What Does It Take
to Hit Production Targets
for Aluminum Machining?

A lubricious, pH stable cutting fluid
that operates clean … is long on service life,
and low on maintenance

Acculube recommends Castrol Alusol XBB Series for machining aluminum and low-to-medium alloyed steel. This unique formula delivers exceptional performance over time, without additives. It also:

  • Keeps pH at a constant level, neutralizing up to 33% more acidic material
  • Helps prevent swarf build-up
  • Significantly increases drain intervals
  • Works without boron or formaldehyde-releasing agents
  • Supports good sump health, preventing infections and odors
  • Can save up to 30% in fluid top-ups
  • Contributes to a safer, healthier work environment

Alusol XBB Series helps automotive and other aluminum machining shops run cleaner with fewer stoppages, avoid filter blockage and reduce overall fluid consumption. In addition to aluminum, it is ideal for low to medium alloyed steel, and is suitable for both central systems and single-sump machines.

Castrol Alusol SL 51 XBB maintains pH at a constant level and assures constant productivity for longer than standard aluminum cutting fluids. It has been shown to neutralize up to 33% more acidic material. It provides an extended fluid life, meaning fewer interventions and reduced downtime.

Castrol’s XBB technology delivers long-lasting performance and stable operating conditions – improving your productivity – without boron or formaldehyde-releasing agents.

Designed for Soft Water

Castrol Alusol SL 61 XBB reduces foaming in soft water conditions.

In laboratory tests, it was proven to maintain a stable pH up to 44% longer than other cutting fluids, without the use of boron or formaldehyde-releasing agents.

Catrol Alusol SL 61 XBB neutralizes up to 44% more acidic material than conventional alternatives. It is ideal for multipurpose machining of aluminum alloys and low to medium alloyed steel, and is suitable for both large central systems and single pump machines.
