Release Coatings for Cure Wrapping Tape

Home » Products » Hose Manufacturing Products » Release Coatings For Cure Wrapping Tape

McLube Cure Tape Release Coatings are water-based emulsions that form a durable but flexible coating to facilitate tape removal from finished hoses. Our flexible coatings are unaffected by stretch, shrink, and compression and thermally stable to 500°F or higher. McLube products are chemically inert and will not interfere with vulcanization or otherwise chemically react with the hose materials. While our coatings are extremely durable, they can be easily cleaned from tapes and will not buildup on the hose. McLube release coatings are also non-staining for customers manufacturing colored hoses and belts. Effective dilutions of our tape coatings have been achieved, but the ability to dilute our coatings will vary by factory conditions and materials used.

Why choose McLube Release Coatings for your Cure Tapes?

McLube Cure Tape Release Coatings are water-based emulsions that form a durable but flexible coating to facilitate tape removal from finished hoses. Our flexible coatings are unaffected by stretch, shrink, and compression and thermally stable to 500°F or higher. McLube products are chemically inert and will not interfere with vulcanization or otherwise chemically react with the hose materials. While our coatings are extremely durable, they can be easily cleaned from tapes and will not buildup on the hose. McLube release coatings are also non-staining for customers manufacturing colored hoses and belts. Our coatings are VOC-free and easily diluted in-house for additional cost savings.

Supported Processes  and Materials

Vulcanization of high pressure hoses, hydraulic hoses, automotive hoses, silicone hoses, flexible joints, and expansion joints.

 

Nylon and polyester, including standard and soft-edge varieties

Adhesive Strength Factor

Hose manufactures must achieve specific shrink rates and pressure to optimize the adhesive strength factor between the rubber and reinforcing materials of their hose. Our products are designed to endure extreme shrink pressures so as not to adversely affect the optimal adhesive strength factor of your operation.

McLube Protection

Some hose manufacturing materials are microscopically abrasive and release harmful compounds during curing steps. These production factors coupled with normal wear and tear will degrade cure tapes over time, causing poor surface finish and ineffective hose compression. McLube’s durable coatings will protect against mechanical and chemical degradation to extend the lifespan of cure tape.
