Die Lubes & Mold Releases

Mold release agents and sprays are designed specifically for use with all types of rubber, plastic, composites, wood fiber composites/panel pressing, concrete, stone veneers and polyurethane parts to allow easy and clean release. A wide variety of wax types are used in die lubricants and mold releases for plastics, metals and concrete, where high temperature lubricity is required.

Emulsion 39.5 - 40.5 Nonionic                    

Michem® Emulsion 91735

(Nonionic polypropylene emulsion)

A sizing polymer for fiberglass and other fibers used to reinforce polypropylene. It can also be used in paint & varnish and polish applications to impart durability, mar, slip and block resistance.

Emulsion 34.0 - 36.0 Anionic / Nonionic                    

Michem® Emulsion 93935

(Nonionic polyethylene emulsion)

A phenol and formaldehyde free wax emulsion used in floor polish formulations where it imparts black heel resistance, toughness and buffability and mar and scuff resistance. It is also useful in paint and varnish formulations to impart durability, block, mar and scratch resistance.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Nonionic                  

Michem® Emulsion 94340

(Nonionic polypropylene emulsion)

A phenol free additive best used in floor polish and overprint varnish formulations when a high degree of slip resistance is needed. It also provides durability and scratch resistance to wood applications.

Emulsion 39.5 - 40.5 Anionic / Nonionic            

Michem® Emulsion 98040M1

(Nonionic Fischer Tropsch wax emulsion)

Used to provide superior slip, abrasion resistance and antiblock properties in paint, varnish, and wood applications.

Emulsion 38.0 - 42.0 Nonionic              

Michem® Lube 124

(Anionic microcrystalline wax emulsion)

Provides release and acts as a detackifier for industrial moding applications. It is used successfully in latex glove formulations and also offers slip resistance for adhesives and sealants.

Emulsion 41.0 - 43.0 Anionic                    

Michem® Lube 190

(Anionic polyethylene wax emulsion)

Provides mar, rub, block and scratch resistance as well as improved water resistance in coatings and graphic arts formulations.

Emulsion 34.5 - 35.5 Anionic                  

Michem® Prime 4983R

(Ethylene acrylic acid dispersion)

Provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates, and enhances the water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives. Can serve as a tie coat or primer for extrusion coatings, a foil laminate, a specialty paper coating, a paper sizing agent, a heat sealable coating, nonwoven binder and can also be used as a thermally active binder in thermal transfer release coatings.

Specialty Dispersion 24.2 - 25.4 Ammoniated dispersion            

Michem® Prime 6121

(Ethylene Acrylic Acid dispersion)

Provides outstanding adhesion to both metallic and cellulosic substrates, aids corrosion protection, and enhances the water, grease, oil and solvent resistance of coatings and adhesives. It can serve as a tie coat or primer for extrusion coatings, a foil laminate, a specialty paper coating, a paper sizing agent, a heat sealable coating or a nonwoven binder.

Specialty Dispersion 20.0 - 22.0 Ammoniated / alkali dispersion                    

Mold Release 225SS

(Solvent based, synthethic wax emulsion)

Solvent based mold release agent suitable for use with ceramics.

Solvent Dispersion 1.5 - 2.5                    
Formulated Coatings for Die Lubes & Mold Releases mold release

Michem® Release Agent 4002

(Proprietary release blend)

A water based, environmentally friendly mold release for the manufacture of molded friction composite materials such as shoes, pads and disks. Michem® Release Agent 4002 is designed for release of both metallic and ceramic part formulations with both manual and automated application systems. Residual release agent on the friction material will not interfere with bonding of the composite to the metal back plate. Michem® Release Agent 4002 provides worry-free release and surface quality.

Michem® Release Agent 4003

(Proprietary release blend)

A water based, environmentally friendly mold release for the manufacture of large, molded friction composite materials such as Heavy duty truck shoes, pads and disks. Michem® Release Agent 4003 is designed for release of both metallic and ceramic part formulations with both manual and automated application systems. Residual release agent on the friction material will not interfere with bonding of the composite to the metal back plate. Michem® Release Agent 4003 provides worry free release and surface quality.
