ShieldSys™ MX120 | Permanent Release Coating
Next-Generation Crosslinking Technology, Superior Durability and Anti-Stick Effect, Ideal for High-Throughput Manufacturers
ShieldSys™ MX120 is a permanent release coating developed exclusively by Miller-Stephenson to be the most robust and efficient release/anti-stick coating available to molders. Utilization of next-generation crosslinking nanoceramic technology, our coating forms a continuous, highly structured thin film on surfaces. Miller-Stephenson has brought to market a coating with unmatched durability, anti-stick properties, and superior release for virtually any moldable substrate. ShieldSys™ MX120 generates a hard, lubricious coating on metallic, ceramic and plastic surfaces that offers supreme abrasion and chemical resistance and is ideal for continuous and high-throughput molding configurations. Moreover thanks to optimal anti-stick properties ShieldSys MX120 Permanent release coating provides mold surfaces with an easy-clean surface and lower build-up. This greatly benefits production teams as the result is fewer offline cleaning requirements such as media blasting or aggressive solvents usages and more time online, producing parts. 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 10-20 µm. ShieldSys™ MX120 can also be used in numerous anti-stick applications and is resistant to temperatures up to 275 °C. ShieldSys™ MX120 is ideally paired with one of our ReleaSys™ Semi-Permanent release agents to greatly extended coating life, reduce build-up, and minimize reapplications. Ideal topcoats include: ReleaSys 8000, ReleaSys 7500, and ReleaSys 7200W. Benefits include:
- Next-Generation Crosslinking Technology
- Extremely Hard, Durable Thin-Film coating
- Exceptional Release and Anti-Stick Properties
- Ideal for continuous production, high throughput, and large mold configurations
- Provides unmatched lubricity and extremely low coefficient of friction
- Pairs seamlessly with any ReleaSys Coating System
- Clean, Non-oily, Non-migrating
ShieldSys™ MX120 – Superior Chemistry, Superior Results
ShieldSys™ MX120 Permanent Release Coating offers exceptional performance and ease of application. Developed from the inception to eliminate the decision of manufactures between semi-permanent mold release agents and expensive permanent solutions which require third party coating companies, ShieldSys™ MX120 allows manufactures to be more in control of their mold coatings without investment in high temperature ovens or spray systems. 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 while also substantially increasing release ease and lower build-up. 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 offer superior long-term performance and durability.
