IncroMold™ range of mold release additives have been designed to improve your injection molding process by reducing friction, allowing more efficient processing and improving the quality of the molded parts.
Once added into the process, IncroMold™ additives rapidly migrates to the surface of the polymer as it cools. This reduces the adhesion between the part and the mold, making it easier to release it from the molding tool.
Besides consistent mold release, key benefits include:
- Reduced cycle times due to improved polymer flow leading to easier mold filling and allowing injection at lower temperatures and speeds. This reduces the cooling time in the mold.
- Reduction in the number of rejected parts (post-industrial waste) as well as less downtime due to improved mold release properties, leading to more efficient production.
- Increasing the lifetime of machinery by reducing wear and tear through improving polymer flow in the production process.
- Post-molding benefits such as improved application and release torque, improved de-nesting and reduction in assembly force.
Discover IncroMold™ products
An internal molding release additive used to improve cycle time, productivity and surface finish in a variety of polymers, suitable for use at high temperatures (>200°C). IncroMold™ K can be dispersed evenly through the polymer in the melt phase or dosed via a masterbatch.
IncroMold™ F is an internal molding release additive used to improve cycle time and productivity in polyolefins, suitable for use up to temperatures of 230°C depending on residence time in the processing equipment. IncroMold™ F can be dispersed evenly through the polymer in the melt phase.
