MS-145W | Water-based Mold Release Agents
Sub-micron PTFE; Exceptional Release Properties; No Transfer
Miller-Stephenson’s PTFE Water-based Mold Release Agents MS-145W, utilizes sub 1.0 micron PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) particles to impart superior lubricity, surface adhesion and durability, and outstanding mold release efficiency. The unmatched lubricity and extremely low coefficient of friction has been optimized for hot mold application (>190 F / 88 C). The formulation has been further enhanced with proprietary surface activation chemistry to increase adhesion of the PTFE to the molding surface. The result is a water-based release agent that is very cost-effective, maximizing releases per application and decreasing down-time. Benefits of this product include:
- Water-based Release Agent ; Hot mold optimized
- Enhanced surface adhesion; Maximized durability
- Excellent release of all polymer types
- Non-flammable; No VOC; No GWP
Miller-Stephenson has been developing PTFE Water-based Mold 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 Water-based 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.
Production engineers will typically choose PTFE-based release agents if they are looking for a dry film, chemical inert, and non-transferable release agent that is applicable across a broad range of substrates, specifically for rubber to metal bonding. PTFE, on a release per application basis is significantly more efficient and cost-effective than sacrificial-based alternatives. Miller-Stephenson’s MS-145W and ReleaSys 8200 are formulations which increase the durability and cost-effectiveness even further by addition of proprietary surface activation chemistry.
