I want to formulate a grease for high temperature application and NSF H1 approval for incidental food contact. Can you offer a suitable thickener system?
CLAYTONE-40 is our first recommendation as thickener for high temperature applications and NSF H1 approval. As an ingredient for lubricants and greases it is NSF HX-1 listed.
My mold release agent has difficulties to stick onto hot metal surfaces due to the Leidenfrost effect. How can I improve this?
The primary wax emulsions HORDAMER do not show the Leidenfrost effect. HORDAMER PE02 and HORDAMER PE03 show excellent wetting onto hot metal surfaces. Due to the high melt viscosity they improve the release properties in aluminum die casting.
I am looking for mold release additives with low residue in the mold.
Wax emulsions based on Polypropylen do show a very low build up and residue in the hot mold after several cycles. AQUACER 3500 and AQUACER 597 are typical PP wax emulsions as release agents for this kind of application.
