The project "Cooling lubricants for wet machining of fiber-reinforced plastics" provided applied research results in order to achieve lower tool wear and increased productivity and thus a cost reduction in the finishing of fiber-reinforced composites through the use of cooling lubricants and, in parallel, to improve occupational safety and machine safety. The focus of the research project was on the development of a cooling lubricant tailored to the machining of fiber-reinforced composites and a machining process adapted to it.
