Polymers fall into two distinct groups, thermosetting plastics and thermoplastics.
Key advantages of thermosetting plastics include high dimensional stability; low shrinkage: excellent resistance to corrosion, creep, and heat; and design flexibility.
Benefits are said to include multiple releases between applications, reduced scrap rate, low buildup and easy release for most elastomers and thermosetting plastics such as urethanes and phenolics.
Q-Cel hollow microspheres are fine, inorganic spherical particles developed as a low-density filler/extender for thermosetting plastics. These microspheres can be used in polyurethanes, plastisols, polyester casting, spray-up, SMC and BMC compositions, and syntactic foams.
Benefits of RR-1381 WB are said to include multiple releases between applications, reduced scrap rate, low buildup and easy release for most elastomers and thermosetting plastics such as urethanes and phenolics, according to the company.
When applied to a clean, warm mold (>160[degrees]F), RR 280 WB will give a thin, highly durable, heat-stable release film capable of releasing a wide cross section of elastomers and thermosetting plastics, according to the manufacturer.
When applied to a clean, warm mold (>160[degrees]F), RR 280 WB is said to give a thin, highly durable, heat stable release film capable of releasing a wide cross-section of elastomers and thermosetting plastics. It is available in 1, 5, 55 and 275 gallon containers.
Q-Cel (registered) hollow microspheres are fine, inorganic spherical particles developed as a low-density filler/extender for thermosetting plastics. These microspheres can be used in polyurethanes, plastisols, polyester casting, spray-up, SMC and BMC compositions, and syntactic foams.
It is said to easily release silicone rubber, as well as other polymers and thermosetting plastics. RC-7 Hot contains no ODCs and has a reduced VOC content.
