Mold Release Agents for Natural Rubber and Synthetic Rubber
Rubber is extremely versatile and can be used to make everything from shoe soles, rubber grommets, o-rings, hoses, and hundreds of other parts. Since rubber is typically not very reactive and is almost solid when molded, it is not too "sticky" of a process and so having an aggressive mold release is not necessary. Instead, the process requires a thin but durable film that will remain bonded to the metal. When rubber mold release agents are too thick, the residue can be collected during the injection process and deposited on the metal components. This will result in either knit-lines in the fusing of the rubber compounds or delamination of the rubber from the metal component which will often produce defective parts.
We serve various industries, from medical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, food, chemical, building, electronics, construction, automotive, and plumbing. If you need a reliable natural or synthetic rubber mold release mixture, we can create a solution that performs every time.
