Quaker Chemical Corp. recently unveiled a new range of metal-forming lubricants for drawing, forming, hydroforming, and tube and pipe applications.
The QuakerDraw product line consists of emulsifiables, neat oils and synthetic fluids. The lubricants are formulated to protect against corrosion, provide lubrication to increase die and punch life, and reduce scratching and galling on parts and dies with high-film-strength additives.
Able to be cleaned with solvent or alkaline cleaners, the fluids are compatible with typical wastewater treatment processes and offer versatility for light, medium or heavy forming, as well as roll-forming, cold-heading and hydroforming.
In situations where chlorinated paraffins are an issue, the QuakerDraw fluids can also provide heavy-duty performance without the chlorine content, replacing chlorinated forming lubricants on all metal types.
For tube and pipe applications, Quaker applied a "front-to-back" approach, including not only a range of process fluids for the front end of pipe manufacturing, but also protective coatings to finish at the back end.
Headquartered in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, Quaker Chemical is a global provider of process fluids, chemical specialties and technical expertise to a wide range of industries, including steel, aluminum, automotive, mining, aerospace, tube and pipe, cans, and others.
