Turbucut is the name given to a range of oils and other liquids that are used to cool and to lubricate metal work pieces when they are being machined, ground, milled, etc. MWFs reduce the heat and friction between the cutting tool and the work piece, and help prevent burning and smoking. Applying MWFs also helps improve the quality of the work piece by continuously removing the fines chips, and swarfs from the tool being used and the surface of the workpiece. (Swarfs are the small pieces of metal removed from a workpiece by a cutting tool.)

Are there different types of MWFs’
Yes. While there are many different components and additives in MWFs', there are four basic classes.
1. Straight Oil : Also called “cutting” or “neat” oils. This type is made up of mineral (petroleum), animal, marine, vegetable or synthetic oils. Today, the mineral oils are “severely solvent refined” or “severely hydrotreated”. These terms refer to refining processes that help reduce the amount of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Straight oils are not diluted with water but other additives may be present.
2. Soluble Oil : This category contains 30 to 85 percent severely refined petroleum oils, as well as emulsifiers to disperse the oil in water.
3. Semi-synthetic fluids contain 5 to 30 percent severely refined petroleum oils, 30 to 50 percent water and a number of additives.
4. Synthetic fluids do not contain petroleum oils. Instead, they use detergent-like components and other additives to help “wet” the workpiece.
