Additives for Lubricants and the Foundry Industry: Die Casting



Mold release agents play an important role in high pressure die casting (primarily aluminum). At high die temperatures, they must be able to guarantee excellent wetting and perfect film formation as well as good adhesion to the die surface. They protect the die surface, and they enable short cycle times and high productivity.

BYK offers wax additives (primary polyethylene dispersions, modified polypropylene emulsions) and silicone emulsions to formulate high-quality mold release agents.
