CINCINNATI, OH (December 16, 2015) – Michem® Release Agent 9004 is an innovative new platen coating for use on laminated strand board, oriented strand board, medium density fiberboard and particle board presses. The easy-to-use solution is spray, roll or wipe applied directly to the press platen prior to processing. When applied, Michem Release Agent 9004 acts as a metal sealer. It imparts a low COF coating sealing the surface of the platen, producing a cleaner surface which reduces the frequency between cleanings. It also provides a smoother board surface over time, requiring less sanding.
Michem Release Agent 9004 is one of a family of Michem Release Agents manufactured by Michelman. The family of products are used to prevent processed materials from adhering to a substrate surface. The agents are applied to the mold or forming surface, and provide easy release of the part with defect free performance.
