Mandrel release agents are synthetic liquid lubricants, which drastically reduce the friction between an uncured hose and the mandrel and remain effective until the cured hose has been removed from the hot mandrel. By reducing both the effort required to push the uncured hose onto the mandrel and pull the cured hose off the mandrel, our Struktol release agents simplify the production process, and in some extreme cases make the process viable. Additionally, many of our mandrel release agents are biodegradable.
Application of Mandrel Release Agents
All Struktol MR products (except gel types) can be applied by simply dipping the uncured hoses and brushing or spraying the material onto the mandrel.
LIQUID MANDREL RELEASE AGENTS
Liquid mandrel release agents are usually utilised in classical dipping process, means the unvulcanised, ready cut rubber hose is dipped into the release agent product and put onto the mandrel surface. It is also possible to apply such release agent sby using brush or spraying equipment.
