Mould release agent

Mould release agent

Mould release agent

We manufacture a Bonded Seal - rubber compound ( EPDM , Nitrile, etc) which is bonded to the inner diameter of a steel washer, to which a bonding agent has been earlier applied.
We use a variety of presses - Compression Transfer, Direct injection for instance.

Does the Forum have any experience of types of release spray for use on the press platens, that is not detrimental to the bonding action?

All advice gratefully received.
Thanks in advance


RE: Mould release agent

Our suppliers of similar products as yours use a sprayed-on solution called Crystal Mold release, they spray it on the preheated mold, and it dries, then they lay in the prepared insert.

I think this is the mfgr.: http://www.franklynnusa.com/custom-formulated-mold...

Also, you might talk to the people at Lord Chemicals http://www.lord.com/LokRelease?types=ProductDetail...

Lord makes some of the most trusted bonding and release agents.

Good luck!

RE: Mould release agent

Thanks for your reply btrueblood, we do in fact use Lord for Bonding Agents, appreciate the Franklynn lead though.
