A neat low viscosity tapping oil incorporating chlorine based EP additives for use on high tensile low machineabilty materials.

Product description

Filmac VC5 is based on a solvent refined naturally occurring low viscosity vegetable oil with good temperature stability and high viscosity index.

The product contains chlorine extreme pressure agents which is non staining to yellow metals.


Filmac VC5 is suitable for drilling or tapping of high tensile difficult to work materials. The product should be applied by oil can or as a spray, due to the very low viscosity it should not be used in high temperature applications as fume generation can be expected.

Filmac VC5 should be the product of choice when faced with arduous drilling or tapping work.
