Henkel Loctite Introduces Aerosolized Frekote S-50
Rocky Hill, Conn. - September 24, 2002. Henkel Loctite Corporation has introduced a new aerosolized formulation of Loctite® Frekote® S-50, a water-based mold release coating with excellent release and slip properties for demanding silicone rubber molding applications.
The convenient aerosol spray packaging for Frekote S-50 eliminates the need to invest in spray equipment, simplifying and reducing the overall cost of the coating application process. This non-flammable aerosol is an effective replacement for many fluorocarbon-based release agents.
Requiring no cure time at elevated temperatures, Frekote S-50 is designed for use in mold temperatures from 220°F to 390°F, at which molding commences as soon as the water carrier evaporates. When properly applied to a preheated surface, this product forms a thin, inert, thermally stable coating that releases most types of silicone rubber. The coating is formulated to provide low mold buildup and reduced reject rates.
