Chem-Trend introduces highly effective Lusin® anti-corrosion protectant for thermoplastic molding applications
Chem-Trend, a global leader in the development and production of high-performance purging compounds, release agents and other ancillary molding products, today announced the addition of Lusin® Protect G 31 F to its broad line-up of high performance mold maintenance products for the thermoplastics processing industry. Lusin® Protect G 31 F is an anti- corrosion protectant developed specifically for use in the packaging industry and is applicable for food grade applications where incidental food contact is possible.
The new product is a dry film which provides significant benefit over typical oil-based rust inhibitors. The dry film does not creep between mold plates, slides and core adjustments and can be easily removed from the mold cavity by the simple process of part molding, allowing for time and labor savings. Additionally, unlike typical oil-based rust-inhibitors the new product does not produce “oil marks” on transparent and optical parts.
Lusin® Protect G 31 F is NSF registered and conforms to H1 category code and therefore complies with FDA 21 CFR §178.357. The newly developed anti-corrosion protectant, which works in an innovative way to prevent rust on metal parts over both the short and long-term, can also be used as a lubricating agent, providing additional benefits to the end-user.
