Michelman has introduced Michem Wood Release 1117A, which is used as a release agent for pMDI based oriented strand board, linear strand board and particleboard engineered wood. It provides a low COF coating creating release of the wood fiber from the press plate, resulting in a lighter colored board with reduced buildup. Michem Wood Release 1117A exhibits minimal nasal irritation compared to other soap based products.
Michem Wood Release 1117A resists transfer from the wood fiber to the process, virtually eliminating process slip issues while increasing productivity. It also exhibits minimal nasal irritation compared to other soap based products. It is easily dilutable with water and can be applied by spraying over the fiber mat, board caul or press plate.
