. 
   Ester / Diester       Fluids are based upon phosphate ester, dibasic ester, polyol ester, and silicate ester or diester compounds. Phosphate esters and other synthetic fluids tend to have the highest fire resistance and cost. They are generally used in a diluted form with concentrations from 3% to 10%. Synthetic fluids often provide the best cooling performance among all cutting fluids. Semi-synthetic fluids are combinations of synthetic and soluble petroleum or mineral oil fluids. The characteristics, cost, and heat transfer performance of semi-synthetic fluids falls between those of synthetic and soluble oil fluids. Some synthetics, such as phosphate esters react, or dissolve paint, pipe thread compounds, and electrical insulation. 
   CFC / Chlorofluorocarbon       Fluids are based on halogenated (fluorinated and/or chlorinated) hydrocarbons. Chlorofluorcarbon (CFC), halogenated fluorocarbon (HFC), halogenated chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), and perfluorocarbon (PFC) fluids are included in this group. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted or specialized chemistries.

Properties
   Kinematic Viscosity (@ 40°C)       Kinematic viscosity is the time required for a fixed amount of fluid or oil to flow through a capillary tube under the force of gravity.  Units of kinematic viscosity are stoke, centistoke (1/100 of a stroke) and Saybolt Universal Seconds (SUS). Saybolt Universal Seconds or Saybolt Universal Viscosity (SUV) is the time in seconds required for 60 cubic centimeters of a fluid to flow through the orifice of the standard Saybolt universal viscometer at a given temperature under specified conditions, usually per ASTM D 88.  Kinematic viscosity is also described as the quotient of the absolute viscosity in centipoises divided by the specific gravity of a fluid where both are measured at the same temperature. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Operating / Use Temperature       The operating temperature range for the fluid, oil, grease, or lubricant. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Pour Point       Pour point is the lowest point that fluid or oil flows. Pour is typically determined using ASTM D 97. Generally, the pour point is 15° F to 20° F below the system's lowest end-use temperature to prevent pump damage through cavitation. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Flash Point       Flash point is the lowest temperature that a liquid can give off sufficient vapors to form an ignitable mixture in air near the surface of the liquid. The lower the flash point, the easier it is to ignite the material. The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) defines a flammable liquid as "any liquid having a flash point below 100° F (37.8° C), except any mixture having components with flash points of 100° F (37.8° C) or higher, the total of which make up 99 percent or more of the total volume of the mixture. Flammable liquids shall be known as Class I liquids." Fire point and autogenous ignition (AIT) are additional properties to consider in applications requiring fire resistant fluids. Fire point is the lowest temperature at which a liquid can give off sufficient vapors to form a mixture in air that continuously supports combustion after ignition near the surface of the liquid.  Autogenous ignition (AIT) is the temperature at which ignition occurs spontaneously.
