CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Quaker Chemical Corporation
(NYSE: KWR), a leading global provider of process fluids, has received H1
certification for QUAKEROL^® PCL-FG – a high performance, food grade synthetic
lubricant formulated for use on pin chains in the can manufacturing process.
The synthetic lubricant keeps chains deposit free by minimizing carbon
build-up and provides excellent lubricity, which results in increased
efficiency and reduced wear.

QUAKEROL^® PCL-FG was deemed FDA-compliant for incidental food contact. In
September 2012, H1 certification was obtained – giving QUAKEROL^® PCL-FG
approval as a lubricant for use in and around food processing areas.

"With today's interest in 'green' technology, many beverage manufacturers are
being asked to fill cans produced with food grade synthetic lubricants, in the
event there is incidental food contact. Quaker is now in the unique position
in the US to meet this growing need," comments James Vandenberg, Quaker's
Industry Business Manager – Cans, North America.

The H1 certification was obtained under NSF International's Nonfood Compounds
Registration program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements
(including FDA 21 CFR) for appropriate use, ingredients and labeling.

Products approved for use under this program can be found in NSF's White Book.

Quaker also offers other food gradelubricants to the Can market, including
low-VOC tab lubricants for can end conversion presses, pre-lubricants for tab
stock, and necker lubricants for aluminum bottle cans.
