Chemkool 4002 is a biostatic, low foam, semi-synthetic metalworking fluid for machining and grinding ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Chemkool 4002 has excellent corrosion “protection” for cast iron, steel, copper, aluminum and its alloys.

Chemkool 4002 is formulated with specially selected lubricant additives, which are resistant to microbial growth at recommended levels, yet are biodegradable at diluted levels.

Chemkool 4002 additionally contains very effective anti-microbial additives, which not only eliminate bacteria but also fungi and yeast species.
