Coating a mold with rust preventative is an age-old process that helps in keeping them safe. This process is performed even during the dull times of the production. However, before putting the mold into the line, you must take out the rust preventative, which is a time taking process. Moreover, this needs to be done repetitively

to ensure that nothing is leaching out and marking parts of the plastic process equipment.

Most production houses prefer a “dry” rust preventative as it does not penetrate into ejector pins slides, cams, and other moving mold parts and allows a faster & cleaner startup at the time of putting the mold into production.  This very type of rust preventative “comes off” the mold very easily and all-at-once, saving you both time and effort. This offers you time for the production line like never before.

One such impeccable slide rust preventatives are Slide’s Mold Shield. It is based on the use of a unique combination of oils that leaves a dry film on the mold’s surface. Besides offering a clean and fast start-up, this dry sheet also offers protection against rust for up to 2 years. The dry oil film is stuck to the surface and does not stick to the ejector pins or any hand to clean areas making the start-up easy, efficient & time-saving.

The best part about this shield is that it is free from any chlorinated solvents, so if you were searching for one, your search ends here.If you are wondering if this product will work on your process, you can request a free sample kit by filling out your information in the online quoting form and select “mold spray sample”.
