DESCRIPTION
CIMSTAR 66EPB semi-synthetic metalworking fluid is
recommended for grinding and machining operations of
ferrous and most non-ferrous metals where hard water
condition exists.
APPLICATION
CIMSTAR 66EPB can be used on cast iron, nodular iron,
carbon steels, high speed steels, high alloy steels, and
most aluminum alloys. It should not be used on
magnesium alloys.
Designed for moderate to heavy duty machining and
grinding operations.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
HARD WATER TOLERANCE:
CIMSTAR 66EPB was designed to be used in metalworking
fluid systems with high water hardness, typically
exceeding 400 ppm.
VERSATILE:
The CIMTAR 66EPB is designed to provide good
lubrication in a variety of operations on a variety of
materials.
EXCELLENT RANCIDITY CONTROL:
Superior fluid life - Minimizes the need for additives.
FOAM:
Provides extra foam protection in soft water.

RECOMMENDED STARTING DILUTIONS
CIMSTAR 66EPB is to be mixed with water for use. Always add concentrate to water. Fluid may
be more difficult to mix when water temperature is below 55F. Add no other materials to the
concentrate or mix unless approved by your CIMCOOL® District Manager.
Grinding
5% - 10%
(1:20 to 1:10)
Machining
5% - 10%
(1:20 to 1:10)
CONCENTRATION
BCG Titration, Total Alkalinity or Refractometer can be used.
The Refractometer Factor is 1.7. A refractometer is only recommended for use in checking the
concentration of a fresh charge. Multiply the scale reading obtained on your CIMCOOL®
Refractometer by this factor to obtain the mix concentration in percent. Calibrate the
refractometer so that it reads 0.0 with water before testing the sample mix. Remove gross
contaminants from the sample mixes before testing.
