Superior lubricants for superior performance

TAP AQUA

Water-based chlorine and sulphur-free lubricant for drilling, reaming and tapping

MOLYSLIP® TAP AQUA is a fully-synthetic, water-based lubricant designed for severe metal working operations such as drilling, reaming and tapping. Formulated from a unique combination of polymeric lubricity and anti-wear additives TAP AQUA provides excellent surface finish to components and protects tooling from wear and damage. TAP AQUA is suitable for most drilling, reaming and tapping (spiral point, spiral flute and fluteless) operations on ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

TAP AQUA is free from chlorine, sulphur, solvents and mineral oil. Fuming associated with conventional oil based lubricants is eliminated resulting in an improved working environment. The complete water solubility ensures that components are easily cleaned and the residue does not contaminate metalworking fluid sumps that may be present.
