Rocol-RTD lubricant for cutting applications

With 65 years of development and innovation, ROCOL RTD remains at the forefront in cutting performance, successfully serving the needs of the industry. The RTD range of hand applied cutting lubricants has a unique formulation, providing superior performance across a range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

RTD “doubles tool life” and in some cases can provide up to a 400% increased productivity compared to similar products*. Laboratory testing has shown that RTD offers up to 5 times more anti-wear protection than other products, extending tool life and improving surface finish ensuring the quality of the finished workpiece.

During the production processes, damage and breakage can mean significant cost increases - using RTD helps to minimise these risks and allows the Precision Engineer to Cut with confidence.
