Two committees have been working for several years on the standardisation of Cutting Fluid nomenclature and summarised symbols which can be used by both the oil chemist and production men to avoid misunderstandings and yet present the clear simple truth of the subject matter. The material given below has been approved both by the Research Committee on Cutting Fluids of the ASTM and the ASME, and they are presented here for the purpose of bringing them to the attention of more people interested and inviting comments from those wishing to improve this standard.
