Press release date: November 9, 2012
Exceptional Performance on a Variety of Substrates, Including Polyurethane Foams and Thermoplastics
Rocky Hill, Conn. - A new line of Loctite® Frekote® mold release agents and sealers from Henkel Corporation is designed for use on a variety of substrates, including rigid and elastomeric open cell polyurethane foams. Easy to apply and fast curing, Loctite® Frekote® PU7000™, PU7001™ and PU7200™ semipermanent release agents offer low mold buildup and minimal transfer to simplify production of polyurethane foams and thermoplastic resins, coatings and films.
The three new Frekote® products are clear, solvent-based polymers that are spray applied at temperatures between 95°F and 149°F, drying in just 30 seconds when exposed to ambient moisture at 110°F. All three products are thermally stable to 450°F.
For flexible, resilient polyurethane foams, Loctite® Frekote® PU7000™ allows many releases of open cell or gloss surface foams before mold cleaning is required. Loctite® Frekote® PU7001™ is a high-slip, low transfer release agent that requires very little cleaning of molds and is designed for flexible, resilient polyurethane foams or semirigid polyurethane foams. Loctite® Frekote® PU7200™ is a mold sealer and release agent offering high slip and minimal transfer on both flexible and semirigid polyurethanes.
Loctite® Frekote® PU7000™, PU7001™ and PU7200™ semipermanent release agents are ideal for use on rigid polyurethane foams found on sporting equipment, safety padding, seating and protective guards; on elastomeric, open cell polyurethane foams used in pillows and mattresses; and on thermoplastic resins, coatings and films.
