PET sheet productions need to mold release agents before the thermoforming process. The main purpose is to provide anti-static effect, lubricity, homogeneous coverage on top of the pet sheet. These mold release agents can be two different types which are silicone emulsions and anti-blocking agents. Silicone emulsions are generally used in PET sheet production.
There are two types of silicone emulsions due to mold release. One of them is a micro silicone emulsion which has clearness appearance, low viscosity. Its particle size is around 40nm. Therefore it provides homogenous coverage with a clearness effect. The other type is a macro silicone emulsion which has a White opaque appearance. Some of the macro silicone emulsions cause to hazy effect and non-homogenous coverage on the pet sheet, but macro silicone solutions of Latro Kimya provides homogenous coverage and clearness effect on top of the pet sheet even if colorful pet sheet or transparent pet sheet. Moreover, our micro and macro silicone emulsions have an anti-static effect, FDA approved excellent stability, clear effect, homogeneous effect. These product groups shorten the drying time in pet sheet production, provide surface smoothness, and do not stain on the pet sheet. Our silicone emulsions can be by padding, nozzles, spraying, and kiss roll.
