||This interactive CD-ROM was produced to present the science, research activities, and beneficial environmental and machining advantages for utilizing Liquid Crystal Polymers (LCPs) as a machine fluid in the manufacturing industry. In 1995, the U.S. EPA funded a project to cut fluids in metal machining operations. As a result, a guide was developed for the selection and use of metal working fluids based on alloy, shape, tool size, and machining speed. This project evaluated a unique metal working fluid known as LCP. LCP fluids are a new class of polymers that are non-toxic; physiologically inert; not attacked or biodegraded by bacteria or fungi; have a boiling point greater than 550F; are stable in the presence of oxidizing agents; are un-reactive with acids and alkaline solutions; are transparent; immiscible with water and aqueous mextures; less dense than water, therefore float as a separate layer in aqueous systems; and have very low pressure at ambient and near ambient temperatures.
||This is an interactive CD-ROM.
