Piercing & Forming

Quaker Houghton's Tubeshield® series of lubricants is designed for use in tubular steel rolling. This series includes synthetic coolants and hot rolling lubricants that offer a variety of advantages over other products, including ease of application, excellent foam control and protection against fungal and bacterial attack. Tubeshield 690 is a high-temperature, semi-synthetic lubricant for use in the hot rolling of steel or iron pipe. Tubeshield 6045 is a water-dilutable concentrate that provides short-term corrosion inhibition for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Tubeshield 3233 is a premium-quality synthetic coolant for straightening and final sizing of steel tubes. Our team of specialists will work with you on-site or remotely to match your operation’s needs with the best product for the job.

Hydrotesting

Hydrotesting is an important step in manufacturing quality tubes & pipes and Quaker Houghton's hydrotesting fluids utilize an advanced lubrication technolgy that rinses clean and leaves an excellent non-tacky residue. The mixed solutions make up a pleasant odor for good operator acceptance while providing an excellent short-term corrosion protection and bioresistance at low concentrations.
