An Oil-Free, Non-Flammable, Water Soluble Synthetic Quenchant for the Hardening of Ferrous and Non-Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Alloys




Aqua-Quench 260 is an oil free, non-flammable, water soluble synthetic quenchant for the hardening of ferrous alloys and solution treatment of aluminum alloys.




Aqua-Quench 260 is a versatile water soluble polymer quenchant for use in both ferrous and aluminum alloys.


Aqua-Quench 260 is used for the hardening of ferrous forgings, castings and stampings. It can be used in open quench tanks, continuous furnaces, and selective surface hardening equipment.


The flexibility of quenching speed and uniform heat transfer characteristics of Aqua-Quench 260 eliminates many of the disadvantages of water or mineral oil based quenchants.


Aqua-Quench 260 can also be used for the solution treatment of aluminum alloys. Aqua-Quench 260 complies with Aerospace Material Specification AMS 3025 as a Type I polymer quenchant. It can be used for processing a wide range of aluminum alloys such as 2024, 6061 and 7075, and is suitable for cast and forged components, extruded sections, brazed fabrications and assemblies manufactured from thin gauge sheet.
