INOX-MX3 for Engineering

The industrial quality, proven track record and wide ranging uses of inox lubricant for engineering makes it a suitable product for the many applications used in this field.


INOX is considered as being the best cutting and machining lubricant for aluminium and aluminium alloys. It gives a clean and smooth finish and stops the problems of tool chatter, tool creep, furring and burring that are normally associated with working those metals. INOX is a good lubricant for drilling, tapping and thread cutting of all metals. INOX will reduce the instances of work hardening when used as a lubricant for the machining of stainless steel and will give this metal a clean, smooth finish. INOX is a good machine cutting lubricant for all metals and their alloys. It is not effected by cutting oil viruses or the problems associated with soluble oil type lubricants. INOX never needs replacing, just top up the reservoir as it is used up. INOX will keep reservoirs, pumps and feed lines clean and free from corrosion. INOX can be used by a hand held applicator for individual and one off machining applications. INOX is a good lubricant for metal plate cutting blades as used on guillotines.


” Our business does a lot of commercial and industrial contract work where we use a great deal of structural aluminium. INOX stopped all the problems we had with cutting and drilling aluminium. We have been using it for the last 8 years. We have found it to be the best product on the market for our type of industry”. Jerry Mitchell, Prop.


INOX lubricant will allow metal to be cleanly hole punched and stamped without sticking or jamming, just spray or paint a liberal coat of INOX on the plate metal and bars to be stamped or punched or coat the punch tool or stamp.


INOX is a good lubricant for wire feeders on MIG welders, stops jamming and corrosion and allows the wire to feed smoothly. Spray INOX on ferrous steel welds (especially on jobs built outside in the open air) to protect against rust forming until painting or powder coating is done. INOX can be painted over with oil based primers without first removing the INOX coating. Once cleaned with white spirits, INOX is compatible with powder coating. INOX is easily removed with white spirit or most mineral based solvents. INOX will not harm painted, enamelled and powder coated surfaces or finishes.


INOX has a fine enough texture so that it can be used to lubricate and protect vernier callipers and micrometers from rust and corrosion. Spray INOX on finished steel and alloy parts and fittings, example, crankshafts, engine blocks, cam shafts, production line machined fittings, to protect them against corrosion and extend their shelf life until used. Use INOX to protect against corrosion and lubricate for trouble free operation, spindles, chucks, tool clamps, threaded shafts, fastenings, lathe beds, etc, on power hacksaws, milling machine, lathes, drilling and boring machines. INOX will protect from corrosion between use, milling heads, reamers and cutting tools. INOX will protect any bare metal surfaces on machines against corrosion. INOX will help protect against rust, new plate, bar, rod and tube steel stored in the open air. Use INOX to clean hand tools and keep them free from corrosion.


INOX is not compatible with soluble oil type cutting lubricants, reservoirs and feed lines must be flushed clean before using INOX as a cutting oil lubricant. Because most soluble oil type cutting lubricants have no anti-corrosion component, rust and corrosion can form on lathes and milling machines using this type of lubricant. INOX will protect engineering equipment and stop corrosion, but the soluble oil must be washed off first or INOX may lose its’ effectiveness in protecting this equipment. INOX will draw any corrosion out of the pores of the metal and quite commonly the next day after applying INOX, equipment can have a reddish brown coating, this is caused by the cleaning action of INOX drawing corrosion to the surface of the metal. By spraying on more INOX and wiping with a coarse weave cotton clothe will clean away the leached corrosion deposits and allow INOX to continue to keep equipment clean and corrosion free.


This type of cleaning bath is designed for effectively cleaning grease, baked on oil resins and carbon from engine parts and blocks before regrinding and reboring. Depending on where the caustic bath is situated, inside or outside the building, the caustic fumes can have an effect on anti-corrosion coatings on finished parts up to 50 feet from where the bath is sited. INOX is a very good anti-corrosion product for finished metal surfaces, but its effectiveness can be impaired by fumes from a caustic bath. Always store finished engine parts and blocks well away from where the caustic bath is situated. There are no set rules for this, trial and error is the only way to determine a safe distance.

Caution: Inox may effect some natural rubber products with continual long term use.
