MOLD RELEASE is an easy to use Silicone emulsion (i.e. milky white emulsion of Dimethyl Polysiloxane fluid). It is used as mold release agent and shining agent for tyre, rubber, and plastic industries. It is also used in High-speed offset printing process. In the plywood manufacturing industry, it prevents build up of glue and promotes easy removal of excess glue on platens and other parts of the presses used. In lamination and wood industry it is used as anti-tack material to the platens. It is used in glass industry for conveying equipments, treating molds, molded glass articles.
Mould Release is best used by being diluted with water to give a 0.5 % - 2 % active content. Higher concentration may be preferable under special circumstances. The diluted emulsion is best applied as a spray. Brushing is also feasible but may result in over application at some places. Application of excess quantities should be avoided as it may result in surface irregularities and poor welds. When spraying, it is recommended to adjust the spray nozzle to give a fine, barely visible fog, making a single pass across the full surface. The method is likely to give a number of releases per application.
