Many molders are still using high-volume, apply-every-cycle release coatings because they are wary of changing their process or haven’t had much trial success with semi-permanent release agents poorly suited to their operation.
Whether you are hesitant to change your process or haven’t yet found a semi-permanent that adds value to your operation, our experienced Technical Representatives can help you select the optimal McLube® semi-permanent release for your needs as well as guide your engineers and operators through the transition. Our goal is to provide you with a semi-permanent release agent that is easy for your operators to control, requires no additional equipment, and achieves all of your process goals and more.
Every product in McLube’s diverse line of semi-permanent release agents is designed to furnish a thin, durable releasing film and achieve optimal adhesion to the substrate. Regardless of process conditions or materials involved, these two essential characteristics are crucial to maximizing releases per application and producing more aesthetically pleasing parts per shift without transfer or excessive buildup. Our line of semi-permanent release agents includes water and solvent-based options of various types and chemistries, including silicone-free options, concentrates, and heat-cured coatings in bulk or aerosol form.
