Finding the right kind of lubrication to reach down in these deep pockets with the spray is therefore a key factor why Comptech is happy to announce the development work made with Chem-Trend.

"In order to get all benefits that Rheocasting introduce to both the foundry and the product owner (OEM) it is key that all other disciplines within the diecasting process also deliver. This to ensure that the product owner can get the design required as weil as the foundry gets the benefits of a cost-effective production. Chem-Trend has extensive experience and proprietary technology to deliver advanced die lubricant that offer the best possible performance for each application" Dr. Per Jansson, CEO Comptech Rheocasting AB

"Chem-Trend truly values the opportunity to collaborate with leaders in the field, like Comptech who are designing next-level casting solutions. Comptech's rheocasting system advances the ability to manufacture large, thin-walled and high-strength castings with long flow lengths. Our commercial and technical teams ensure the release agents used within this process provide excellent metal flow characteristics in thin-wall areas, while also optimizing mi­ crostructure properties essential for high-strength castings. Working alongside Comptech allows us to bring tailorma­ de die lubricant solutions to OEM's and Tier I suppliers. John J. Belyk, senior business development director die cast, Chem-Trend.
