CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") is introducing a new portfolio of metal removal emulsion technology to serve the metalworking industry's automotive/heavy equipment manufacturers and components producers that operate with diverse metallurgies. Driven by increasing performance demands in the metalworking industry, including evolving health, safety and environmental standards, Quaker has developed two new platform technologies, QUAKERCOOL® 700 Series, designed for ferrous machining and QUAKERCOOL® 7000 Series for aluminum and multi-metal machining. The major benefactors of this development will be producers of metal components with individual machining cells or smaller central systems. This new portfolio of six metal removal fluids offers end users a defined selection of high performance choices to suit their specific needs for process efficiency and lower total cost of ownership.
The new formulations reduce the historical use of hazardous materials such as boron, formaldehyde, and other substances of concern. The improved emulsion characteristics in several of the fluids directly influence plant metrics by reducing the chemical consumption or water use per part, while defending against traditional degrading materials like tramp oils. Benefits of both QUAKERCOOL® series include:
- Excellent biostability against bacteria and fungi
- Flexibility for a wide range of operations including tapping and reaming
- Handles a broad array of materials including aluminum, stainless steel, steel, ductile cast iron, compacted graphite iron (CGI), and titanium alloys
- No to low foam and excellent emulsion stability over an expanded range of water hardness
- High operator acceptance due to low mist and odor
"The QUAKERCOOL® 700 and QUAKERCOOL® 7000 Series is a breakthrough technology portfolio for the Metalworking Industry that goes beyond the baseline performance thresholds, or conventional growing pains. The portfolio will deliver tangible reductions in tooling costs, as well as enhanced part quality and productivity over traditional fluids. Field tested, these products are running in more than 125 systems," stated Jon Plawchan, Global Product Manager.
