Chem-Trend remains steadfast in its commitment to sustainability within the rubber industry. Our entire product line is now free of perfluorochemicals. This long-term initiative highlights our leadership in the sector, empowering manufacturers like you to elevate performance while meeting your sustainability goals responsibly. Discover more in the video about what our rubber industry technology leader, Dr. Keith Korthals, has to say about Chem-Trend’s efforts in sustainability.
Chem-Trend is a global leader in providing release agents and related molding process aids for use in a wide range of rubber molding applications. With decades of proven experience in helping the world’s top rubber manufacturers, we have helped provide greater efficiency, higher-quality products, lower downtime, reduced scrap rates, and more predictability, as well as greater leaps in innovation. We serve rubber manufacturers in a number of ways:
Semi-permanent release agents are state-of-the-art and provide the rubber molding industry with an alternative to the traditional “shop-spray” or high-volume, apply-every-cure release agent. Chem-Trend has been developing these types of products for the rubber industry for nearly four decades now, and we provide them in either solvent- or water-based varieties. Our Mono-Coat® mold protectants and primers further enhance rubber and rotational molding operations by extending mold life and improving the operational efficiency of molds. Mono-Coat® anti-static agents and flange releases help improve part quality and molding efficiency in rotational molding operations.MORE
In situations when semi-permanent release agents don’t work, we offer conventional mold release products. In fact, we continue to focus a significant amount of energy on the development of new products applicable to this specific section of the rubber industry. These conventional needs include situations with molds featuring complicated cavities, and those that may require unacceptable over-application of the product to the areas that are easy to reach.MORE
Molds often represent a significant investment in molding operations. These tools are a key element in the operation, as they are directly related to efficiency, scrap rates, part quality, downtime, and operational costs. Keeping the molds clean and productive is of critical concern to a profitable operation. Chem-Trend understands the importance of maintaining molds in good working condition and has developed a line of high-quality mold protectants.MORE
Chem-Trend® mandrel lubricants are designed to provide lubrication for formed hoses made on rigid steel or aluminum mandrels, and to create a film that offers a slippery surface for straight but flexible hoses that are made on long-length nylon or rubber mandrels.MORE
