Mold Release Agents in Action: Rubber Sealing Systems

Rubber sealing systems come in many forms, including o-rings, gaskets, membranes, covers, etc.  They are essential in the role of preventing fluid leakage between two mating surfaces in both static and dynamic sealing applications.  These seals serve in a diverse list of industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction equipment, and medical applications.

Rubber seals make use of a much broader array of elastomers than is used in other operations such as anti-vibration component molding.  This is a result of the sealing systems having to work in a very wide range of operating conditions and applications.  The elastomers used in some of these very critical applications and extreme conditions can be very expensive.  This gives molders significant reason to avoid any waste or scrap in their molding operations.  The choice of release agent can be of significant importance in these applications and our DiamondKote product line is the right place to start.

Our experience and knowledge in this segment allow us to work closely with our customers to demonstrate the value of using our DiamondKote release agents to achieve your goals.  Whatever your specific application might be we have a product that fits the need.

Mold Release Agents in Action: Automotive Anti-Vibration Component Molding

Rubber molded anti-vibration components play a crucial role in the automotive industry. By cutting down on vibration they improve ride quality and protect critical components from unnecessary wear. These components can include bushings, engine mounts, fluid mounts and more.

In order to function properly in the vehicle the components themselves have to be manufactured to the highest quality. Using the proper mold release agent is an essential part of achieving this quality. Our line of DiamondKote release agents provide the molder with the critical release ease needed in this application.  In addition DiamondKote offers the molder superior release longevity, mold cleanliness, and limited transfer to the part which is important in achieving the necessary bond strength of the elastomer to the insert.  All of these features result in improved efficiencies for the molder, and this results in greater production, less scrap, and less downtime for spraying and mold cleaning.

Whatever your specific application, there is a DiamondKote product available to help you achieve the results you need in your molding operation.

Over Two Decades of Creating Innovative Industrial Solutions

Franklynn Industries was established in 1991, and for over two decades we have focused on how to leave our unique mark on the mold release industry. Everything that we do can be traced back to a desire to innovate and best help our customers.

That is why we were one of the very first companies to manufacture a water-based mold release agent. At the time, solvent-based products dominated the market but we knew that we could bring something different to the table. Our water-based DiamondKote products prove again and again that our talented engineers and experts know how to make a superior product.

Now we offer a complete line of mold release agents that can be used in a wide variety of industries and applications.  Whether you are molding rubber, polyurethane, or plastics, our global system of distributors can deliver you the perfect solution.

Now known as ITW Fluids NA we have even more resources and expertise at our disposal and look forward to continuing to produce the most innovative products and solutions available in the industry.  Stay tuned to this blog for all of the most recent Franklynn developments at ITW Fluids NA.
