Quenching is the change in a steel’s cristallographic structure thanks to a rapid cooling to improve or obtain certain materials properties. This cooling rate depends on the geometry of the workpieces and the steel nuance different. It can be achieved using mineral base oils or polymers diluted into water, either by dipping or by spray in the case of induction hardening.

Our lubricants for quenching

TotalEnergies quenching oils match all thermal treatment requirements and all types of installation. Formulated from base oils selected for their exceptional resistance to oxidation, they offer a cost-effective means of enhancing the mechanical properties of components.

Our lubricants for cold quenching: DRASTA C series

DRASTA C series are suitable for cold quenching and can be used for a wide range of geometrical workpieces and a all kind of steels from low to high Martensite start (MS).

Our lubricants for hot quenching: DRASTA H series

DRASTA H series are suitable for martempering and are mainly dedicated to gear quenching with a high resistance to oxydation.

Our lubricants for polymer quenchants: DRASTA SY

DRASTA SY series are polymer quenchants. Diluted into water they prevent fire risk. Their cooling rate can be adjusted with their concentration.
