ReleaSys™ 8000 | Plastic Release Agent
Optimized for Plastic Injection Molding, Aggressive Polyurethane Formulations, and Composites
ReleaSys™ 8000 Plastic Release Agent is an advanced release system designed for today’s modern aggressive and fast paced molding platforms. When paired with ShieldSys™ MX120 Permanent Mold Coating, manufacturers observe a quantitative improvement in product throughput, reduced downtime, and consistent release throughout the entire production campaign. ReleaSys™ 8000 offers excellent compatibility with nearly all thermoplastic and thermosetting resins. Thanks to Miller-Stephenson’s tireless development work, ReleaSys™ 8000 provides an ultra thin, non transferring plastic release agent film that controls mold fouling and product quality. This allows molded parts to be painted, glued, or bonded without the need for time-consuming post mold washing or modification.
Benefits of Plastic Release Agent Coatings:
- Advanced Thin Film Release Coating
- Designed Specifically for Modern Plastic Resin Molding
- Ideal for Thermoplastics, Polyurethane, Epoxies, & Composites
- Facilitates Resin Flow and Improve Surface Quality
- Semi Permanent Release, Minimal reapplication
- Consistent and Reliable Ejection and Release
Whether you are molding polycarbonate, high density polyethylene, advanced composites or polyurethane our ReleaSys™ 8000 plastic mold release agent system will provide clean, efficient, and cost effective release. Unlike other mold release agents, ReleaSys utilizes advanced polymer chemistry to form a durable release film which binds tenaciously to mold surfaces. The adhesion and durable allows numerous mold cycles to be completed without reapplication. Moreover, plastic products maintain perfect surface characteristics due to enhanced resin flow. Miller-Stephenson prides itself at being at the forefront of mold release chemistry, we offer advanced low odor and low VOC solvent based formulations as well as no VOC waterborne formulations.
Applications of Plastic Release Agents Coatings
- High Tack Thermoplastics
- Aggressive TPU and Polyurethane applications
- Highly filled Epoxy and Composites substrates
- High draft or geometrically challenging molds
- Superior Release of most moldable substrates
- Easy to apply
Standard plastic release agents typically compromise by having excellent mold release properties but will cause rapid mold fouling. Others offer excellent cleanliness but cause unpredictable release or higher defect rates. ReleaSys™ 8000 plastic release agent makes zero compromises, providing consistent release, exceptional surface quality, cleaner molds and parts. Advanced resin chemistry, produces a more efficient coating, leading to lower application amounts and increased surface lubricity. Lower usage has the added benefit of drastically increasing mold cleanliness and improving surface aesthetics.
ReleaSys™ 8000 – Increased Throughput, Cleaner Operation, Less Downtime – Superior Chemistry, Superior Result
At Miller-Stephenson, we not only understand the challenges that plastic molding creates for thermoplastic processors, we also recognize the diversity of raw materials utilized in the process. Although injection molding is a common term, each thermoplastic processing operation is unique, and addressing the needs of each processor requires an understanding of that processor’s unique needs. Distinctive, robust, formulated products have been developed to serve your requirements and positively affect the efficiency of your process, the quality of your products and your operational costs. Our ReleaSys plastic release agent products have a long, distinct pedigree in the plastic industry where we have identified key aspect to focus on when optimizing our ReleaSys™ product line: high efficiency rates, precise surface quality requirements and high tooling costs are focal points for Miller-Stephenson’s development of products for the thermoplastic injection molding process.
