FEW has introduced a non-dangerous, non-hazardous, biodegradable specialty, drilling and reaming fluid. It has the required viscosity to enable the fluid to cling to the tool and parts. It provides outstanding lubricity as well as cooling, wear protection and friction reduction. Greenlube is used used neat.


For all steels and non-ferrous metals.

Free of chlorine, sulphur and oil.

Optimum lubricity and cooling function.

Does not release harmful smoke during machining.

Very mild odour.

Rust and corrosion protection.

Non staining on aluminium.




Neat cutting oil, also known as straight cutting oil or cutting oil concentrate, is a type of cutting fluid used in metalworking processes. Unlike water-based cutting fluids, neat cutting oil is usable undiluted, straight from the container. Neat cutting oils are typically composed of base oils (mineral, synthetic, or semi-synthetic) and additives tailored to provide lubrication.

Here are some key characteristics and benefits of neat cutting oils:

  1. Lubrication: Neat cutting oils provide excellent lubrication between the cutting tool and the workpiece, reducing friction and wear on both components. This helps prolong tool life and improve machining accuracy.
  2. Cooling: They dissipate heat generated during cutting operations, preventing overheating of the cutting tool and workpiece. Effective cooling helps maintain dimensional accuracy and surface finish while reducing the risk of thermal damage.
  3. Chip evacuation: Neat cutting oils help flush away chips and debris from the cutting zone, preventing chip buildup and ensuring uninterrupted cutting action. This contributes to smoother machining operations and reduced tool breakage.
  4. Compatibility: Neat cutting oils are suitable for a wide range of metalworking applications, including turning, milling, drilling, and tapping. They are compatible with various materials, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Proper selection and application of neat cutting oils are crucial for achieving optimal machining performance and tool life.
