Overcoming Gas Build-up in Plastic Injection Molding

Overcoming Gas Build-up in Plastic Injection Molding

Nanoplas’s Advanced Dry Film Mold Release Solutions

Does this sound familiar? You’re a technician in a plastic injection molding facility, where constantly spraying mold release feels like an endless cycle. It’s like guzzling milk to cool down at a sweltering county fair in August – you’re trying to find relief, but it’s ineffective and never quite satisfying. Each time your molded products emerge with gas marks and imperfections, it not only leads to an increase in scrap but also disrupts your workflow, demanding repeated reworks, machine cleanings, and an excessive consumption of mold-release agents.

This scenario underscores the inefficiency and quality issues of traditional mold release methods. Thankfully, there is a solution – Tuff-Kote™ and Dri-Kote™ dry film mold release products from Nanoplas. Like a tall glass of lemonade on a hot day quenches your thirst, these mold releases relieve the pains associated with the gas build-up of traditional mold-release products. Here’s what you need to know.

Advantages of Dry Film Mold Release Technology: Enhancing Efficiency and Quality in Manufacturing

Dry film mold release technology, utilizing a small concentration of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), marks a significant upgrade from traditional wet mold releases. PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and it can be found used in cookware and in many industrial applications. The unique properties of PTFE, known for its exceptional low friction and non-stick nature, enhance this technology. When combined with other proprietary ingredients, PTFE contributes to increased durability, reduced friction, and superior performance over competitors. This leads to less residue and build-up, reducing cleaning downtime and improving part quality. This technology follows the “less equals more” principle, enabling more efficient production with less product usage and minimal interruptions.
