Polymer quenchants were developed by Ross Blackwood, the founder of Tenaxol, in the early 1960’s and the first UCON® products were patented in 1965 as a safe alternative to oil quenching, owing to their unique polyalkylene glycol chemistry plus corrosion inhibitors. The products also yield superior surface integrity on all ferrous and non-ferrous metals, when compared to water quenching, especially in the areas of thermal cracking and distortion.   UCON® brand polymer quenchants have become the industry standard over the years and the full range of products today includes UCON® ULTRAQUENCH PLUS, featuring advanced anti-microbial protection and enhanced foam control, plus a non-nitrite corrosion inhibitor for improved surface protection.  Additionally, UCON® ULTRAQUENCH RL PLUS is an ideal solution for quenching medium high-carbon steels and most alloyed grades, including 300 and 400 Series stainless.

Chemtool is a global leader in the formulation and supply of various lubricants, cleaning agents, cutting fluids for metalworking machinery and other solutions for a wide variety of industrial applications.nThe company is also a major private label supplier to the distribution channels at many of the giants in the off-highway and other machinery markets.

2aDuring the show, Tenaxol personnel will be available to discuss all quenchant applications and metallurgical quench conditions.

Tenaxol has factory sales based in the Rockton, Illinois headquarters, near Chicago, plus manufacturers’ representative offices in strategically located cities throughout North America.
