Q-KUT 170

(Straight Cutting Oil, Machining and Grinding Fluid)


Q-KUT 170 is specially engineered for medium to heavy-duty machining, grinding, and threading operations that demand a superior level of lubrication. This versatile fluid is well-suited for use on all steel grades, with a particular emphasis on challenging materials like high nickel alloys and copper.


Q-KUT 170 should be used in its undiluted form. Mixing it with mineral spirits or other low-viscosity substances is strongly discouraged, as it can significantly impair its performance attributes. For additional information, it is advisable to consult with your Vesta Representative.


  • CORROSION PROTECTION. Excellent corrosion protection from thin film aspects of the product.
  • UNOBJECTIONALABLE ODOUR The bland nature of the odour is acceptable to operators versus the standard sulphurised-type odours of other cutting oils.
  • LUBRICATION. The unique blend of boundary and extreme pressure lubricants provides high film strength and excellent lubricating qualities.
  • RESIDUE. The thin-film oily residue is non-tacky and easily removed by conventional alkaline or emulsion cleaners.
  • VERSATILITY. The unique lubrication qualities of this product provide optimum performance on difficult machining operations and grinding operations.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL COMPATIBILITY. The non-sulphurised and non-chlorinated nature of this product does not require special handling from a waste treatment or disposal viewpoint.
