With its short evaporation time, Silberschnitt's V52 formula is a residue-free evaporating cutting fluid developed for offline cutting and is suitable for standard glass and also for coated and laminated glass. Modern synthetic cutting fluids are definitely preferable to traditional cutting agents such as petroleum or kerosene. Cutting fluids lubricate the cutting wheel, minimizing friction and thus enabling longer product life. A reduction in cutting pressure results in less damage to the glass surface, leading to less chipping and better edge quality. In addition, the finest glass particles are bound and consequential damage in the downstream process steps is avoided. Since both production processes and environmental conditions are different for each manufacturer, the cutting fluid must also be adapted to the respective conditions. Glass thickness, surface temperature, and type of application are a few important factors when selecting the right cutting fluid.
