• Quenching Fluids

For many heat treaters, oil or water based quenchants provide the quench severity necessary to achieve the metallurgical and physical properties required of intricately shaped parts.

DuBois oil quenchants are ideal solutions for quenching a variety of grade steels and high-hardenability alloys. They provide you the following benefits:

  • Maximum quench control for predictable performance
  • Easy cleaning for brighter work
  • Exceptional oxidation-resistance and thermal stability to maximize bath life
  • Less drag-out to minimize usage and cost

While minimizing part distortion or breakage, water-based quenchants offer high hardness with fast faster quenching speeds than oil. Water based fluids are:

  • Non-flammable
  • Easier to clean off compared to oil
  • Can be used at a variety of concentrations to achieve required hardness
  • Resistant to petroleum market price fluctuations

DuBois technical department works with many customers required to meet CQI-9 and AMS 2759 specifications.
