Maximize your Output with Solvent-Based Mold Releases
Solvent-based Mold Release Agents
Hightower Products offers a complete line of solvent-based mold releases that can be specially modified to fit your needs. Solvent based products have the ability to work in a wide range of temperatures and molding conditions. While they have some negatives in terms of environmental, health and safety concerns, from a pure processing standpoint they are hard to beat.
It is increasingly difficult to justify the use of solvent-based mold release as the performance of water-based mold release and co-solvent mold release improve, but there is still a need for them. When you need a solvent-based mold release, turn to the brand you can trust. Call Hightower Products today at (888) 858-1550 and ask them which release agent would work best for your project.
Hightower Products works to provide you with more accessible solutions to your release agent needs. Our products:
- Provide superior release for even the most difficult materials
- User friendly. Very broad operating window
- Eliminates any concerns associated with bacteria/fungus or rusting of the molds
- Formulated in a wide range of solids levels to match your application
Supported Materials and Processes
Solvent based release agents are the “father” of all release agents. This class of products are the starting point for just about all mold releases used today. Solvent based mold release works well in just about every process and with every material. If it were not for the environmental, health and safety issues this would be the only chemistry used today. Our solvent based products are targeted for those processes where water-based or co-solvent chemistry has not advanced to the point where we can replace solvent with an acceptable drop off in performance.
The hidden risk of solvent based release agents is that there are some solvents that may appear “safe” when they really are not. This is where our corporate philosophy of being a good corporate citizen comes into play. We will not utilize any solvent that we would not want to expose ourselves or our workers to and we assess risk not by the current law but what we know of the chemistry. We strive to stay ahead of the curve by avoiding those solvents we know are harmful but either due to legislative lag or corporate lobbying the full risks are not readily apparent.
