Non Stick Release Coating | ShieldSys™ MX120
Next Generation Crosslinking Technology, Superior Durability and Non Stick Effect, Ideal for High Throughput Manufacturers
ShieldSys™ MX120 is a non stick release coating and sealer developed exclusively by Miller-Stephenson. MX120 is designed to provide a robust and efficient non stick coating for molders. Next generation crosslinking nanoceramic technology forms a continuous, highly structured thin film on surfaces. Once cured onto surfaces, the MX120 provides superior non stick properties, ease of cleaning, and excellent mold protection. Coated surfaces are substantially easier to clean and reduces buildup and fouling. The combined properties benefits molders with highly aggressive or tacky substrates. ShieldSys MX120 is ideally utilized for continuous mold release scenarios such as rollers, high throughput molds, large complex mold geometries and numerous other applications. Properly applied, our product develops a durable, thin film on surfaces typically between 1.0 – 5.0 µm. ShieldSys™ MX120 is ideally paired with one of our ReleaSys™ mold release agents to greatly extended coating life, reduce build up, and minimize reapplications.

ShieldSys™ MX120 Non Stick Release Coating offers exceptional performance and ease of application. Developed to eliminate the decision of manufactures between semi permanent mold release agents and expensive permanent solutions. ShieldSys MX120 is applied at room temperature and cured for 1 – 2 hours at temperatures 100 – 175°C. It can be applied with low pressure spray equipment or applied with cloth. Our formulation offer superior leveling and flow out, meaning that uneven application is automatically corrected for. The resulting cured coating will have a film thickness of < 5-10 microns. and offer superior anti corrosion and anti stick properties. This is typically seen most significantly in polyurethane molding where a water-based mold release system is utilized. To further improve overall performance and surface quality, Miller-Stephenson recommendations utilizing our ReleaSys 7400 or 7200W.
ShieldSys™ Permanent Release Coating – Cleaner Molds, More Consistent Release, Fewer Reapplication – a potent combination
ShieldSys™ MX120 can function as both a mold sealer and permanent release coating for a variety of configuration. Miller-Stephenson still typically recommends that a ReleaSys Mold Release Coating is used to help maintain, enhance, and extend the working life of the ShieldSys MX120. For recommendations on which coating would be best in your molding configuration please contact a Miller-Stephenson Technical Sales or Technical Support team member for a optimal recommendation. Unlike the ReleaSys™ MOLD SEALER which functions as solely a release enhancer, ShieldSys MX120 is dual functional and offers superior long term performance and durability.
