- Unexpected rust appeared in a very short time on machined cast iron
- Components going rusty in storage
- Dark stains on machined parts
- Separation of oil results in a creamy surface after some time without disturbance.
- Coolant life is very short and there are bad smells, corrosion, low ph foaming problems
- Hydrophobic grease like deposits in the coolant tank or floating on the surface of the coolant
- Massive white particles floating on the coolant short term after mixing fresh emulsions
- Foam accumulation in coolant tank or on the filter due to coolants foaming behaviour
