Metal cutting product category options
Coolants are water soluble fluids designed to provide cooling and lubrication during metalworking operations. The use of coolant extends cutting tool life, improves part finish and tolerance, and improves productivity. Coolants are generally grouped into three major categories: soluble oils, semi-synthetics, and synthetics. Ashburn’s APEX line of coolants utilizes the latest technologies to develop leading-edge products. APEX products are developed to provide the highest level of performance and operator safety at an optimal operating cost.
In this product line are:
- Soluble Oils
Coolant Additives and Maintenance Equipment
Coolant additives are not usually needed when Ashburn coolants are properly maintained and operating in a good environment. However, there are situations where a coolant is allowed to sit stagnant or operate in a poor environment for extended periods of time. In these situations it may be necessary to use additives to bring the coolant back to the correct specifications.
Coolant maintenance equipment is necessary to ensure that your coolant continues to perform optimally. Correctly mixing the coolant, maintaining the concentration, and keeping the coolant free of contaminants are the basic necessities of proper coolant maintenance.

Straight Cutting Oils
Tapping and Drilling Fluids
Ashburn’s Mike-O-Lube cutting fluids are designed for use with micro-lubricant applicators. These non-misting applicators dispense individual droplets of fluid directly to the cutting tool. Mike-O-Lube cutting fluids are a clean and economical alternative to misting and flooding in applications such as drilling, tapping and sawing.
Layout Inks & Removers
Mike-O-Blue Layout Inks provide a smooth, dark, non-glare coating to metal surfaces for creating highly visible, precision scribe lines and cutting surfaces. The inks are easily removed with Ashburn Layout Ink remover. These fluids are excellent for tool and die makers, pattern makers, sheet metal shops, gear alignment and production layout.
