Low Viscosity Fast Quenching Oil
THERMISOL 1021 is a low viscosity, fast quenching oil for ferrous metals. It is used where maximum part hardness and minimum distortion are required. THERMISOL 1021 furnishes rapid cooling during the initial cooling stage to provide high hardness in both the surface and core of treated steel. Heat extraction is rapid and uniform to maintain uniform hardness, provide higher tensile strength in carburized parts, and greater toughness in carbon steels.
The heat extraction rate of THERMISOL 1021 slows during the final cooling stage to avoid cracking and distortion. THERMISOL 1021 contains anti-oxidants to resist thermal degradation, maintain viscosity and reduce sludge. The low viscosity reduces drag-out for a more economical operation.
For operations with filter systems this product is available as THERMISOL 1032, a version containing a detergent dispersant to enhance filtration effectiveness.
