New smart polymer™ technology for the die casting industry

Uneven die protection caused by temperature variation on the die surface has been a constant challenge in the die casting industry. 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, less demanding areas, causing: • Complications with solder on the casting • Lost production time • Extra die maintenance To solve these challenges, Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") Subsidiary – G.W. Smith & Sons developed Smart Polymer™ Technology, a heat activated additive. DIE SLICK® die lubricants with Smart Polymer™ Technology are able to form an evenly distributed, tough, protective die coating when exposed to hot areas of the die, but do not accumulate residue in cooler areas. This unique property translates to: • Reduced solder on castings • Increased productivity • Enhanced release and wetting characteristics • Bright and clean castings Quaker will be exhibiting at the 2015 NADCA International Die Casting Congress & Exposition
