Micro Surface Corporation's mold release coatings encapsulate the surface of contact during injection, blow, and extrusion molding or during the application of adhesives to prevent contact between the tooling and material being used to improve release performance and yields.

What mold release coating is best for my application?

Release Coating: Best Used For:
Nicklon Plus (Nickel Teflon® Plus)
Improves performance of Rubber and Thermo Plastic molds via increased resin flow of 4-8%, extends mold life though its high corrosion resistant characteristics, and provides superior release for no-draft or difficult-to-eject parts and eliminates the need for mold release sprays.
  • Rubber Molds
  • Thermo Plastic Molds
  • Injection Molds
  • Industrial Sealing
Tungsten Disulfide (WS2)
A coating originally developed by NASA that provides excellent release for all mold components that contact resins and improves their flow 3 - 9%. It does not transfer to finished parts and provides longer lasting release than alternitives such as mold spray.
  • Injection Molds
  • All Mold Components that contact resin
  • Ball & Roller Bearings
Teflon®
A versitile coating with non-stick properties that provides excellent release for molds & food processing.
  • Food FDA Release
  • Rubber Molds
  • Mold Release

Micro Surface applies coatings to solve the release problems of a number of industries such as:

Food Release Coatings
Food release coatings are FDA compliant and resistant to normal industry wash downs allowing them to last longer. Some examples are calendar rolls for cookies, snack food items, cereals, cheese, meat products, and yogurt products.
Plastic Resin and Rubber Compound Release Coatings
The release coatings applied by Micro Surface improve resin flow 3 - 9% to improve productivity and extend mold life with corrosion protection.
Industrial Sealing Release Coatings
Release coatings for sealing are fortified PTFE or FEP Teflon with ceramic or metallic fillers. These coatings have excellent heat transfer and maintain profile geometry for zipper and resealing profiles. The reinforced coatings provide excellent wear life and service up to 450F - 500F continuous cycling.
Adhesive Release Coatings
Release coatings for adhesives are designed to provide excellent release from rubber, epoxy, and urethane materials.
