MS-143TE | PTFE Mold Release Agents
Superior Utility; Robust Release Agent Performance; Highly Cost-Effective
MS-143TE was developed as an efficient, economical and universal release agent. This PTFE mold release agents is a nonflammable, non-ozone depleting release agent/dry lubricant, containing a suspension of low-molecular PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) fluoropolymers. As a dry lubricant, MS-143TE minimizes “slip-stick” and is ideal for low speed, light load applications. MS-143TE offers the following benefits:
- Enhanced release agent durability/adhesion
- Efficient and consistent release of molded parts
- Outstanding lubricity (low coefficient of friction)
- Nonflammable, Non-ozone depleting formulation
- 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.
Why Choose MS-143TE | PTFE Mold Release Agents
Production engineers will typically choose PTFE 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, MS-122SE, and MS-143TE are formulations which increase the durability and cost-effectiveness even further by addition of proprietary surface activation chemistry. Many can be considered universal release agent.
