Types And Applications Of Mold Release Agent

  •  

    What is a  Mold release agent   ?
    To manufacture products with simple and complex geometries, molds can be used to shape various materials, including plastics, concrete, various metals, and glass. Using molds with different technologies allows manufacturers to produce products of similar shapes in a relatively short period of time. These technologies include injection, compression, extrusion and **** molding. In addition to the mold itself and the materials used to make the product, manufacturers also use mold release agents (also called mold release agents) to create a sliding effect between the material and the mold itself. These mold release agents usually take the form of an oil applied to the inside of the mold, just like buttering the bottom of the pan before baking to remove food. However, due to the diversity of materials that can withstand molding and the differences in molding processes, chemical differences between mold release agents may cause performance differences.

     

    Types of release agent
    When choosing a release agent, please consider the type of mold produced. For example, the reaction of metals and lubricants is different from that of polymers, so different release agents must be used. It is important to realize that, apart from releasing the lubricant from the inside of the mold, the lubricant has little effect on the mold products, otherwise the lubricant may have a chemical effect on the materials used. Manufacturers may want the lubricant to have the additional ability to change the surface composition of the molded product to make it appear glossy or matte. Only certain types of mold release agents have this effect, so care must be taken when choosing them.

    Some materials are more likely to stick inside the mold, so it may be preferable to increase the slip ability of a given release agent. For composite materials (such as cross-linked polymers with complex chemical structures), some areas of the mold may be more difficult to demold than others, so the mold release agent can be combined to produce different degrees of slip in different areas. You must also choose a release agent that does not cause unsightly buildup on the mold or mold product.

    Another important consideration for mold release agents is workplace and environmental safety. If someone comes into contact with these substances, odors, reagents and allergic chemicals can cause problems. Therefore, many mold release agents are made odorless and hypoallergenic, so products exposed to them will not cause reactions from consumers or workers.


    Application of release agent
    The release agent is usually applied through a spray can, although other techniques can also be used. Depending on the additive itself, the application process will be different, so be sure to refer to the manufacturer's instructions before using a given additive in the mold. Some reagents require a thicker coating than others, while others require longer drying times to be effective. Before the project starts, these variables must be known.

    Aerosol cans filled with pressurized release agent can be used by workers or by CNC control machines on the assembly line, although the method of use is different. The release agent can be applied to the mold with a paintbrush (usually used for smaller projects) or a release spray hose (used for more automated projects). The dedicated machine also focuses on applying the release agent to the inside of the mold without releasing potentially dangerous aerosol plumes into the air. When these gases are released, unprotected workers may be exposed to smoke and may also cause a fire because many mold release agents are flammable. Machines that want to reduce these fumes usually use finer atomization technology than spray cans. In addition, they usually rotate fully coated molds faster than brushing techniques.


    Release agent innovation
    Although many mold release agents are composed of hazardous chemicals that require federal regulations, the new trend in mold release agents is to achieve green quality to reduce the possibility of mold release agents and eventual contamination. Many companies are working to improve mold release agents so that they can better compete in an increasingly green market, although it should be noted that not all mold release agents can handle all types of mold materials and mold products. This is because the chemical composition of some water-based "green" mold release agents cannot compete with the extra slippage produced by more powerful chemical bases.

    Alkyl alkyl polysiloxane is the core raw material of die casting water-based mold release agent. It provides excellent heat resistance for the mold release agent formulation, and can maintain the function of the formulation during the die casting process.
