MS-143XD | Dry Film Mold Release Agent
Efficient, Consistent Release Properties; Fast-Drying; No VOC;
MS-143XD is a versatile and robust dry film mold release agent / lubricant, which utilizes a rapidly drying, VOC exempt carrier solvent to enhance throughput and production efficiency. The formulation contains a high lubricity, low molecular weight PTFE fluoropolymer designed to not interfere with posting finishing operations. MS-143XD offers the following benefits:
- Efficient, consistent release of molded parts
- Outstanding lubricity and minimization of slip-stick
- VOC exempt formulation
- Nonflammable, Non-ozone depleting
- Non-migrating; Non-staining
Miller-Stephenson has been developing PTFE release agents for over 40 years. This class of release agent yields a uniform, dry film on the mold surface while also offering superior surface adhesion and durability. PTFE mold release agents typically can last numerous molding cycles before re-application is necessary, and is ideal for compression and transfer molding operations. One drawback is its relatively poor performance in injection molding, which requires surface slip that PTFE dry films cannot achieve. PTFE release agents are particular effective in potting and casting molding operations, specifically with electronic potting and casting as PTFE’s chemical inertness and low-transfer will not interfere with the sensitive electronics.
Production engineers will typically choose a PTFE Dry Film mold release agent if they are looking for a non-silicone, chemical inert, and non-transferable release agent that is applicable across a broad range of substrates. PTFE, on a release per application basis is significantly more efficient and cost-effective than sacrificial or PVA alternatives. Miller-Stephenson’s MS-122AV and MS-122SE are formulations which increase the durability and cost-effectiveness even further by addition of proprietary surface activation chemistry.
