Michelman, a global developer and manufacturer of water-based mold release agents and processing aids for use by composite wood manufacturers, will introduce an extensive line of proven industry solutions to the China market at WoodMac China 2015.
Over twelve years ago, Michelman began developing a family of environmentally friendly solutions specifically formulated to help manufacturers efficiently and cleanly process difficult to handle, formaldehyde free laminated strand board, medium density fiberboard, oriented strand board and particle board. Michelman will be showcasing its capabilities in Booth #1X12, Hall E1 at WoodMac 2015, being held from March 11-14, 2015 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
Michelman will feature a number of specific solutions including Michem® Wood Release 1136 that is sprayed over the fiber mat, board caul or press plate, producing a coating with a low coefficient of friction that allows easy release of the wood fiber from the press plate. It also produces a lighter color board with reduced buildup, and virtually eliminates process slip issues.
A new line of belt and platen coatings will also be featured, including Michem Wood Release 3002, a non-silicon, continuous belt conditioner. It seals the surface of the belt, improving cleanliness, while extending the frequency between required cleanings. It also produces a smoother board surface with more consistent quality.
In addition to a complete line of mold release agents and processing aids, Michelman designs and manufactures trial spray equipment and has developed the expertise required to help customers process pMDI and resin-based wood panels efficiently and cost effectively.
