I am after a coolant to for my mill to cut metals a range ofgeneral metals. I am a novice but I like the look of the last one, there aredata sheets for it. If anyone can adviseon this it would be of help.
I want one that works well, is good in health terms and good value
Just a quick thank you to you guys that helped with my lastpost.

The first two are pretty much the same, and are your usual conventional soluble oils.
The Arc one is a more modern synthetic oil (it shouldn't go mouldy or smell as quick, but I've personally never had any issues with conventional oils!)
I've used the conventional white soluble oils for years, however I'm currently searching for slideway oil so will probably buy whatever soluble cutting fluid that supplier has for a reasonable price. Unless you really need an oil to cover some specific machining need, then it won't make that much difference.
It is a bit confusing that you have to ask. To use suds you usually have a tank, pump, flow control, pointable nozzle, splash guards, return hoses and filter. If you have all that then you might be expected to know what to do with it. If you don't have all that, suds may not be your best choice unless you plan to get all that

Suesi Like M_C says any of those will work for general cutting but the synthetic may be best in your case to avoid Mould, smell etc.
Jazz, Calm down dear it is only an advert.
Suesi, you have asked for coolant advice which probably means your tooling is burning out? If your tooling is burning out flood coolant may help but it is not the first thing you look to change. Give us a clue.
I can't think of ever meeting any woman called Steve...;)
Don't Triacs come with flood coolant?
Robin is a girls name, just because you can't see the pony tail in my avatar doesn't mean it isn't there.
