Silberschnitt's W60 is a residue-free washable cutting fluid. This formula is used for thick glass cutting and demanding shape cuts. One example would be automotive cutting applications. This cutting fluid is known to improve edge quality. 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.
