About These Products
|McLube® Tire Mold Release Coatings (TMR)|
Our tire mold coatings are designed to facilitate release of the cured tire while also improving finished tire aesthetics and aiding material flow. McLube® currently offers a variety of semi-permanent and sacrificial tire mold coatings to suit the diverse and stringent requirements of the tire industry.
|McLube® Inside Tire Paint (ITP)|
We currently offer a variety of inside tire paints, including filled, unfilled, and silicone-free options. McLube® can tailor any existing inside tire paint to suit your individual process requirements. All of our inside tire paints are water-based and inherently VOC-free.
|McLube® Tire Bladder Coatings (TBC)|
McLube® has developed a line of highly durable bladder coatings that are designed to protect the bladder against physical and chemical abrasion during the curing process to extend bladder lifespan and eliminate defects. McLube® also offers bladder touch-up lubricants for application overtop of our bladder coatings to add additional slip for startup on new bladders.
|Custom-formulated Tire Release Aids|
McLube® also offers custom-formulated tire release agents and lubricants to help manufacturers achieve specific process goals like eliminating post-cure cleaning steps, cost reduction, and prototype transfer to full production. Our Technical Representatives and Formulation Chemists have the knowledge and expertise necessary to work with your engineers and operators to solve your most complex tire manufacturing challenges. Contact McLube® today and tell us about your process goals.
|McLube® Anti-tack Coatings|
McLube® also offers external anti-tack coatings for uncured rubber anti-tack applications like slab-dip and batch-off. Our anti-tack formulas are highly dilutable liquid emulsions and solutions that do not pose the safety and housekeeping concerns associated with powdered coatings and stearates. Some McLube® tire mold release coatings may also be used for anti-tack applications, limiting the number of process aids that must be shipped, tracked, and stored in your facility.
