2. a liquid, such as an emulsion of oil, water, and soft soap, used to lubricate and cool the workpiece and cutting tool during machining

coolant

[′kül·ənt]
(materials)
A cutting fluid for machine operations, which keeps the tool cool to prevent reduction in hardness and resistance to abrasion, and prevents distortion of the work.
A substance, ordinarily fluid, used for cooling any part of a reactor in which heat is generated.
In general, any cooling agent, usually a fluid.

cooling medium, coolant

A fluid which conducts heat from one or more heat sources and transports it to a heat exchanger, where the heat is removed and disposed of.
