The new Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) cutting and grinding oils are from the latest generation of machining oils. In the GTL manufacturing process, natural gas is converted into an extremely pure, synthetic oil. This process ensures that the oil is free from organic nitrogen, heavy metals, zinc and chlorine compounds.
The resulting GTL products form the OEMETOL GT range of oils. They are characterised by a very high flash point and low emissions. These qualities ensure good occupational safety, and lower consumption. Compared to conventional mineral or hydrocracked oils, the higher lubricating performance and low foaming behaviour of the GTL oils, reduce wear and improve process reliability.
