Quaker Chemical Introduces a Rapid Drying Metal Process Cleaner - QUAKERCLEAN® 680 VDA

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Engine, transmission and component manufacturers utilizing vacuum drying, air knife drying, or any high impact air drying of parts in their cleaning operations often experience challenges including corrosion, de-wetting, and residue build up. Vacuum drying and aggressive blow-offs often result in residual pooling and streaking of the cleaner along the flat, machined surfaces of parts. As a result, the residue needs to be removed before the part can be stored, increasing labor costs and greatly decreasing production. In order to mitigate these manufacturing challenges, Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") has developed QUAKERCLEAN® 680 VDA, a new fast drying process cleaner which delivers a consistent, imperceptible film that protects against corrosion. Excellent for any application that requires minimal residue after the final wash process, QUAKERCLEAN® 680 VDA cleans and protects ferrous and non-ferrous surfaces in a single processing step, simplifying operations and keeping inventory costs low.
