Quaker Chemical features metalworking process fluid solutions at FABTECH 2018

Quaker Chemical Corporation offers comprehensive fluid product ranges for tube and pipe and metalworking processes.

In metalworking operations for tube and pipe plus drawing and forming applications, industrial process fluids are challenged to provide universal solutions, but also meet specialised requirements to satisfy the process needs of the customer base.

For the tube and pipe segment, encompassing OCTG, structural, and mechanical applications, Quaker applies its "Front-to-Back" approach consisting of a range of process fluids for the front end of pipe manufacturing and protective coatings, and corrosion preventives to finish at the back end, coupled with the expertise to implement customised solutions for specific customer needs:

The versatile and chemically compatible QUAKERCOOL® 700 TP coolant fluid platform can be utilised across multiple processes, metal substrates, and tube and pipe market segments

The QUAKERCOAT® coating line offers a wide range of options for solvent based, water based, and ultraviolet (UV) cured coatings for corrosion protection and aesthetics

For applications involving drawing and forming, the high-performance QUAKERDRAW® metal forming lubricant line is a solution with excellent corrosion protection and lubrication to increase die and punch life, and high film strength additives to reduce galling.

The overall product line offers a range of product types including emulsifiables, neat oils, and solution synthetic fluids; versatility in applications for light, medium, or heavy forming; roll forming; cold heading; and hydroforming and non-chlorinated lubricant options

Quaker will be exhibiting these products and application expertise at Booth C10223 (Welding and Tube and Pipe Hall) at FABTECH 2018, the largest metal forming, fabricating, tube and pipe, and welding tradeshow in North America. The event takes place at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia from 6th - 8th November.
