Quaker Hougton History
In 2019, Quaker Chemical Corporation and Houghton International combined to form Quaker Houghton, creating a $1.6 billion entity that employs 4,000 associates serving 15,000 customers worldwide.
Both companies brought extensive experience and product offerings to the table, with Quaker having been founded in 1918 and Houghton in 1865. Together, they now provide a range of products and services for aerospace, automotive, industrial parts manufacturing, mining, offshore, and steel industries.
Quaker Houghton Products
“One of the most popular products that we supply for them is the Mine Foam, which is used to spray into areas to make a solid seal to control airflow in underground mining applications.”
“Mine Foam is very easy to use and is more efficient that its competitors. Operators let us know how much they use a month so we can arrange to have regular shipments sent to them around their schedule.”
Quaker Houghton’s range of products includes longwall fluids, fire-resistant and speciality hydraulic fluids, gear lubricants, storage fluids, water-soluble gels and industrial greases. For mining applications, their dust suppression solutions are particularly important for reducing dust generation of airborne particulate matter in dust-prone areas, creating a more breathable atmosphere and reducing the risk of fire.
Minetech Q-foam spray polyurethane is a disposable, closed-cell spray foam kit that is applied using low-pressure dispersion equipment and consists of two chemical components. The foam creates an airtight seal around mine ventilation devices to improve efficiency, expanding six-ten times its original volume and becoming tack-free within 30 seconds.
