Metalworking fluids, the class of lubricants most susceptible to microbial attack, metalworking fluid must also be safe for human use and exposure, The failure of the fluid to perform any of its functions has the potential to result in operational problems, process shutdowns, decreased tool life, and product-quality issues, all of which will result in increased costs. Perhaps one of the most common and controllable complications is microbial degradation specially standing from the fact that metalworking fluids contain the nutrients that can permit unchecked microbial growth. In this work we prepared Antimicrobial metal working fluid additive which fulfills the criteria of successful local production in Egypt, as the commercial availability of starting components, effectiveness of the prepared additive, easiness of addition and homogenization with other MWF additives, good environmental profile and biodegradability. The effectiveness of the prepared additive was evaluated by standard method ASTM E645-97 test. It was revealed that; the formic acid which condensate with the polyethylene glycol 400 and ethylene glycol had excellent antibacterial action, it could also greatly reduce growth of bacteria.
