Specially formulated silicone oils and compounds act as very effective mold release agents. They prevent bonding with the surface and improve the surface finish of the cured resins.
As silicone chemistries have inherently high temperature stability, they are ideal for plastic injection molding machines. Our Ecosil line of silicone based aerosols are industry benchmarks for this application.
As silicones have very low surface tension they help facilitate release in pressure sensitive label applications.
Low surface tension also makes the spreading behavior of silicones all the more prominent making them particularly useful in metal molds and rubber tires release.
