For all users of cutting and grinding oils, the 1st June 2015 is a key date. From that date, full implementation of the guidelines for the labelling of mixtures containing mineral oil will become obligatory. Accordingly, all products with a kinematic viscosity (at 40° C) below 20.5 mm2/s must be labelled with the pictogram GHS08 and the Hazard Statement H304: May be fatal if swallowed and enters airways.
These labelling requirements do not affect products based on ester oils. Oemeta has developed OEMETOL 556, a new low-viscous and non-labelled cutting and grinding oil, which offers both high performance and best possible occupational safety.
