Michelman Introduces Two New Solutions for Composite Wood Manufacturers

Michelman has introduced two new additions to its line of Michem® Wood Release mold release agents and processing aids for manufacturers of medium density fiberboard, oriented strand board, particle board and laminated strand board.

Michem Wood Release 1136 is a water dilutable mold release agent for pMDI based board that is sprayed over the fiber mat, board caul or press plate. It produces 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. The new solution is designed for use on laminated or oriented strand board.

Michem Wood Release 3002 is a new non-silicon, continuous belt conditioner that seals the surface of the press belt. It is easily dilutable with water and is sprayed on the belt during fiber mat processing. Michem Wood Release 3002 improves cleanliness, reduces the frequency of required cleanings, and 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.
