Castrol Magna™ SW DX Range (previously called Magnaglide™ DX 68 and DX 220) have excellent demulsifying and adhesive properties. This combination prevents mixing with water miscible cutting fluids and also prevents extrusion and/or washing off of the lubricating film during use with water miscible cutting fluids. Stick slip movements are avoided even with high loads, which can impair the tool slide working accuracy.
Magna SW DX Range have constant glide behaviour, excellent adhesion (for horizontal and vertically guide ways), good wear protection as well as the excellent corrosion protection and ageing resistance.
Magna SW DX Range are suitable for lubrication of slideways and guides on tool machines.
These products are especially suitable for plastic coated guideways.
With use of Magna SW DX Range, possible swelling of the plastics won't occur like they can with use of conventional, non-demulsifying slideway oils.
