Quaker introduces metalworking fluid to US aerospace industry

CONSHOHOCKEN, US: The Aerospace industry faces complex challenges from the development of innovative next-generation aircraft programme to increasing demand for improved quality control and performance. Quaker Chemical continually supports customers in meeting industry challenges with high-performance fluids. To meet these challenges, Quaker has introduced QUAKERCOOL 7000 ALF BAF, a European approved machining and grinding coolant, to the US aerospace industry.

After an aerospace supplier requested that QUAKERCOOL 7000 ALF BAF, a metalworking fluid historically used in Europe, be sampled and tested for use in the US market, Quaker faced a challenge to make the product compliant with the US Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) while maintaining global availability. However, Quaker’s team of US and European chemists successfully adapted this advanced technology to meet both US and European aerospace industry requirements.

Through the collaborative effort, QUAKERCOOL 7000 ALF BAF is now available in the US. The technology is preferred for aluminum alloys used in the aerospace industry. The coolant has low alkalinity properties that aid in the prevention of staining the aluminum and tested successfully for the machining of a large population of aerospace aluminum alloys. Quaker also offers other approved machining and grinding coolants such as QUAKERCOOL 6010 ND to the Aerospace industry.
