Die Casting: 70% Increase in Parts Produced

2020-03-18T03:37:49-04:00

The Quaker Houghton team worked closely with the customer to better understand their production process and analyze the structure of the casting. Quaker Houghton recommended DIE SLICK® AD 32 as a solution. This product was chosen because it does not contain wax, and has good film-forming performance at high tempera¬tures.

Die Casting: Eliminating Porosity and Improving Cleanliness with Plunger Beads

2020-03-18T03:39:06-04:00

Quaker Houghton recommended POLY SLICK™ 76-P 1.0 – 1.5 mm plunger beads. This solution was chosen because plunger beads create less carbon build-up than traditional plunger lubricants, resulting in cleaner working environments. Also, POLY SLICK™ 76-P demonstrates strong adherence to the plunger tip, extends tip and sleeve life with excellent boundary lubrication, and reduces cycle times.

Die Casting: 91% Wear Reduction by using Polyol Ester HFD-U Fields

2020-03-18T03:46:16-04:00

Quaker Houghton’s QUINTOLUBRIC® polyol ester HFD-U fluids are fire-resistant hydraulic fluids that do not contain water. HFD fluids are usually based on synthetic base stocks or esters that combine reasonable to good fire-resistant properties with excellent lubrication performance. HFD fluids are designed to operate in oil hydraulic equipment.
