Industrial Metalworking Fluids by Gulf Oil Ireland

The Metalworking Fluids section of the Industrial category covers all types of equipment and machinery used in manufacturing plants and factories. This covers machinery including; lathes, saws, drills, grinders and machine tools.

Our range of Metalworking Fluids products include;

  • Neat cutting oil
  • Extreme pressure coolant
  • Heavy duty chlorine-free coolant
  • General purpose chlorine-free coolants

Gulf has accumulated a long history of expertise in coolants and fluids used whenever metals are cut or reshaped. There are both water-extendable fluids as well as neat oils designed to give the best possible finish to the worked metal and to prolong the life of the cutting tool. Processes covered include cutting, drilling, grinding, forming, drawing, stamping and quenching and the range caters for many metals and alloys, not only steel.

In laboratory and field tests, Gulf metalworking fluids constantly out-perform other products, and are continually replacing established international brands by solving challenging applications.

To purchase any of our lubricants, fluids or cleaning products, please visit your local Gulf Oil service station, contact us on 1800 4853 645 or by emailing for details of your nearest stockist.

Gulfcut 56-UA [Ref:GUCUT56]Technical Data Sheet

Gulfcut 56-UA is a medium viscosity light coloured neat oil designed for medium to heavy duty machining of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, where enhanced work-piece visibility is preferred. It contains a synergistic blend of light coloured extreme pressure additives to significantly enhance surface finish and tool-life even on difficult to machine ferrous alloys. The product is non-staining, and can therefore be used safely on yellow metals.

  • Good lubricity
  • Good EP Performance
  • Cost effective
  • Medium treated
  • Low foam, low mist
  • Excellent surface finish
  • Enhanced tool-life
  • Very economical in-use
  • Suitable for difficult alloys
  • Can be used on high pressure machines

Suitable for grinding, and machining of ferrous and non-ferrous metals including difficult to machine alloys, giving superior surface finish and tool–life. It can be used as a medium to heavy-duty general purpose work-shop lubricant. It can be used to top-up all common neat metalworking fluids without adverse effect. See datasheet for details.
