MS-143AX | Universal PTFE Release Agent
Broad Range of Applications; Proprietary Binder Agent; Extended Reapplication Intervals
MS-143AX Universal PTFE Release Agent contains a proprietary surface activator that combined with PTFE results in superior initial release action with up to 5 times the number of release cycles on metal molds. It is not recommended for use on rubber molds. MS-143AX Universal PTFE Release Agent is an excellent dry lubricants for rubber on steel application. Note: MS-143AX can only be applied by dip coating or wiping applications, it can not be sprayed.
- Enhanced surface adhesion and durability to metallic molds
- Minimized initial release force
- Nonflammable; Chemically Inert
- Low coefficient of friction
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-143AX | Universal 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 and MS-122SE are formulations which increase the durability and cost-effectiveness even further by addition of proprietary surface activation chemistry.
Miller-Stephenson offers a selection of specialized formulations which provide high performance solutions for your molding process.
