In this article we present the case study of the company Espumas Moldeadas Internacional (ESMOINSE) (Barcelona) dedicated to the production of pieces of molded polyurethane foam.

The company ESMOINSE manufactures, among other products, protective knee pads for hockey players made of flexible polyurethane foam with integral skin. These kneepads are formed by means of molds to which it is necessary to apply demolding agents that allow an easy extraction of the piece, at the same time that they provide the surface with the desired finish. Concentrol has the LP IDC-5-12 CR and LP IC-227 CES release agents that cover ESMOINSE’s needs for the production of these knee pads. Both references are release agents with an excellent release capacity even in difficult areas. The release agent is applied by means of a spray gun that allows a homogeneous film to be formed on the mold, providing the necessary quantity of active material for demolding and avoiding excessive soiling of molds. A reference or another will be chosen depending on the working temperatures in the production of the knee pads and the desired finishes, i. e. satin-finish or satin-matt.

In the following video you can see the process of applying the release agents and the result:
