In mould coatings

Cost and time production savings, stronger adhesion and resistance to abrasion compared to PU common varnishes.

IN MOULD COATINGS

In Mould Coating (IMC) varnish is directly sprayed into the mould, right after the application of the release agent and right before the PU injection or pouring.

By reacting simultaneously with the PU during its foaming, in mould coating resistance to abrasion and adhesion is stronger than the common varnishes for PU.

Beside these qualitative benefits, the IMC boosts industrial productivity by avoiding time demanding operations like substrate washing after demoulding.

What Kezal offers

Kezal Specialty Chemicals has been one of the first companies to believe in the industrial success of ecofriendly IMC that adds the environmental sustainability to productive and qualitative benefits.

Kezal’s In Mould Coatings (IMC) formulations are indeed mainly water-based, and just upon request solvent based.

The high covering power of Kezal’s IMC requires a low consumption of varnish and is compatible with every PU production process, since it does not affect pre-existing industrial timing.

The bi-component 2K line is moreover the perfect choice to further increase the resistance against atmospheric agents and detergents, obtaining the maximum durability.

SECTOR SPECIALITIES

FOOTWEAR

Fake Double Density Effect: Kezal IMC allows to obtain the typical bi color effect of the double density soles on a single density sole in a quickly, cheap and effective way.

Anti – Yellowing System: Kezal white IMC successfully slows down the unavoidable PU yellowing photodegradation, by acting as additional barrier between UV sun rays and the PU material.

AUTOMOTIVE

IMC for PU – Rigid: Kezal IMC provides an excellent base to be over-painted, which allows to eliminate the usual sanding (scraping) process.

IMC for PU – Integral: Kezal IMC covers the casting defects by ensuring a uniform finishing, thus removing the post-extraction painting step.

IMC for PU – Gel: Kezal IMC removes the natural stickiness of the material, making the following production steps easier and by avoiding the encapsulation in sheets.
