Industrial Release Agents

Release products faster

Release agents can improve your manufacturing by speeding up die-cast, rubber, plastic and concrete release. Dow’s release technology helps you achieve:

  • Quicker release of products made in molds, such as tires and food containers
  • Lubricity and slipperiness in applications using rollers, such as conveyor belts and newspaper presses

Polyalkylene glycol (PAG)

PAGs are used as mold release agents for rubber and plastic applications because they:

  • Don’t dissolve or react with the molded product
  • Exhibit low vapor pressure
  • Are easy to apply and remove
  • Leave no deposit or residue on the mold
  • Offer some lubricating action

Polyethylene glycol (PEG)

PEGs are used widely as mold release agents and lubricants for fabricating natural and synthetic rubber. They are useful to the rubber industry because they:

  • Are water-soluble and easy to apply and remove
  • Are nonvolatile, with minimal losses in use
  • Have very low ash content for no residue buildup in molds
  • Are chemically inactive

Silicone emulsions, fluids and resins

Silicone materials are used as release agents for molding, extruding and fabricating rubber and plastic parts and in die-casting metals. Silicones offer:

  • Thermal stability, including high-temperature processes above 150°C
  • Oxidation resistance
  • Low use rates
  • Excellent spreading on many substrates, including metal mold surfaces
