CINCINNATI, OH (October 8, 2015) – Michelman will feature a selection of its popular composite wood panel mold release agents, as well as a modular duplex blending and application system at the 2015 EWTA Info Fair Supplier Exhibition. Michelman will be exhibiting in Booth 8 at the event which is being held October 17-19, 2015, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
Michelman’s Michem® Wood Release brand mold release agents are used by manufacturers of pMDI as well as conventional resin-based composite wood panels. Michem Wood Release 7010 is a solution for urea-formaldehyde, phenol-formaldehyde and melamine-formaldehyde resin based composite wood products including medium density fiberboard (MDF), oriented strand board (OSB), particle board (PB), laminated strand lumber (LSL), and laminated strand board (LSB). Use of Michem Wood Release 7010 increases process efficiency by improving mat integrity and limiting carbon build-up on the platen and belt surfaces.
Michelman will also spotlight two unique solutions that are applied directly to belts and platen, keeping them clean and productive. Michem Wood Release 3001A is a belt coating that continuously seals the surface of the steel belt, eliminating buildup “bronzing” over time. This conditioning effect provides a cleaner, smoother surface, reduces the frequency of belt cleaning, and allows even heat distribution for cleaning. Michem Wood Release 9004 is 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.
New at this year’s show will be Michelman’s MWR-100, a modular duplex blending system that precisely dilutes and applies Michelman’s release agents. Diluting allows a constant flow rate to the spray bar insuring a consistent, uninterrupted spray pattern. The system is available in a stacked or single skid configuration, with different skid flow rates available.
