We can offer our customers both the conventional release agents and/or our innovative small quantities.

Conventional spraying process vs. small quantity spraying process
Conventional spraying processes with a mixture of release agent and water require heat regulation with high consumption of release agent
Small quantity spray processes with micro release agents do not require heat regulation and allow a significantly reduced consumption of release agents.

Clear advantages of small quantity spraying
  • Mould temperature conventional spraying process can be used up to approx. 200°C.
  • Mould temperature of small quantity spraying, can be used up to approx. 400°C.
  • Finest atomisation of the release agent in the low quantity spray process.
  • Small quantity spray process is designed for low media output.
  • A new type of release agent, which enables the formation of an adequate release film even at higher mould temperatures, is used.
Quantity of release agent used
  • Release agent application conventional spraying process spray approx. 3 to 10 liters.
  • Release agent application spray small quantities approx. 5 to 100 milliliters.
  • The guiding principle of small quantity spraying is to use the release agent in accordance with its actual purpose and to spray only minimal quantities.
