In many sectors, the die-casting industry is facing the challenge of the need to replace solutions that have been established for years with new, more sustainable procedures and starting materials. At the same time, demands on the performance of complex, pressure die-cast components are increasing. For many years now, the surface technology specialist SurTec, together with Chem-Trend, the leading provider of release agents and process chemicals, have studied in detail the influence of release agents on the cleaning and coating process. Collaborative research and development mean that Freudenberg’s associated companies are ideally positioned to be able to develop well-coordinated solutions for these future challenges.

After last year’s positive response, SurTec and Chem-Trend will present their innovative solutions for the industry together again this year at EUROGUSS 2022. At their shared stand at the trade fair, SurTec and Chem-Trend demonstrate how, using precisely fitting, coordinated process chemicals, components are prepared perfectly for their respective purposes in every step of the machining process.


An example of this is the increasing need for pressure die-cast aluminum components, which place the highest demands on the casting process and component quality and which are demolded from the mold tools with tailor-made Chem-Trend release agents. Afterwards, the modern, water-based high-performance cleaners from SurTec remove the release agents without leaving residues and prepare the components optimally for further processing, for example, with the newly developed chromium(VI)-free passivations from SurTec.

SurTec and Chem-Trend provide technologically coordinated and tailor-made solutions for the entire production and value-added process of the components. Their own, jointly undertaken, complex and in-depth studies, together with close collaboration with external research institutions, offers users unsurpassed, perfectly coordinated comprehensive concepts from a single source.

At EUROGUSS 2022, on 18 -20 January 2022, the specialists from SurTec and Chem-Trend will be available in Hall 7A, Stand 7A-110, to respond to all your questions on process optimization and to advise users on the specific challenges in the production process.
