Mandrel Release Product Target Characteristics

Excellent Loading & Releasing Superior lubricity for loading and releasing hose from complex mandrels.
Minimal Build-Up Excellent release characteristics that minimizing residue on mandrels and on the inside diameter of finished hoses.
Hose Dimension Integrity Prevent defects such as pitting, pin-holes, blooming or swelling of the inside diameter.
Silicone, Fluorine, and Solvent free Products do not contain any materials that will affect the post production testing performance of critical hose systems for customers who have component specific demands for mandrel release.
Washing Characteristics Excellent washing and anti-foaming characteristics, which will breakdown easily and safely in normal drainage systems.
Temperature Stability Stable at high temperatures for the most demanding hose production situations

Pan Cure Release Characteristics for Hose and Tube

  • Excellent anti-tack and anti-blocking characteristics for cured and uncured hoses.
  • All water-based pan cure products can be produced free of silicone, solvents, fluorocarbons, waxes, and stearates.
  • Anti-tack and anti-block products will not build-up on hose surfaces or leave residue in the curing pans.
  • Easily washed off and will degrade safely in normal drainage systems.
  • Will not interfere with ink coding or painting.
