Release Molded Parts Easily
Easy, clean release from the mold is critical to high part quality, high
productivity and scrap avoidance. It also expands design freedom: better mold
release enables complex, thin parts with long flow lines.
Dow Corning's advanced silicone additives migrate to the surface during
injection molding, forming a smooth interface that minimizes attraction between
the material and the tool. Thanks to low surface tension, our silicones promote
a clean release. They also improve flow performance. With this
technology, even the most intricate or thinnest parts can be de-molded with
their surface finishes and fine details intact.
Our high-performance additive solutions offer advantages over spray-on mold
release agents, which are time-consuming to apply, and internal waxes, which
can bloom on the part's surface, causing tackiness. Compared to PTFE, Dow
Corning additives deliver high performance at much lower loadings (2% to
