Learn about the advantages of graphite-based lubricants, release agents and suspensions

Graphite release agents and lubricants are designed to be applied in metal molds where different materials are cast to create various parts. This results in alloys with homogeneous surfaces, high precision edges and improved mechanical properties. It prevents the molded product from sticking to the structure.

The mold release agent is designed to be applied in metal molds where different materials are melted to create various parts. This results in alloys with homogeneous surfaces, high precision edges and improved mechanical properties. It prevents the molded product from sticking to the structure.

What is a release agent and what does release mean?

The finition of release agent irelated to the casting in molds or metals that have been melted, since it allows to obtain parts with certain characteristics or shapes. Demolding refers to the action of removing the part from the mold, with great care, so that it maintains the highest quality and shape.

For this reason, it has a high cost, however, it is worth it, since it allows you to produce identical parts in a massive way. It also gives you the following characteristics in the parts such as: uniform shapes; clean and smooth surfaces; gives you a piece of great consistency.

The aphite release agent ispecially made to be used in metallic molds, since the graphite covers the metallic structure so that it has the best performance and avoids wear.

The graphite lubricant, is a key part, in order to resist high temperatures within the mold release process. Also the aphite suspension, they are heterogeneous mixtures formed by a solid that is powdered or also in small non-soluble particles that are separated. The suspension, can be used based on water, oil and alcohol.

And some of its advantages are: resistance to water; avoids oxidation; decreases wear; works without problems in high temperatures, etc.

Types of release agents

These are the most common ones, which are used in different industries and which require different types of graphite, to maximize their results.

  1. wdered mold release agents, one that adheres to the mold to work properly. It is used in the stamping process, which is very common in construction.
  2. ld release film iliquid and its function is to release the piece correctly and uniformly. You simply have to let the liquid dry so that the part can be disassembled and the part comes out complete.
  3. dustrial release agent ia resource widely used in the food industry, industrial production, technology, among many others. Since it allows you to create an anti-adherent layer that is placed between the mold and the created piece; with the objective of not interfering in the qualities of the piece.
  4. uminum mold release agents, so known as alumum casting mold release agentsnd is used with high temperatures, since it provides a better performance in the process, optimizing time and resources.
  5. The purpose of ld release agents for metal molds ito prevent the concrete from sticking to the mold, resulting in parts with the best finishes.

Therefore, it is important to mention that the rformance of the release agents based on the fact that it is easy to apply; it increases productivity; it is easy to clean, among many other things.

In addition, bricants for iron or lubricating film a used, which must have as main property to lubricate the structure, to avoid easy wear, to separate the elements from the surface, so that they can be easily cleaned, among other things.

In addition, bricants for iron or lubricating film a used, which must have as main property to lubricate the structure, not to wear easily, to separate the elements from the surface, so that the movement does not create structures with any defect, etc.

Conclusions

To conclude, as we have seen, there are many types of release agents, which have specific structures and objectives. However, no matter which one you use, it will give you a high quality finish, always increase productivity and optimize resources.
