Why should I use a mold treatment and which one is best for my plant?
Tire mold treatments are applied to the surface of tire molds to help minimize mold fouling, aid rubber flow, assist in the release of the tire from the mold at the end of the cure cycle and to enhance finished tire appearance.
The choice of mold treatment depends on several factors, including the desired application frequency, the main reasons for why the coating is being applied, e.g. to improve release from the mold and/or improve finished tire appearance, and the application equipment, etc. Due to the many variables influencing the affectivity of the mold treatment and the desired outcome the best product can only be determined by a thorough assessment and is best answered in consultation with an experienced release agent supplier.
