Polyurethane Mold Release Agents

Release Agents for Polyurethane

Mavcoat® Mold Release Coatings for Polyurethane provide highly effective release properties for all cast elastomers, rigid and flexible foams. The coatings adhere to all mold surfaces such as, aluminum, steel, urethane, epoxy, and fiberglass. They are chemically engineered to create a heat-stable, non-carbonizing film that uniformly wets the mold surface to provide long manufacturing runs without attacking the urethane skin. 

There is a Mavcoat® Mold Release Coating for all types of Polyurethane:

  • Cast Elastomers
  • Rigid Foam
  • Flexible Foam
  • Integral Skin Foam
  • High Resiliency
  • Visco-Elastic Foam
  • Spray skin

Polyurethane Mold Release Applications

Some current customer applications include the molding of automotive bushings, air filters, skate wheels, foam seats and dashboards, shoe soles, car body styling kits, cable guards, drive belts, oil seals, form liners, high load wheels, and diaphragms just to name a few. 

Benefits of Polyurethane Mold Release Agents

Mavcoat®polyurethane release coatings benefit the customer by providing

  • Superior part release
  • Reduced build up
  • Cleaner molds
  • Excellent surface cosmetics
  • Less downtime between molds
  • Water-based options available
  • Little/No VOC emissions
  • High gloss or shiny finishes available

Also, there are non-silicone Mavcoat® releases that will not transfer when paint or adhesives must be applied during post-molding operations. The sum of these performance characteristics make Mavcoat® the best choice for your polyurethane.

We offer the Mavcoat®  GHS release agent for Polyurethane molds that is the strongest release coating in the Mavcoat® product line designed for processes that require a release coating to withstand the most aggressive elastomer chemistry. It does not contain solvents, is non-flammable, odorless, and produces multiple releases. GHS is equivalent to and replaces Wacker Release Agent E155. Compared to Wacker E-155, Mavcoat GHS includes: 

  • Higher active resin content that improve release characteristics 
  • Yields glossier surface on finished parts 
  • Options purchased in 5-gallon pails 
  • Options to be sold directly to customers 
  • Same day shipping 
  • Immediate technical support
