Biocompatible release agent for the manufacture of medical silicon products

  • Certification for use in pharmaceutical and medical industry
  • Good temperature and abrasion resistance
  • Chem-Trend at the IRC 2015

Specifically for the manufacture of silicone rubber products for medical applications, the company Chem-Trend has developed a new, biocompatible release agent. Mono-Coat 1989W is especially well suited for the molding of products such as molded medical tubes, protective caps and closures. The semi-permanent, water based release agent is certified in accordance with the USP Class VI panel of tests, and therefore suited for use in the medical rubber molding industry.

Good temperature and abrasion resistance

The new release agent ensures easy release of the finished products from the mold and facilitates the manufacture of clean parts. It features very good temperature and abrasion resistance, and offers multiple releases with little to no transfer to the molded part. In biological compatibility tests conducted by the independent medical research organisation NAMSA, the material was found to meet the requirements of the USP Class VI panel of tests.

The company will showcase Mono-Coat 1989W and other products at the upcoming International Rubber Conference (IRC) in Nuremberg, Germany.
