Bluestar Silicones Unveiled Lyndcoat® BR2512, a Multi-release Agent at Tire Tech. Expo'14

Published on 2014-02-17. Author : SpecialChem

As a major supplier of release systems to the tire industry, Bluestar Silicones launched several new products in its LYNDCOAT® range at Tire Technology Expo 2014. LYNDCOAT® tire release agents can be tailor-made to fit manufacturers' processes and meet their needs of productivity, quality and reliability.

Bluestar Silicones Lyndcoat® range offers unique solutions for tire lubricants, bladder coatings, mold release agents.

Often, the release agent application step limits the tire production capacity and requires important investment to be able to increase production volumes. In order to overcome this or to avoid investment, Bluestar Silicones' latest generation multi-release inside paint Lyndcoat® BR2512 has been developed. The challenge for Bluestar Silicones was to propose a new multi-release agent, with overall improved properties. It allows customers to decrease their costs, and gives the best possible compromise between durability, slip and air bleed, resulting in very low defect rates and high bladder life extension.

For improved productivity

During the development of Lyndcoat® BR2512, Bluestar concentrated on combining improved durability with high air bleed and excellent slip, giving access to reduced defect rates and improved bladder life. A factory trial comparing Lyndcoat® BR2512 bladder release with a non-filled, multi-release material showed drastic reduction of off center tires and a 20% increase in bladder life.

Cost savings

In addition to these productivity improvements, Bluestar Silicones has also focused on the cost of the release agent treatment. Lyndcoat® BR2512 allows for a reduction in coat weight, while still offering high performance and low defect rates. This insures a direct benefit for customers due to reduced release agent consumption and significant savings in occupied warehouse space and internal transport.

Tailor-made products

All of Bluestar Silicones commercial Lyndcoat® products were at origin tailor-made to fit manufacturers' processes and meet their needs of productivity, quality and reliability.

A dedicated team of engineers works in close cooperation with the tire manufacturers to develop the release agents that will help to reach their targets in productivity and reliability.
