Saw Blade Wax Stick - Grade F-168
Product #    



F-168 is specifically formulated for applying to metal cutting saws. The tenacious, clinging grease film left on the cutting tool serves as a heat reducing coolant on the cutting teeth and work surface.

The anti-heating properties in the formulation work by keeping the wax on the saw blade or tool, reducing the tendency to spin off the saw blade. The result is a smooth and quick cut, adding longer life to the cutting teeth.

F-168 prevents burning, clogging, chatter and tearing. It works well on all cutting operations of non-ferrous or ferrous metals. F-168 is soluble in water, non-toxic, non-irritating and biodegradable. Cleans easily by wiping or hot water flushing. F-168 's fiber tube is made with an extended hollow end "Safety-Grip" hand applicator allowing the operator to hold and push the F-168 wax stick safely against the saw or cutting tool.

Uses: Band saws, Circular saws, Carpenter saws, Hack saws. Other uses: Drilling, Tapping, Grinding, Filing, Cutting, Metal Spinning, Polishing with Coated Abrasives.

Packaged:  in a spiral wound Peel-a-Way paper tube 2” x 12” long tube - Packed in shipping cases containing 24 tubes to the case.

A.E.L. #1


A.E.L. #1 is a solid stick, grease-free lubricant, containing a very high quality graphite powder. Formulated without the use of vegetable oils, paraffin waxes, mineral oils or other petroleum derivatives.
A.E.L. # 1 was especially developed to serve as a lubricant on hot aluminum extruding dies, billets, rams and work holding fixtures for aluminum extruding operations. Particularly desired where oil and grease type products cannot be tolerated or when smoke emitions are objectionable.
A.E.L. # 1’s base binder is a complex mixture composed of sodium fatty acids and water. It burns off clean, leaving the graphite to serve as the lubricating medium on the billet and ram.
