FERROCOTE®

Used in the 

steel

 and 

metalworking industries

. Formulated to be readily removed through conventional 

alkaline metal cleaning

or 

degreasing procedures

. Specifically developed to 

protect metal surfaces

from 

corrosion

for up to one year; can be applied using spray, dip, brush or electrostatic techniques.

Metal Rust Preventives

Interim, in-process and final 

rust inhibitors

 designed to 

protect metal parts

 during the manufacturing process and for medium to long-term indoor 

storage of metal surfaces

, both 

ferrous

 and 

non-ferrous

. Proper selection and application of the fluid can result in substantial 

cost benefits

. Used in such processes 

spray washing

 and 

slushing equipment

 to 

remove residual coolant fluid

 and grinding/honing debris from assembled 

bearings

 and components, 

steel

 and 

cast iron alloys

 and uncoated and 

coated steel strip

.

Edge Sealers

Edge sealers are formulated to be applied to the outer-lap of the 

coil

 and to the 

sidewalls

. Edge sealers typically utilize volatile components and waxes to provide 

barrier protection

 to the coil. Subsequently, this barrier film offers protection from a variety of environmental contaminants, including 

acid atmosphere

. These types of products are generally considered very 

robust rust preventives

 but often are more difficult to remove when compared to common 

mill oils

. Today, Quaker offers 

environmentally friendly

 (

low VOC

edge sealer

 technology.

Mill Applied Lubricants

 

(

Prelubes

)

rust inhibitor

 that also provides 

enhanced lubrication properties

 as compared to 

mill oils. Generally, prelubes will offer

better rust protection

 from humidity as compared to most mill oils and will clean easily too. These types of products contain additives that offer 

increased hydrodynamic

 and 

boundary lubrication

. In some cases, these products also contain 

extreme pressure additives

 for lubrication.

Slushing Oils

 

(Mill Oils)

These products embody the overall value expected from a 

slushing oil

, including: excellent 

humidity protection

stain resistance

 and removal from the surface. The aforementioned characteristics of a slushing oil are typically the formulating characteristics of all mill oils currently available. However, varying degrees of 

humidity protection

 are available in mill oils and are commonly referred to as “enhanced” mill oils. These products offer the same performance characteristics of standard slushing oils, but exceed the overall humidity protection.

Vanishing Oils

Vanishing oils are also formulated with volatile components, but contrary to 

edge sealers

, they are formulated to leave a very 

low residual film

 on the surface. As a result, vanishing oils do not offer the same level of 

humidity protection

 or 

lubrication characteristics

 as compared to edge sealers, prelubes or slushing oils. However, the very low residual film does allow for

wet tempering

 and short to medium term protection while having very little impact on downstream processes. These oils offer 

light duty stamping lubrication

.

QUAKER DRYCOTE®

Hot melt

 

dry film technology

, free of solvent or water carriers. Provides 

excellent corrosion

 and industrial lubrication properties for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. 

Applied electrostatically

 or by other conventional methods for use as a corrosion preventive, rust inhibitor or mill applied lubricant. Electrostatic application allows for in-house, in-line application.
QUAKER DRYCOTE® is a corrosion preventive dry film for 

stainless steel

 and 

high strength

 

steel applications

. It can offer
