CONSHOHOCKEN, US: Quaker Chemical Corporation presents its die casting product line, including die release agents with smart polymer technology, plunger lubricants, ladle coatings, machining coolants and QUINTOLUBRIC fire-resistant hydraulic fluids.  

One constant challenge in the die casting industry is uneven die protection resulting from the temperature variation on the die surface. Temperature variation is caused by the variability in die size, design, complexity, flow of alloy through the die, and heat profile of each system. Traditional die lubricants, unable to adapt to the disparity in die temperatures, can be good at protecting hot areas of the die, but can produce residue build-up in cooler areas causing:

  • Lost production time
  • Complications with solder on the casting
  • Extra die maintenance

To this end, Quaker has formulated Smart Polymer technology based on heat activated polymers. DIE SLICK die release agents formulated with Smart Polymer technology 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
