MS-122AV | PTFE release agent
Superior Surface Adhesion; Extended Reapplication Intervals; High Durability
MS-122AV combines high-efficiency low-molecular weight polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and proprietary surface activation chemistry. This PTFE release agent yields superior adhesion of PTFE to metallic, glass, and non-plastic surfaces. The result is unmatched durability, extended reapplication intervals and virtually no transfer. MS-122AV is ideal for composite molding and for a users most difficult molding operations MS-122AV advantages include:
- Unparalleled release agent durability
- Ideal for difficult mold geometries
- Improves quality and consistency of molded parts
- Nonflammable; Non-ozone depleting formulation
- Non-migrating; Non-staining
Miller-Stephenson has been developing PTFE release agents for over 40 years. We is a global leader in the development of value-adding specialty release agents. We offer an expansive portfolio of release agents tailor-made for many different industrial applications. 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-122AV | PTFE release agent?
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 is a formulation which increase the durability and cost-effectiveness even further by addition of proprietary surface activation chemistry.
