Stuart Duff 29 May 2017 Metalworking

Q8Oils Brunel XF 343 is a new generation metalworking fluid designed to excel across a wide variety of aerospace machining applications. In 2015, it was approved by Snecma Safran to the specification 455-201-0-00-B and in 2016, with continued sales success it also was accredited PCS 4001ed2 approval from Safran Landing Systems to be included on the PCS 4002 list.

Being a leading supplier to the aerospace industry, Safran Landing Systems (previously Messier-Bugatti-Dowty) insist upon the highest standards of engineering and quality control during the manufacturing of their products. Q8 Oils is delighted to have gained PCS 4001 Ed. 2 accreditation and be placed on the approval list PCS 4002 for metal machining applications in the manufacture of aircraft landing and braking systems. This milestone is further progression on the 455-201-0-00-B approval by Snecma Safran.
With two significant aerospace approvals, Q8 Brunel XF 343 has been confirmed as a metalworking fluid that meets the sky-high standards of the aerospace industry.

“Following extensive research and both laboratory and field-trial testing, we have innovative soluble metalworking fluid chemistry focusing on three key customer requirements – product performance, environmental protection and operator health. These approvals area significant achievement for Q8 Brunel XF 343 and complements the success we are delivering with the whole range of Q8 Brunel soluble metalworking products”.
