Soluble Oils
Industry Applications

Soluble oils are also called emulsifiable oils or water-miscible coolants. They are made up of finely refined lubricant-base oil and emulsifiers to help disperse the oil in water. These fluid concentrates include other additives to improve performance and lengthen the life of the fluid. Soluble oil products are supplied as concentrates that are diluted with water to obtain the working fluid.
