Particle Board

Our mold release agents for particle board (PB) create a low COF coating on the mold, minimize process slip issues, and allow easy, clean release from the press plate. They produce a light colored board and cause minimal nasal irritation compared to soap-based alternatives.

Formulated Coatings for Particle Board release

Michem® Release Agent 9004

(Proprietary release blend)

A platen coating that acts as a metal sealer. It imparts a low COF to seal the surface of the platen, produces a cleaner surface, and reduces the frequency of cleanings. It also provides a smoother board surface over time, requiring less sanding.

Michem® Wood Release 2137

(Proprietary release blend.)

A release agent for pMDI based particeboard, oriented strand board, medium density fiberboard and other types of engineered wood. It provides superior release of the wood fiber composite from the press plate, resulting in a lighter color board with reduced build up.

Michem® Wood Release 5040C

(Water based, polysiloxane chemistry release.)

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.

Michem® Wood Release 7010

(Release spray solution)

For use with formaldehyde-based resins, this product increases process efficiency by improving mat integrity and limiting carbon buildup on the platen and belt surfaces.
