Quaker is recognized as the technical leader in the die cast lubricant field. Our innovative solutions provide the key to die casting lubricant performance. Increased temperature stability and controlled application provide the fundamentals for lubricant behavior. To this end, Quaker Chemical formulated Smart Polymer technology based on heat activated polymers. Quaker is committed to producing these critical components at the lowest possible cost for our customers by manufacturing Smart Polymers in our facilities. Smart Polymers in DIE SLICK® die release lubricants form a tough barrier on hot areas of the die, while lightly coating cooler, less demanding areas. And for our customers this means:
- Lower Total Cost – Increased die life, improved cycle time shots/hour and reduced maintenance
- Increased Performance – Brighter castings, reduced soldering and residue, and excellent emulsion stability
- Improved Production – Excellent part quality and shorter cycle times
Quaker also provides process expertise and customized support services at the local level through comprehensive laboratory performance testing, custom designed POLY SLICK™ Plunger Bead Dispenser units with precise feeding, and DIE SLICK® Ratio Monitoring equipment to instantly monitor fluid dilution ratios and effortlessly track and view trends.
Talk to one of our experts to learn how our specialty die casting lubricants and our complete range of solutions can make a difference in your die casting operations using DIE SLICK® lubricants with Smart Polymer Technology, PLUNGER SLICK® and POLY SLICK® plunger lubricants, QUINTOLUBRIC® fire-resistant hydraulic fluids and QUAKERCOOL® machining coolants.
Attend Quaker’s Congress Session
“Paint Adhesion Surface Analysis with SEM/EDAX” will be presented by Dr. Matthew Lococo, Global Die Casting Technical Director. Many castings undergo a secondary process such as painting, coating, adhesives, or chrome plating. Depending on the secondary process, various chemical and physical modifications are made to the casting surface. Before these modifications can take place, it is critical to clean the casting surface of any existing chemical residue from previous casting, trimming, quenching, or machining operations. If complications occur, it is often difficult to pinpoint the cause.
In this Congress session, you will learn about laboratory analysis Quaker has used to link surface condition with associated secondary process difficulties and the useful correlation found between observed surface chemistry and paint adhesion issues.
