Meet the challenges of molding your friction components with high performance release agents.

As a maker of friction products, you face a multitude of unique challenges. Manufacturing components — including disc brake pads, brake linings, drum brake shoes and clutch discs — for braking and power transmissions for transportation and other machinery applications is a difficult process full of variables that can negatively impact your results. An effective and highly advanced mold release agent designed to address your specific needs can meet the high demands of your operation while also:
Lowering your scrap rate
