Mold Release Agents For Polyurethane Foams

Developed after intense research and with experience acquired in diverse industries, Concentrol has created a range of mold release agents for polyurethane foams, offering flexibility and agility in adapting production processes. The main industries of application include: automotive, construction, insulation (thermal and sound), furniture and footwear. Quality is guaranteed by the ISO 9001/2008 certificate, and preservation of the environment is certified by the ISO 14001 certificate.

Security of supply is ensured due to a great production capacity, and Concentrol offers a wide range of products, with others in constant development. The company can develop and adapt new products to fully satisfy the requirements of each customer

Concentrol’s mold release agents prevent high-adhesion polyurethane foams from sticking to molds, and allows pieces to be removed without imperfections. There is a family of mold release agents designed for each of the different applications, needs and possible variations in polyurethane molding. They can be supplied as ready-to-use concentrates, diluted or diluted concentrates depending on customer needs.

Concentrol provides specific and efficient solutions for all types of parts, including those whose requirements are increasingly demanding with regard to appearance, surface finish, high productivity, cost, mold cleaning, ease of application and protection of work spaces and the environment.

Innovation in Mold Release Agents For Polyurethane Foams: Electrostatic Mold Release Agents, Advantages and Applications

Concentrol’s electrostatic mold release agents offer an important decrease in consumption of between 30% and 50%, along with a significant reduction in VOCs emitted, thereby improving the work environment. They make it easier to control application through robotic systems (although manual application is possible). However, they require specific equipment and larger, heavier guns, which results in a greater investment in equipment.

Electrostatic mold release agents are currently viable only on a solvent basis, since the water bases have infinite conductivity. Concentrol can convert any solvent-based reference from its catalog to electrostatic. Electrostatic products do not exhibit strong odors or additional toxicity, and allow electrostatic work with solvents known in the industry as class 1, 2 or 3.
