CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") expands the breadth of their QUAKERCOOL® 700 series platform with threading process fluid offerings for the mechanical, structural, and OCTG tube and pipe applications:
"For many tube and pipe manufacturers, the annual tooling costs for threading represent a significant expense as compared to the coolant costs. Depending on the complexity of the threading process, Quaker offers multiple solutions to help extend tool life and meet the needs of manufacturers," explained Susan Conley, Tube & Pipe Product Manager.
The metalworking coolants in the QUAKERCOOL® 700 series are high performance mineral oil-free microemulsions with benefits including exceptional lubrication, short term corrosion protection, clean rinsing, and a wide water quality tolerance. They effectively resist microbiological growth and do not contain chlorinated compounds, formaldehyde release agents, boron, monoethanolamine, nor secondary amines. Modularly designed for flexibility and compatibility with upstream chemistries and downstream coatings, the QUAKERCOOL® 700 series delivers a single product technology for use in multiple operations and with various substrates. In addition to thread cutting, the specialized products in this portfolio can also tackle roll forming and hydrotesting.
The QUAKERCOOL® 700 series joins the Quaker "front-to-back" range of processing fluids and coatings for seamless and welded tube and pipe manufacturing. At the front end, Quaker offers fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, specialty greases, hot forming and rolling lubricants, and metalworking fluids while at the back end, it provides a wide range of corrosion preventives and transport coatings, including solvent-based, water-based, and ultraviolet coatings.
Quaker will be exhibiting at Booth N4087 in the Tube & Pipe Pavilion, North Hall 2 at FABTECH 2015, the largest metal-forming, fabricating, tube & pipe, and welding tradeshow in North America. The show takes place at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from November 9-12.
