Relevance of release agents
Release agents are an indispensable part of many modern production processes. As an auxiliary material, they contribute to efficiency and effectiveness within the scope of production – their actual value is however frequently underestimated. Although release agents were merely a necessary measure at one time to prevent mould sticking, today they increase productivity, accelerate the entire process, ensure perfect product quality and increase the service life of the machinery involved.
Launch of innovative MK-5226
As one of the leading manufacturers of release agents and auxiliary materials for the production of technical rubber parts worldwide, Münch Chemie is continually developing innovative solutions that fit customers’ specific requirements.
In order to meet market expectations, Münch Chemie has recently launched its innovative solvent-based treatment for metallic surfaces, MK-5226, that is ready-to-use and universally applicable and serves both as primer and as anti-corrosive coating.
When applied to mould surfaces as a primer prior to application of mould release agents, MK-5226 significantly increases release performance and mould lifetime. Furthermore, the product provides sufficient corrosion protection during storage of metal moulds. After storage, there is no need for cleaning of moulds and removal of the corrosion protection.
Customer trials have shown extremely long mould service lives in combination with the company’s highly efficient mould release agents from the MK-229 series.
Munch Chemie’s products release all types of elastomers, except silicone-rubber, and are applicable for all production processes (injection, compression and transfer moulding).
