Technical Committee Lubricants

Application of the latest cooling lubricants for fiber composites

The completed research project deals with the development of a
cooling lubricant for the milling of stack materials, which can be
typically made from a composite of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) and
metals. A benchmark test was designed for this purpose, which
process and evaluates component quality, tool wear, cleanability and suitability for coating with paints as well as adhesion. With regard to the development of cooling lubricants, various combinations of systems such as emulsion or solution as well as different base materials and additives are being researched and investigated with regard to their monitoring of microbiology and additive discharge and maintenance such as through filtration during the machining of stack materials.
