Water-based anti-stick coatings must uniformly wet rubber material at a chosen concentration within the batch-off time of that specific rubber process. McLube coatings are tailor-made to individual plant and material specifications to optimize customer operations. We offer anti-tack solutions and liquid emulsions that are cleaner than powders and more environmentally-conscious than dispersions containing heavy metals like zinc. Explore below to learn more about McLube Services and Solutions for rubber manufacturing.
Synthetic rubbers are inherently less tacky than natural rubbers. Rubber manufacturers working with synthetic rubbers will add “tackifiers” to their materials to improve adhesion and strength during curing steps. McLube products are compatible with synthetic rubber tackifiers and will not interfere with finishing steps while still providing anti-tack properties.
Uncured rubber is inherently soft and tacky. While these attributes are a nuisance to the rubber industry, the chemical structures that cause “stickiness” make curing steps like vulcanization possible. McLube anti-tack coatings will prevent uncured rubber slabs from adhering to one another without chemically altering the uncured rubber or interfering with finishing steps.
