Improve release and
Silicone release agents are used in die cast release, mold
release, tire release, plastic release, and concrete
release solutions, among other solutions. Dow Corning silicone release
technology enables quicker release of products made in molds, such as tires and
food containers, or provides lubricity and slipperiness in applications using
rollers, such as newspaper presses and conveyor belts, all resulting in:
Cleaner finished products
Less material waste
Longer life of the mold or machinery
Capitalize on the unique
properties of silicone release agents
Lower surface tension than most polymers
Higher heat stability than organic alternatives
Superior oxidation resistance characteristics
Lower use rates than organics

industrial release applications
Dow Corning brings you decades of silicone release technology expertise
and products that have demonstrated their versatility, reliability, safety and
efficiency in a broad range of industrial applications, including:
release – Silicone emulsions and fluids for use in the molding,
casting, or extrusion of aluminum or aluminum alloy parts are designed for
release of articles that require post-finishing and are also excellent for
release of parts to be coated, painted, bonded, or plated.
Mold release –
Durable silicone fluids and emulsions for use in a wide range of mold release
agent formulations and mold release applications including the fabrication of
plastics, adhesives, elastomeric products, and automotive parts.
Tire release –
Easy-to-use water-dilutable silicone release agents for use in tire production
as bladder lubricants or inside tire sprays.
release – Highly efficient and semi-permanent fluids and emulsions for the
release of polyurethane and polyester parts, such as shoe soles; automotive
parts, including bumpers, crash-pads and dashboards; and microcellular
automotive parts and furniture (integral skin).
– Silicone emulsion for the release of concrete paver blocks and
other concrete parts from rubber molds; reduces mold-removal damage and
concrete waste without affecting the ability of the finished parts to be
painted or coated.
