Q8Oils will be using its stand at Southern Manufacturing 2016 to promote its many recently-launched products and service-led initiatives available for the UK market.


Since Q8 Brunel was launched in early 2015, Q8Oils has continued development of its revolutionary water-soluble machining and grinding fluid and can now offer ten grades in the range that have been developed to out-perform all other fluids. All grades are suitablefor use in hard or soft water, with ultra low foaming properties and are ideal for high-speed machining applications and the demanding fluid delivery pressures found on modern machine tools. The range is also designed to be fully-compliant with the latest European industry legislation.


Another product being promoted at the show is Q8 Berlioz, a range of soluble cutting and grinding fluids developed to be tolerant to both hard and soft water and free of formaldehyde, chlorine and secondary amines. Each of the six grades in the range has been specifically formulated for the light- to heavy-duty machining of numerous ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys on CNC machines, machining centres, flexible manufacturing systems and all centralised systems.


With the company so confident in its new grades and existing portfolio of neat and soluble cutting fluids, Q8Oils will continue to promote its ‘Challenge’ initiative which, launched in early 2015, offers new nustomers the opportunity to trial Q8 metalworking fluids in their own machine shops on a payment-by-results basis.


Another service-led initiative being promoted is QCare, a network-enabled, tablet-based system with a bespoke ‘app’ that enables Q8Oils field service technicians (FSTs) to monitor fluids, complete audits and deliver results while still on site.


For further information on the new Q8 Brunel and Q8 Berlioz range, or if you are interested in taking The Challenge, visit, call +44 (0)113 235 0555 or speak to your Q8Oils areas sales manager who can help determine which metalworking fluid from Q8Oils’ portfolio of six product families – Q8 Brunel, Q8 Berlioz, Q8 Baroni, Q8 Beethoven, Q8 Bach and Q8 Brahms – is right for your application.
