Shell Tonna S2 M 68

Machine tool slideway oils

Shell Tonna S2 M oils are specially designed for the lubrication of machine tool slides, tables and feed mechanisms. Their enhanced tackiness and stick-slip characteristics combine to offer superior frictional performance on slideways. They are specially recommended in cases where high exposure to soluble cutting fluids exist.

SKU: N/A Categories: , ,

Performance, Features & Benefits

  • Ready separation from water-miscible cutting fluids

Separates completely and immediately from water-miscible metalworking fluids allowing easy removal by skimming. This helps to achieve longer coolant life, better cutting performance and to reduce Health & Safety issues.

  • Good slideway adhesion

Provides very effective adhesion to slideway surfaces, resisting wash-off by metalworking fluids and thus reducing oil consumption and giving more uniform working condition for the machine.

  • Good frictional properties

“Stick-slip” problems are overcome allowing more accurate positioning. This provides benefits of improved finished surface quality and dimensional accuracy of work pieces.

  • Good anti-wear performance

Provides anti-wear protection for slideways, gears, bearings and hydraulic system components.

  • Excellent corrosion prevention characteristics

Provides effective prevention of machine tool surfaces and components in the presence of water-miscible cutting fluids.

Main Applications


  • Machine tool slideways, tables and feed mechanisms

Developed for use on a wide range of materials used for machine tool slideway surfaces, including cast iron and synthetic materials.

Shell Tonna S2 M oils can be used also in the hydraulic and gearboxes system although in such applications Shell Tonna S3 M oils are generally preferable.

The lower viscosity grades are intended for horizontal slide lubrication (Shell Tonna S2 M 32 or 68). For vertical slides use Shell Tonna S2 M 220.
