Niklon-Plus® has been developed as a surface treatment to address the toughest of moulding challenges. It is eco-friendly given that it is not a silicone based solution.
Nicklon aids in release on straight no-draft cores, cavities, deep ribs, bosses or E.D.M. It also ais in corrosion protection for gas producing resins such as PVC.
Experience has proven this coating to be invaluable in many various molding applications. Nicklon’s self-lubricating properties work well in grease-free molding conditions. Slides, ejector pins, and bushings work smoothly and gall-free.
Results with Nicklon may vary due to mold design, resin properties and operating parameters.
