With over 70 years of experience in steel, we have a broad portfolio of products and services, making us the global leader in steel rolling lubrication. In fluid power, our Quintolubric fire-resistant, biodegradable hydraulic fluids are the standard for primary metals plants, and serve a range of other industries where performance, fire resistance and environmental safety are major concerns. They provide excellent resistance to humidity and temperatue-related corrosion and staining resulting from long-term storage and transportation. Quaker offers aluminum and lithium complex, polyurea and calcium sulfonate-thickened greases for challenging industrial operations. Learn more about our Quaker Chemical Case Studies.

Extend bearing life and reduce unplanned downtime resulting in reduced maintenance costs Promote mill reliability and productivity.
Verkol Lubricants, a Quaker Chemical Company, assessed the mill’s situation, and introduced QUAKERTEK™ VERKOPLEX EP-2, a lithium complex grease, reducing bearing failures to 5-6 a year.
Quaker Chemical Corporation (“Quaker”) proposed the steel mill trial QUINTOPLEX™ LXS 1002-EP, while the grease burns, the duration time is very short due to its unique formulation, therefore, reducing the risk of fire hazards.
The lubrication interval was extended from 1 month with the polyurea grease to one year with QUAKERTEK™ VERKOFLUOR 862 PFTE thickened grease.
CSI ran a test specific to CSI, which involves holding a blow torch to the grease to see if it catches fire and heating a metal washer until the washerwas glowing from heat.
Quaker introduced QUAKERTEK™ CS 4602-EP into Steelscape’s Galvanize and Cold Mill operations
QUAKERTEK™ AX 2502 EP was trialed by the steel mill, and matched all of the technical requirements of their current grease.
Due to Quaker Chemical’s relationship with the steel mill – providing other products and continuous technical
assistance, the mill requested a replacement for the current grease.
