Water Based Release Agent Controls Gloss Range with In-Mold Painted Urethane Systems

Huron Technologies, Inc. announces a new technology development that prevents mold build up from triggering the usual increase in gloss that occur within-mold painted polyurethane applications. According to Huron's President/Director of Product Development, Clarke Borgeson, "This breakthrough in molding technology would be expected to increase the number of parts which can be made before the molds must be cleaned. The specified gloss quality can be maintained with less frequent cleaning." In addition, Borgeson commented that this new Release Agent 7772 is an adjustment to existing technology. Reduced cleaning requirements cut manufacturing costs.

Release Coating 7772 provides smooth, defect free parts which replicate precisely the fine surface detail of the mold. The in-mold painted parts have a consistent, defect free, appearance with a dry, non-tacky feel and excellent resistance to scuff and mar. Typical applications include automotive steering wheels, handles and interior trim components as well as office furniture components.

This product is available in 5 gallon containers and 55 gallon drums. Huron Technologies, Inc. provides standard and custom formulated release coatings for a wide range of molding applications.
