Working with our customers, we help unleash potential. Due to the uniqueness of each of these processes, as well as the diversity of the raw materials utilized, we fulfill exacting needs with solutions that maximize efficiency. Die cast release agents and chemical specialities must be designed to perform brilliantly in the harshest of conditions and materials. Our unique, robust, formulated products have been developed to serve as plunger lubricants and die lubricants that meet or exceed expectations. All with an eye toward delivering better results and processes.
Our highly regarded dilution products are best-of-breed, and designed to create exceptional ease and value. Our innovative portfolio is based on an extensive suite of polymer technologies developed and synthesized to specifically provide exceptional on-die performance, helping die casters see less downtime and higher-quality rates due to lower levels of porosity.
In addition to products, we also proudly offer to help optimize effectiveness. Like our High Efficiency Release Agent (HERA™) micro-spray technology that revolutionizes release agents, allowing customers to applying far less agent. This allows for maximum efficiency using minimal product, and creating a new paradigm in manufacturing potential.
Our die lubricants are engineered to actually enhance your processes, allowing you to gain efficiency. Die lubricants can be engineered to provide exceptional release and die/solder protection with optimized wetting, promote metal flow, quickly cool die surfaces, and maintain a die temperature within a narrow band, all of which allow for faster cycle times and longer die life.MORE
Plunger lubricants are used to minimize the wear to the plunger tip and sleeve, thus increasing its lifetime and reducing the downtime for replacement. They also help provide a seal around the tip to prevent intensification pressure issues from molten metal leaking around the plunger tip which also causes mechanical problems and additional wear. Chem-Trend makes a wide range of products to protect the shot-end components and assist in the production of high-quality castings, while minimizing any adverse environmental effects.MORE

Die Lubricant Central System Maintenance
Die lubricant central systems and spray systems are key components of a finely tuned die cast process. Regular system cleanings are not only recommended as part of a preventative maintenance program, but also essential to get the most out of your lubricant. Over time, dissolved minerals and biological contamination from dilution water can clog feed lines and spray systems. Extended shutdown periods can present a great opportunity for a thorough system cleaning and lead to a fresh and reinvigorated start to production.
Let us get to work for you. Contact us today for a free consultation and information about available maintenance products best suited for you.
