Mandrel release agent
Pico Chemical Corp. has introduced
Picoguard 6275, a mandrel release
agent that forms a firm film without
dripping. Developed to meet the
requirements of processors who need
clean separation of flat-rolled metal
from the mandrels after recoiling, the
thixotropic lubricant eliminates oil
runoff and coil telescoping.
While it appears as gel in its at-rest
state, it readily liquefies when moved
so that it can be applied at room temperature by hand-held spray or brush
applicators. The agent sets up quickly
on the mandrel surface without dripping before a cardboard liner is inserted or the coil is wrapped around. The
coating lasts for many rewindings and
will not soak into cardboard liners.
