Description

GP-61 is a 100% active amine functional silicone wax. This novel silicone wax copolymer is readily soluble, after melting in mineral spirits, to provide a solvent-based release agent. GP-61 is recommended for evaluation as a lubricant, water repellent, antiblocking agent and internal processing aid for thermoplastics. The amine functionality provides temporary rust protection and good bonding to mold substrates. Since GP-61 contains no dimethyl silicone, it will not cause orange peel, fish eyes or similar effects associated with conventional silicones. GP-61 may be easily removed by steam cleaning or solvent wash. GP-58 has the following special features:

  • Acts as a Rust Protective Coating
  • Unique Silicone Copolymer Provides Excellent Metal on Metal Lubrication
  • Acts as an Antiblocking Coating when Applied to Uncured Rubber Products
  • Acts as a Rubber and Plastic Mold Release Agent Lubricant

Processing and Safety Guidelines

GP-61 may be converted to a solvent based product by first melting the wax, and with stirring, adding to a solution of mineral spirits. A stable 10% active product can be made this way. Note - use caution with flammable or combustible materials. GP-58 may also be blended with other Genesee Polymers' silicone fluids for use as internal processing aids in the rubber manufacturing industry. For safety requirements, refer to Safety Data Sheet.

Packaging/Handling/Storage

GP-61 is supplied in 5-gallon (35 lbs.) pails and 55-gallon (390 lbs.) drums. No special storage is required.
