Release Systems for New Tire Operations

 

McLube Tire Mold Release Agents

 

McLube has manufactured rubber release agents and anti-tack coatings for over fifty years. We understand the unique challenges rubber compounds present for manufacturers and continually perfect our formulations to make life easier for the rubber industry.

 

McLube Tire Releases allow for multiple releases per application with even the most complex tread patterns and improve rubber flow characteristics for a better finished tire.  Our coatings will effectively wet your mold with a bonded coating that repels factory grime and airborne particles. McLube Coatings will not cause fouling or buildup on the mold surface, reducing the frequency and duration of cleaning steps. We currently offer cost-effective, semi-permanent release agents for bias tire molding that are dilutable and enhance cosmetic appearance. McLube also offers semi-permanent radial tire mold releases for PCR, TBR, OTR and agricultural tires, including product options for segmented molding operations.

 

Rubber compounds are microscopically abrasive and may release harmful compounds during production. Our durable release coatings will protect mold surfaces and tooling from all rubber compounds to extend the lifespan of your costly equipment.

Benefits of our Tire Release Agents

  • Dilutions as high as 15:1
  • Ideal for intricate tread patterns
  • Facilitate air-bleeding and material flow
  • Will not interfere with curing steps, chemically inert
  • Environmentally-conscious and operator friendly

Outside Tire Paints

McLube Outside Tire Paints enhance tire aesthetics, improve material flow characteristics, and facilitate air-bleeding. Our outside tire paints are chemically inert and will not interfere with vulcanization.

  • Compliment tire mold release
  • Ideal for wiping, dipping, or spray application
  • Silicone-free options available

Inside Tire Paints

McLube Inside Tire Paints have a high degree of slip to aid bladder positioning, centering, and air-flow. Our interior paints will facilitate easy release from the bladder and promote greater tire uniformity. We offer water-based, mica-free or filled inside tire paints with varying attributes and capabilities to suit individual needs. Mica-free (unfilled) tire paints provide a smoother surface finish ideal for radial tire operations. McLube Mica-based (filled) Tire Paints are ideal for use on bias tires. Our inside tire paints may be sprayed, wiped, or brushed onto the tire and will not flake post-cure.

McLube Bladder Coatings

McLube Bladder Coatings are easy to apply and offer enhanced release characteristics for all tire materials. Our bladder coatings contain proprietary additives that improve coating flexibility and ensure multiple releases per application with or without the use of interior paints.

  • Offer enhanced surface finish
  • Extended bladder lifespan
  • Silicone-free options available

Release Coatings for Tire Retreading Operations

 

McLube offers cost-effective release agents for tire curing envelopes that form a flexible yet durable coating with superior wetting characteristics. Our Curing Envelope Releases offer the enhanced slip characteristics crucial to operations with intricate tread patterns.
