Upon surveying the customer’s operations, the Quaker Houghton team determined that the rusting resulted from an uneven coating with an inconsistent adhesion throughout the length of the pipe. The optimized use of QUAKERCOAT® 547 and the prompt and in-depth service and technical support impressed the plant personnel.
Maximum fire resistance, enhanced job site safety, reduced downtime, lower maintenance costs
Quaker Houghton selected the water based coating, QUAKERCOAT® 856 GREEN for evaluation. The formula was customized to match the color tone, appearance, and flexibility; and to work with the limitations of the existing equipment. Additionally, the product properties were modified to be able to comply with downstream process requirements including the forming press.
To meet the specific needs of the tube manufacturer, Quaker Houghton developed QUAKERCOAT® 031 LE UV, a high gloss, UV cured protective coating. The formulation was targeted to work with the limitation of the company’s low energy curing lamps as well as having high flexibility for subsequent bending operations. In addition, a proprietary additive enhanced how the coat¬ing flowed on a galvanized substrate while maintaining the desired flexibility and low cure attributes.
