Mold Release Agents
Our silicone release agents serve as process aids for molding thermoplastics and synthetic rubbers. For plastic film processing and rubber parts, our silicone slip or antiblocking agents can provide critical properties that prevent the films and rubber parts from sticking to themselves and enable easy mold release. These release and slip agents support the production of numerous products, including thermoplastic parts, food packages, rubber parts, die-cast aluminum and magnesium parts, tires, and O-rings.
Complete mold coverage is essential for good release, especially for complex molds. Durability is also important, as more durable release agents help to minimize reapplication, cutting both material costs and downtime between part molds. Because low-viscosity silicones offer better coverage and high-viscosity silicones offer better durability, we work with our customers to find the right balance to streamline their molding operations.

XF42-334 release agent is typically emulsified - its emulsion is one component of a formulation that comprises up to 10 different ingredients - when utilized as a release agent. Through selection of the molecular weight of the polymer, the overall molecular architecture and the degree of its substitution with organic groups, Momentive developed XF42-334 release agent with the ability to be easily processed into a high-quality emulsion.
When diluted according to defined procedures, XF42-334 release agent normally remains stable even over long periods of time. Once applied onto the die-casting mold, the diluted emulsion forms a film that acts as a release agent for the molten aluminum. By helping produce intricate articles that can be quickly painted over, this release agent can enable manufacturers to improve operational productivity.
Potential applications of XF42-334 release agent include:
- Release agent for aluminum die casting
- Component of lubricating formulations
- Leveling agent for paints and coatings
- Foam control agent for paints and coatings
