Honing Oil with Low-VOC Formulation

"Sunnen Products SHO-965 honing oil has a super-compliant, low-odor, low-VOC formulation, based on its most widely used general-purpose oil, MB-30, and exceeds the strictest standards of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD)," said a company spokesperson.

"The SHO-965 oil has a more pleasant odor, yet retains all of the high-performance qualities of Sunnen's MB-30 honing oil, including maximum cutting rates and increased abrasive life when honing difficult materials like stainless steel. These fluids are the `lifeblood' of Sunnen machines, and combined with our tools and abrasives, they help produce the best finishes we have seen," said Chuck Korn, Product Engineer at Sunnen.

According to the company, SHO-965 is highly versatile, working on virtually any metal from aluminum to zirconium, and effective as a general cutting oil for screw machines, drilling, tapping and reaming. Its long service life also helps decrease cost per part, since it can last up to one year under the right conditions.

"Our testing and the feedback we have received from the field indicate SHO-965 oil performs as well as MB-30 with much lower VOC content," added Korn. "To meet the strictest environmental standards, we lowered the vapor pressure of the new oil by replacing the base oil with highly engineered petroleum and organic oils. Reduced VOC fluids are a trend globally, so we are meeting the contemporary needs of the metalworking industry by reducing the environmental impact of our fluids without sacrificing performance."

SHO-965 joins Sunnen's planet friendly oils SHO-500, MAN-863 and KG3X. The new oil is available in 5-gallon (18.9 l) pails, 55-gallon (208.2 l) drums and 330-gallon (1,249 l) totes.
