ReleaSys™ TM1 | Tire Curing Bladder Coatings
Next-Generation Water-based Release System, Maximizes releases per Application
ReleaSys™ TM1 is a high-performance, high cross-linking water-based release system specifically designed to be the most advanced Tire Curing Bladder Coatings available. Utilization of a highly advanced polymeric backbone, this coating binds tenaciously to surfaces yielding a highly durable coating with excellent surface slip, ease of release and protection of the bladder surface. Part of a new generation of reactive polysiloxane chemistry, ReleaSys™ TM1 promotes highly efficient bladder release, providing better air evacuation promotion, smoother slip for improved bladder centering and durable release performance, all with the use of lower quantities of the release product. ReleaSys TM1 also helps eliminate the start-up difficulties often associated with new bladders, and works to reduce defect levels throughout the life of the bladder. Application can be to the green tire or directly to the bladder. Benefits of this product include:
- Exceptional release ease and friction reduction
- Multi-release from a single application
- No fillers; Optimized coating weight
- Increased bladder life
- Improves quality and consistency of rubber parts
- Minimized buildup and fouling
ReleaSys TM1: Surface Protection, Optimized Slip, Faster Start-ups
Our tire curing bladder coatings protect the working surface of the curing bladder against chemical and abrasion attack during its service life. Protecting the bladder against the high level of abrasion that occurs in the region it comes into contact with the tire’s bead areas significantly improves its service life. ReleaSys DF tire curing bladder coatings also act as a barrier to help slow down the ingress of sulfur and other compounding ingredients from the hard chafer compound – which leads to hardening of the curing bladder. Providing a barrier to the ingress of these materials helps to further increase bladder life by reducing bladder cracks in the vent lines – a typical cause of early bladder failure. Depending on the bladder type, curing press type and fit to the inside of the tires being cured, customers report significant increases in bladder life after switching to ReleaSys TM1 in average bladder-life of up to 45% when using these coatings.
An additional benefit provided by some of the coatings available in Miller-Stephenson’s range of products is enhanced slip. This helps eliminate the start-up difficulties often associated with new bladders, and works to reduce defect levels throughout the life of the bladder. Our tire curing bladder coatings provide protection to the curing bladders throughout their service life and they will help enhance slip to improve tire uniformity and reduce defects.
ReleaSys TM1 | Tire Curing Bladder Coatings Benefits:
- Improved appearance of the tire exterior due to ease of release
- Reduced defect rate due to reduced surface abrasion, sulfur migration and oxidation effects
- Increased bladder life due to better air evacuation, bladder centering, tire positioning
- Operating cost reduction due to elimination of excessive spray application
- Reduction of release agent costs by utilizing lower amounts per application
