● Reduced downtime by 30%

● Increased Customer Satisfaction

● SAFE for workers

● Easy maintenance

Varsteel Ltd. is a leading provider of steel, rebar, pipe, piling and structural steel in Canada and the United States. Varsteel tested 4 different lubricants in its band saws in order to increase life of blades used for cutting of steel. It was found that GreenCut Cutting Fluid from LubeCorp Manufacturing significantly increases life of the blades from 10-15 eight-hour shifts experienced by the other three lubricants to 28-32 eight-hour shifts. The company reduced maintenance time by 30% with estimated total annual savings of $50,000.

By utilizing GreenCut, Varsteel increased customer satisfaction. Customers no longer had to clean the steel products from Varsteel and could process them (paint, powder-coat) directly after purchase.

The saw operators also like GreenCut because it is safe for their health, prevents breathing and skin problems, doesn`t cause slippery surfaces and is simple to maintain by checking the coolant with a pH strip at the beginning of each shift.
