Description

Castrol Variocut™ C Moly Dee (previously named Moly Dee CF Tapping Fluid) is a high performance tapping fluid that improves threading accuracy, extends tool life, improves surface finishes and increases production. Variocut C Moly Dee is suggested for use on most metals, including aluminum, titanium and steel. It is especially effective on difficult to machine metals such as stainless steel and aerospace alloys.

Application
Used straight, Variocut C Moly Dee should be applied directly to the tool/workpiece interface from a spout-top can or other applicator. Used as an additive with straight cutting oils, it should be poured into a high agitation area in the machine sump. Add approximately one gallon of Variocut C Moly Dee to every ten gallons of conventional cutting oils.
Variocut C Moly Dee is recommended for use on most metals including aluminum, titanium and steel. It can stain copper or copper alloys if not removed following use.
This product is not water soluble and should not be mixed with water soluble oils or synthetic coolants. Consult your Castrol Sales Engineer for questions regarding compatibility.

Advantages
Outstanding thermal and chemical stability means improved threading performance. This resistance to breakdown allows adherence to closer tolerances and provides smoother, more accurate threads
The molybdenum disulfide withstands pressures up to 400,000 psi, which is beyond the yield point of any known metal. This reduces metal-to-metal contact and results in longer tool life
Contains selected extreme pressure additives, including sulfur and MoS2 that promote optimum metal cutting performance and improved surface finishes.
The synergistic combination of friction reducing lubricants and chemical activity permits faster speeds and increases production.
