Glass Grinding Fluids
SUPER•CUT glass grinding coolant, a SUPER•CUT glass grinding coolant

increased diamond wheel life. The coolant actively helps
reduce surface scratching, edge chipping and rejects
through the oven, by providing a protective lubrication
film for the surface of the part during the grinding
Low power consumption
With its innovative lubrication package, the SUPER•CUT
coolant provides significantly lower overall power
consumption at the wheel - glass interface. In most
tempering operations, lower power requirements are
equated to lower rejects through the tempering ovens.
Lower power at the diamond substrate interface also
equates to better glass edge finish and longer wheel life.
Extremely high removal rates
The SUPER•CUT coolant offers extremely high volumes
of glass stock removal while maintaining both glass edge
quality and extended wheel life. This is important when
the cut size of glass varies, requiring the ability to
remove more glass at the same line speed without
developing burns, edge chips and/or diminished wheel
life. Controlled testing has been shown to provide as
much as a 30% increase in removal rates over
conventional glass and ceramic grinding fluids.
The SUPER•CUT coolant is formulated with a very
efficient settling additive package. This package will
allow the glass fines to settle out of the solution in a
controlled manner thus eliminating build up in return
lines and on machine parts. When it is time to clean
settling tanks and automatic swarf removal equipment,
the residue can be either shovel out or simply washed
out with a water hose. The coolant is compatible with
Centrifuge separation systems, Henry type settling tank
systems and Decanter systems.

Coolant system maintenance
Coolant should be checked daily for:
- Level of solids in a central system should be monitored
and adjusted daily with additions of flocculant
- Biological activity should be examined weekly in spring
and summer, monthly in winter.

maintenance program so as to optimize your coolant
usage and benefits at no cost to the end user.
For those users requiring special performance in the areas
of increased line speeds, extended wheel life, or swarf
removal, the SUPER•CUT coolant may be modified to
meet your requirements on a custom formulation basis.
