Filmac E12L is a low viscosity neat oil treated with EP and lubricity additives that helps the cutting action and improves surface finish.


Filmac E12L is the recommended product for all finish work, precision grinding operations such as form, profile and thread grinding where fine cuts are employed to give high surface finishes. The product is also recommended for honing operations using all grit sizes, including those incorporating diamond materials.

Filmac E12L has been used with great success for deep hole drilling.

Features and Benefits

Balanced formulation

Abrasive wheels and stones are kept clean, minimising clogging, glazing, and skidding on the workpiece. Additionally Filmac E12L is formulated with an EP agent and lubricity package that helps the cutting action and improves surface finish.

Superior cutting performance

The EP contained in Filmac E12L allows for far higher cutting performance than traditional paraffin based products, and it produces a better finish than is possible with emulsion based products, additionally the EP is only active at the point of stone to metal contact, therefore it will not stain or corrode copper alloy machine parts.

High Heat Removal

The low viscosity of Filmac E12L gives high flow rates whilst minimising splashing so that high rates of heat removal and chip flushing are possible.

Packing, Storage and Handling

The product should be stored inside in a cool dry place, avoid temperature extremes. Normally safe in use, however reference should be made to the relevant Material Safety Data Sheet
