Usage

This release agent is used during the manufacture of pMDI based particleboard, oriented strand board, medium density fiberboard and other types of engineered wood. It provides a low coefficient of friction coating creating release of the wood fiber from the press plate resulting in a lighter color board with reduced build up. It provides ‘memory’ ensuring worry free release even if you experience a spray application failure.
