Leading supplier of quenchants to commercial and captive heat treaters will also display assortment of Chemtool lubricants and greases for the industry Pioneers in the development of polymer quenchants back in the 1960’s, Tenaxol, part of the Chemtool family of companies in Rockton, Illinois, will demonstrate its comprehensive line of UCON brand polymer quenchants at this year’s Furnaces North America show, being held October 6-8 in Nashville, Tennessee. Tenaxol will be located in Booths 300-302 at the show.  

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.
