Veterans Day

Today brings up a lot on emotions for me. I have many family members who are or were members of the military. They all hold a special place in my heart. I wanted to let everyone know that is a part of the Tullco family, that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your service! Please comment anyone you would like to honor this Veteran’s Day!

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic


The coronavirus situation is like nothing we have ever seen before.  Please know that Tullco, Inc. is doing everything we can to support our customers, distributors, suppliers, vendors, employees, and families. You may be wondering if you can still get our product.  The answer is, YES you can!  We have many distributors throughout the USA (39 states) and we are still manufacturing, so that you can continue to stay in business.

We have taken the following measures:

We have taken appropriate measures to ensure that the risk of infection is minimized. We are working from home when possible and our production employees are following social distancing and extra sanitizing.

Our plant in Greenville SC, USA is working to ensure production and delivery of our products, so that our customers can continue to produce as well. We also increased our raw material stocks and have alternative suppliers in case certain suppliers stop production. We have many local distributors around the USA that there is sufficient stock to get us through this trying time. However, we do recommend that you keep enough stock at your facility.

These are challenging times and I know that with everyone’s cooperation, we will get through this better and stronger. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with your usual distributor or you can reach out to us directly at

Conditions that affect output

So, I read the article above and it got me to thinking.  Sure air temperature and humidity can affect the final product, but I think that the most important things that affect the end product, are the raw materials (inputs) that are used.  Making sure you have the right metal or plastic is the most important choice.  Being sure to take into consideration how external influences can affect your material of choice.  Once you have chosen your material, the second most important choice is your machining fluid.  You need to make sure it is the right one for your material choice.  Most other manufacturers of machining fluids has one for specialty metals, one for aluminum, one for steel, one for cast iron, one for plastics, etc…  But when my father started Tullco, Inc. over 45 years ago, his vision was to simplify machining fluid and yet make it the best product for any material chosen.  Our Premier Poly-Cut does just that with our exclusive EP Polymer.

In my experience once a shop finds a machining fluid that they like, they don’t want to try anything else.  That kind of thinking, can put you at a disadvantage.  If I could show you how changing your machining fluid would allow you to machine faster with a better finish on any material, would you try it?  If your competitors were switching to gain the advantage would you try it?  The truth is , if you don’t keep up with technological changes, you will lose customers.  If you are stuck in your old ways, you will lose customers.  But, if you were to think of your raw inputs as investments instead of just a cost of doing business, you will find that your end results will far surpass your expectations.

Improved Formulation


Tullco, Inc.’s, Premier Poly-CutTM Machining Fluid Introduces an Improved High Pressure Formulation

Greenville, SC  November 2, 2017

TULLCO, INC. a privately held US manufacturer of machining fluids located in Greenville, SC, serving the plastics processing and metalworking industries, announces that Tullco, Inc. brand, releases an improved formulation of their PREMIER POLY-CUTTM, POLY-CUTTM, POLY-FORMTM, MACHINING FLUIDs and POLY-CUTTM DEFOAMER .

Jim Tully, CEO, of Tullco, Inc. states, “We have always worked well with high pressure systems, but with improved machining technology, foaming can sometimes still be a problem.  Our new formulation does not change our core formula; what it does is reduce the foam produced by high pressure spray nozzles by more than half. Our products can still be used safely on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, ceramics, and glass.”

Tullco, Inc.’s product line focuses on being the only industrial machining fluid your shop needs.  With the improved defoaming formulation they will still offer four exceptional products:

PREMIER POLY-CUTTM MACHINING FLUID:  Premier Poly-Cut™ has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that are built-in to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungus that may affect this product.  Together, they insure the longest sump life possible (six months or longer in most cases.)  Premier Poly-Cut™ works remarkably well in machining steel, aluminum, copper alloys, zinc, tool steel, Inconel ® and other nickel and chrome base alloys.  It dissipates heat better than any other product on the market and, with the polymer additives, will eliminate welding or chip build-up on your inserts and end-mills giving an exceptional finish.  When machining aluminum, Premier Poly-Cut™ will provide a superior finish much like kerosene and oil but without the hazards.  Our products are also highly recommended for grinding carbide and gummy tool steels using a vitrified bonded wheel, without loading.  Premier Poly-Cut™ will not stain or corrode ferrous metals, nonferrous metals, plastics, ceramics, rubber or titanium.  This product is clean to work with and will not smoke, stain skin or clothing or cause dermatitis.

POLY-CUTTM MACHINING FLUID:  Poly-Cut™ is recommended to be used in band saws or other similar flood-type sawing where the coolant/lubricant is not completely being recaptured.  It works just like Premier Poly-CutTM, but with less antibacterial and anti-fungal additives.

POLY-FORMTM MACHINING FLUID:  Poly-Form™ is a water-soluble polymer lubricant for CNC turret and high-speed stamping.  Our product has better viscosity than water-soluble oil and cools better than straight drawing oil so it works very well for blanking and forming operations.  Poly-Form™ is an excellent lubricant for soft nonferrous metals, such as aluminum, copper and brass, and will protect your nonferrous metals from oxidation, including galvanized and tin-plate.  This product is also clean to work with and will not smoke, stain skin or clothing or cause dermatitis.

POLY-CUT DEFOAMERTM:  is a non-silicone defoamer, which can be added to Tullco, Inc.’s machining fluids to control excessive foam.

What Makes Premier Poly-Cut™ the BEST Machining Fluid on the Market?

We Use a Plant Based Oil, (so our product will not smoke). Our product contains no ingredient now known to be hazardous as defined by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1000 (subpart Z), and OSHA 29 CFR 1900.1200.  We are Non-Carcinogenic: Premier Poly-CutTM contains no known or suspected carcinogens.

We Dissipate Heat Better, no one else has our EP Polymer, (so we keep your bits, blades and parts cooler so they last longer). It is capable of being used in virtually every application within the machining industry.

No Weekly four step testing needed!!! Saves you time and money!!! Only one test is needed!

  • Refractometer is the only tool needed.
  • We use a Bactericide in our cutting fluid so no PH test is needed and our product does not cause dermatitis. We believe No Bacteria is Good Bacteria for your coolant.
  • Our product is almost neutral (close to water) we tint it blue so the machinist can see if the product needs replenished. This dye will not stain plastic, metal, products, clothes, or skin so it is just simply there to help the machinist.


  • Our product actually cleans your machine while it works. You do not have to remove our product to clean your machine if you “recapture” and filter your cutting fluid. * Although if you allow material to settle to the bottom of your collection tank, we recommend you implement a clean-out process at least bi-annually.
  • You do not have to run a chemical cleaner through your machine, prior to the clean-out process of our fluid. We recommend you remove our product from the top of your collection tank and place it in a clean container, as it will be put back into your machine.  Then clean out the machine of any particulates and sludge and the remaining fluid and properly dispose per local, state and federal regulations.  You can then replace the used fluid, add water and additional coolant to bring your levels back to normal (as measured with your refractometer).  So one less step and not only does this save you time and money it is safer for your machinist and their skin, as well as making your machine last longer!!!
  • We are soap based, thus it cleans over time. If you notice that your Premier Poly-CutTM looks dirty.  That is because it has cleaned out areas of your machine that your prior fluid had built up and left behind.  This is normal, just remove the dirty fluid and replace.  Once your machine is “clean”, that will no longer be an issue.

Our product is used at a lower concentration than most of our competitors (so this allows our product to last longer than traditional cutting fluids).

We are Veteran owned and have been Manufacturing Machining fluids in AMERICA for over 45 years, so your dollars stay in America!!!

We allow you to try our product Risk Free, we simply ask you clean your machine first in your traditional way, to ensure none of our product gets mixed in with what you’re currently using. Once you use our product, you will love it, and then we simply ask you to pay for the Risk Free, 5 gallon pail you used. In the unlikely event you do not like the product once you have tried it, you’re out NOTHING! We will just shake hands and still be friend.  It is that simple!  #MFGDay2017, #SDVOB, #CNC #MadeInAmerica, #Tullco
