Chemetall Introduces Tech Cool(R) 35048BF, an Environmentally Compliant,
Premium Performance, Boron Free, Multi-Metal Microemulsion Coolant

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Feb. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemetall, a leading
innovator in metalworking fluids, introduces Tech Cool® 35048BF, the ideal
solution for global manufacturers requiring premium performance. Boron
continues to see increased regulatory pressure in the United States and
Europe, resulting in many corporations reducing or eliminating the substance
from their chemical programs. Chemetall is proud to offer Tech Cool 35048BF,
an improvement to the highly successful Tech Cool 35048 chemistry.

Tech Cool 35048BF is breakthrough technology where Chemetall's research team
has been able to maintain all the critical performance parameters required of
a premium coolant, and significantly improve the lubricity characteristics on
aluminum. This is without the use of boron compounds, chlorine, sulfur or
phosphorous. Tech Cool 35048BF is completely free of DCHA and formaldehyde
donating compounds.

A key product in the very successful "platform" approach to coolant
technology, Tech Cool 35048BF provides long sump life, low odors without the
use of bactericides, reduced foam levels, exceptional corrosion resistance and
high lubricity. Substrate staining, typically a challenge for metalworking
fluids, has been eliminated with Tech Cool 35048BF, making it the ideal
product for machining ferrous, aluminum, copper and brass substrates.

Consistent with the portfolio of Chemetall microemulsion coolants, Tech Cool
35048BF achieves a highly stable emulsion that rejects tramp oils and
minimizes residues, greatly extending sump life and reducing coolant
consumption rates. Outstanding lubricity extends tool life over conventional
fluids reducing operating costs. Stable in hard water and compatible with
recycling programs, Tech Cool 35048BF is designed for central systems and
stand alone machines.

"The market place is more global in nature than ever before" states Ken
Reindl, Business Manager for Metalworking at Chemetall. "Our customers are
demanding to use the same premium chemistry throughout their operations. Tech
Cool 35048BF provides the perfect balance of exceptional performance, ease of
operation, worker acceptance and return on investment. Manufacturers can now
make their parts faster and better, generate less waste and remain fully
