DIE SLICK® 3550  

One of the world’s largest manufacturers of small gasoline engines was looking to improve productivity within their die casting operations by optimizing their process by eliminating solder and quality issues, and improving biological resistance to minimize maintenance.  Quaker Chemical initiated a thermal imaging study at the manufacturer leading to recommending implementation of DIE SLICK® 3550 with Smart Polymer Technology in their process.  As a result, the customer experienced brighter and cleaner castings, less thermal shock over the life of the die, 40% lower die release consumption, 25% reduction in spray times, and improved biological resistance.
