DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is a mold release agent from ITW Pro Brands that was developed to meet the growing needs of FKM seal and gasket manufacturers who serve the automotive supply industry. In addition to fluorocarbon-based fluoroelastomers, this versatile mold release can be used with silicones, peroxide-cured EPDMs, and polyacrylates. This demonstration video from ITW Pro Brands shows how DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is packaged, applied, and used.
3M has recently launched new web resources for its next generation of 3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomers (FKMs). These next-gen FKMs offer many benefits over previous products, including high to excellent resistance against chemical fluids and good physical properties right out of the press. Plus, due to their ability to be cured without metal oxides, these FKMs have improved acid resistance for reduced volume swell.
