Silicone Lubricants
and Release Agents
for Food & Beverage

Improve lubricity, slipperiness and
release for food-contact applications.


Increase productivity, extend equipment life and reduce waste with silicone release agents

Silicone release agents from Dow Corning have nonstick properties that enable quicker release of products made in molds or provide lubricity and slipperiness in applications such as conveyor belts, which can result in:

  • Faster throughput
  • Cleaner finished products
  • Less material waste
  • Longer life of the mold or machinery

These agents find use in food-contact manufacturing processes in a variety of applications, from release agents for plastic cutlery and cups to mold release agents for baking.
