IFP quenching oils are formulated from highly refined base stocks with inherently high thermal stability. Additives include anti-oxidants for longer bath life at elevated temperatures, rust inhibitors, wetting agents that alter surface tensions and aid cooling during the vapor phase and other accelerators to achieve specific quenching characteristics. The quenching of steel involves cooling at a sufficiently fast rate to reach your desired hardness and avoid the formation of soft constituents, cracking or distortion. When steel is quenched, the surface is cooled more rapidly than the center. By increasing the cooling rate, the center will reach the desired full hardness.


  • Controlled cooling rate to minimize cracking and distortion
  • Excellent oxidation resistance
  • Thermal stability
  • Maintain Good Hardness Control
  • High flash point for fire safety
  • Easily Reclaimed for Further Use

Health and Safety

These oils are unlikely to present any significant health or safety hazard when properly used in the recommended application and good standards of industrial and personal hygiene are maintained 100% recyclable.


IFP Quenching oils are recommended for general purpose fast quenching applications. It is recommended for hardening of many components, in automobile and light engineering industries. This product is particularly used for hardening of bolts, set screws, crankshafts, axle’s camshafts, steering arms and brake drums..
