Mandrel Release Agents

Mandrel release agents are synthetic liquid lubricants, which drastically reduce the friction between an uncured hose and the mandrel and remain effective until the cured hose has been removed from the hot mandrel. By reducing both the effort required to push the uncured hose onto the mandrel and pull the cured hose off the mandrel, our Struktol release agents simplify the production process, and in some extreme cases make the process viable. Additionally, many of our mandrel release agents are biodegradable.

Application of Mandrel Release Agents

All Struktol MR products (except gel types) can be applied by simply dipping the uncured hoses and brushing or spraying the material onto the mandrel.
