Increased process efficiency and reduced environmental impact

March, 05 2012

Chem-Trend at the UTECH Europe 2012 in Maastricht, The Netherlands

Maisach, 5 March 2012 – At the UTECH Europe 2012 on 17-19 April in Maastricht, Chem-Trend will present its innovative solutions for efficient polyurethane moulding at stand 1700. Chem-Trend’s focus will be on the introduction of environmentally sound release agents and ancillary moulding products.

Mould release agents have a significant impact on the efficiency of the moulding process as well as on the quality of the moulded parts. Available as water-based or solvent-based formulations, Chem-Trends release agents offer excellent part release and allow for optimal gloss level. The achieved surface finish quality is ideal for secondary operations, such as gluing and painting. Chem-Trends low VOC formulations provide for a cleaner, safer work environment and reduced environmental impact.

In addition to its high-quality release agents, Chem-Trend offers a comprehensive portfolio of ancillary moulding products for the processing of polyurethane, from mould cleaners and mould preparation pastes to anti-squeak products and flushing solvents. Chem-Trends products help reduce downtimes, improve the quality of the moulded parts, and minimise scrap rates. They can be used in a variety of applications and processes, including:

  • High resiliency foam
  • Visco-elastic foam
  • Back foaming and acoustical foaming
  • Integral skin and spray skin
  • Shoe soles
  • Rigid foam
  • RIM and RRIM SRIM reaction injection moulded
  • Iso binders
  • Cast elastomers

Chem-Trend’s products are developed in close cooperation with customers and research institutions. At the UTECH Europe 2012 Chem-Trend’s experts will be available to answer individual questions on Chem-Trend’s products and services.
