Water Soluble/Water Extendable Cutting and Grinding Fluids



Conventional Soluble Oils <Go to Datafile>

Maxim soluble oils provide excellent corrosion protection for machined parts in-process; as well short term protection on finished parts during post production and indoor storage.  Their effective biostatic system make Maxim Conventional Soluble Oils highly resistant to microbial degradation/rancidity and therefore a great choice for both central systems and individual machine sumps.  Please contact your Maxim representative for product recommendations to your specific application.


Heavy Duty (EP) Soluble Oils

Maxim offers the "DURASOL" line of heavy duty, metalworking fluids for difficult machining applications where a premium, high EP soluble oil is desired.  These products incorporate blends of extreme pressure additives and friction modifiers in the compounded soluble system to provide exceptional performance characteristics in a variety of difficult machining operations on both ferrous and non-ferrous materials.


When mixed with water, these premium soluble oils form stable, white/opaque  emulsions that exhibit excellent cooling properties for superior finishes and increased tool-life.  Like our conventional soluble oils; the DURASOL Premium Heavy Duty soluble oils offer excellent corrosion protection for machined parts in-process; as well short term protection on finished parts during post production and indoor storage.


The DURASOL soluble mix easily in both hard and soft water and remain fluid in and on the surfaces of the machining center allowing slideways, chucks, and tooling to work freely without a hard-to clean dry or sticky residue.  The biostatic system formulated into this line of Maxim metalworking fluids affords a much higher resistance to microbial degradation and rancidity than most soluble oils. They have all earned high marks in operator acceptance and overall operating and maintenance cost.  The following products are our  most popular choices in Emulsifiable oils of this type:

Durasol 1000 A/ AV

premium soluble oil formulated free of chlorine / active sulfur.

Durasol 737 APS 

premium dual purpose soluble oil containing chlorine and sulfur.

Durasol 747 HD Sol.

high sulfur content,  recommended for tapping and  broaching applications.

Durasol 767 HDS

premium soluble oil containing high content of sulfur and chlorine.

Note :  Some defense contracts restrict the use of  chlorine of any kind  in metalworking fluids applicable to suspect corrosively on particular types of  machined parts. These oils do not contain "corrosive" chlorines but may be subject to various stipulations. 

For chlorine -free products with similar performance characteristics,  please see Maxim's  Semi-Synthetic Line of premium metalworking fluids including the "MAXUS" line of new generation, chemically compatible,  high performance metalworking fluids.  Your Maxim representative can make product recommendations to your specific application.



With continuing effort in the development of metalworking fluid systems and their components;  we at Maxim have established ourselves on the 'Cutting Edge' of metalworking technology.  Maxim's Semi-Synthetic line of metalworking fluids are by far our most popular; finding acceptance by performance and beneficial serviceability in the broadest spectrum of applications including those previously limited to the use of synthetics and soluble oils.

In 2003, Maxim introduced the " Maxus" line of  metalworking fluids.  These coolants exhibit excellent cooling properties and extreme pressure lubricity to provide extended tool life.  They are water-extendable; and at 3-10%, remain opaque,  absorbing  only a small amount of tramp oils in use.

Maxim Semi-Synthetics remain fluid in and on the surfaces of the machining center allowing slide ways, chucks and tooling to work freely without a hard-to-clean dry or sticky residue.  These features, along with their excellent resistance to microbial degradation and rancidity yield a longer coolant life in machine sumps and central coolant systems without special maintenance procedures. 

Maxim's standard and "Maxus" line of new generation metalworking fluid are formulated for enhanced environmental acceptance and have earned high marks in operator acceptance. 

Your Maxim representative can make product recommendations to your specific application.

Please select the following products for more information on Maxus Premium metalworking fluids:

MAXUS NXT Premium Metalworking Fluid


MAXUS GS8 Premium Cutting and Grinding Fluid






Maxim manufactures a line of water extendable, oil rejecting, polyalkaline glycol based synthetic cutting and grinding fluids to perform exceptionally in a variety of machine operations.  


Maxim Synthetics reject tramp oils and remain fluid in and on the surfaces of the machining center allowing slide ways, chucks, and tooling to work freely without a hard-to-clean residue.  These coolants retain their oil rejecting characteristics in both soft and hard water;  an excellent choice for central coolant recovery systems where un-diminishing filterability and tramp oil separation is a contingency for favorable fluid recovery. 


All Maxim Synthetic metalworking fluids are formulated free of silicon, chlorine and diethanolamine for higher environmental and operator acceptance.

Heat Treating Products


Quench Oils

Duratherm G is a premium quality high speed quench oil that exhibits a GM Quenchometer speed of 10-12 seconds( Ni ball).




Maxim  manufactures no salts for heat treating applications.  However;  Maxim represents Heatbath Park Metalurgical Corp. in Springfield, Ma  for salt bath applications including; quenching, hardening, tempering, case hardening, etc.



Polymer Quenchants

POLYMAX 'A" is a concentrated aqueous solution of polyalkalene glycol and corrosion inhibitors.  At room temperature, the organic polymer in POLYMAX A is completely soluble in water forming a homogeneous solution.  The polymer becomes less soluble with increasing temperature and separates from the water as a discrete water insoluble phase at temperatures above 165deg.F.

This polymer-rich phase forms on the surface of hot metal parts being quenched in the bath solution of Polymax 'A'.  The thickness of this polymer-water gel film, which retards the heat transfer between the work piece and quench solution, depends mainly on the concentration of polymer in the quench bath and determines its quench effect ( other factors include bath temperature and agitation).

By means of proper selection of concentration, bath temperature, and rate of agitation,  the quench effect of Polymax 'A' solutions can be controlled over a very wide range:  From the effect of water; to cooling speeds much slower than quench oils.  Polymax 'A' is much cleaner than quench oils and eliminates fire hazards.

Polymax 'A' is available nitrite inhibited or with a non-nitrite corrosion inhibitor.

Also see PARQUENCH 90 for a compatible "PVP" quenchant.

Your Maxim representative can make product recommendations to your specific application.
