Measurement of Properties of Cutting Fluids With CAPB (Vegetable Based Emulsifier)



Cutting fluids have been used in machining for over two centuries. However, different environmental issues associated with them have limited their application. Although vegetable based cutting fluids are formulated, vegetable based emulsifier is not found in the literature. In the present work, cutting fluids containing both vegetable based emulsifier and vegetable oil were formulated and different properties of the formulated fluids were measured as per ASTM standards to estimate the applicability of the fluids in machining.
