A New Delhi, India, company claims it has developed a nano-technology based mold release that can last as long as three hundred thousand cycles.
Luxor Nanotechnology says the new release forms a nano-scale barrier on the mold surface and its low coefficient of friction allows elimination of sprays and other release agents in injection and blow molding, rubber molding and similar applications. Luxor says the release is compatible with all types of steel.
Luxor reports the new release is non-toxic, water-based and able to withstand high temperatures.
A molder would need to perform several steps to apply the release, Luxor instructs. They include rigorous mold cleaning and a two to three hour drying time at room temperature after the release is applied.
