Silicone release agents are used in die cast release, mold release, tire release, plastic release, and concrete release solutions, among other solutions. ACCESS Technologies silicone release technology enables quicker release of products made in molds, such as plastic & metal parts, and food containers, or provides lubricity and slipperiness in applications using rollers, such as newspaper presses and conveyor belts, all resulting in:
- Faster throughput
- Cleaner finished products
- Less material waste
- Longer life of the mold or machinery
The unique properties of silicone release agents:
- Lower surface tension than most polymers
- Higher heat stability than organic alternatives
- Superior oxidation resistance characteristics
- Lower use rates than organics
ACCESS Technologies silicone release products have demonstrated their versatility, reliability, safety and efficiency in a broad range of industrial applications, including:
Die Cast Release
Silicone emulsions and fluids for use in the molding, casting, or extrusion of aluminum or aluminum alloy parts are designed for release of articles that require post-finishing and are also excellent for release of parts to be coated, painted, bonded, or plated.
Durable silicone fluids and emulsions for use in a wide range of mold release agent formulations and mold release applications including the fabrication of plastics, adhesives, elastomeric products, and automotive parts.
Highly efficient and semi-permanent fluids and emulsions for the release of polyurethane and polyester parts, such as shoe soles; automotive parts, including bumpers, crash-pads and dashboards; and microcellular automotive parts and furniture (integral skin).
Silicone emulsion for the release of concrete paver blocks and other concrete parts from rubber molds; reduces mold-removal damage and concrete waste without affecting the ability of the finished parts to be painted or coated.
