IMS Co. of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, introduced an environmentally friendly mold release and two new temperature-control modules.
Speed Mist mold releases are an alternative to formulas that contain flammable or chemically aggressive ingredients, or those banned by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Speed Mist products do not contain trichloroethylene, dimethyl ether or other flammable gases. They evaporate quickly, with no unpleasant odors, IMS said.
IMS sells several different types of the mold release: a version containing silicone that forms a long-lasting film on the mold, a Blue Label Silicone spray that forms a thin, tough film on even highly polished surfaces, and a paintable release for parts that will be painted, plated, printed or stamped.
The closed-loop, 15-amp temperature-control modules are UATC-20, ideal for hot runners, and S20-D3C, which features a mechanical set point and simple, reliable operation, according to IMS.
