The ACMOS 1124B is a preventative release agent paste for veneer presses which use urea formaldehyde and melamine resin adhesives. This compound does not contain oils or silicones.
Classified as non Hazardous/Hazmat for DOT Shipping makes this product much more affordable to ship without any hazmat shipping fees.
It is designed to protect the press platens and veneered surfaces by having reduced adhesion to the press plates - residual adhesive can be removed easily without damaging the platen surfaces. Can be used on cold and hot platen presses. Suitable for all pressing temperatures above 120°C; no effect on rubber.
ACMOS 1124B Features:
- Prevents adhesive residue from bonding to press platens
- Use with UF, MUF, Resins and PVA's
- Does not contain oils or silicones
- Compatible with staining and varnishing
Application: Spray / Pull-Bar - Apply thinly and only to hot surfaces or heat plates to help produce a dense, cured resistant protective film. Reapply on a regular basis depending on production use to help prevent further adhesive adherence to plates. Apply as thinly as possible with a cloth or drawbar (felt sheet). Always apply release agents only to hot surfaces or heat press plates after application. Only in this way is a densely fused, resistant protective film produced. Can also be used for veneer splicing machines.

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET:
No substances regarded as toxic or carcinogenic according to the Regulation concerning Dangerous Substances are used in the production of ACMOS 1124B.
Range of application:
Apply as thinly as possible with a cloth or drawbar (felt sheet). Always apply release agents only to hot surfaces or heat press plates after application. A densely fused, resistant protective film is produced only in this way.
ACMOS 1124B does not contain oils or silicones. It is compatible with staining and varnishing. Even light-colored or sensitive woods are not discolored or attacked. ACMOS 1124B protects the surfaces of the press plates; the veneered surfaces do not adhere to the press plates and glue residues can easily be removed. Suitable for all pressing temperatures even above 120°C. No effect on rubber. Extremely good compatibility with the skin. Can also be used on anodised heating plates/press plates.

Why release agents are important
Release agents are critical to prevent glue and adhesives from sticking on both edgebanding machining tools and workpiece surfaces. They are developed in a liquid form and as such can be used in both automatic and manual edge processing.
Release agents are sprayed on the top and bottom of the workpiece edge areas. This prevents adhesive residue from sticking to the workpiece. Release Agents work with a variety of glues and adhesives for high-quality woods, veneers, and plastic-coated surfaces.
Reduces production downtime due to cleaning. The process of edging can lead to unwanted glue residue on materials and equipment. Without the use of a release agent, glue residue can quickly stick and become very difficult to clean and remove. This results in a loss of production and machine downtime. Production employees are forced to spend valuable time cleaning up, instead of streamlining the manufacturing process. By using a release agent, a thin, barely visible lubricant film is formed, which prevents the adhesion of glue residues, thus avoiding time-consuming cleanup work.
Helps maintain production equipment. A common problem with edge processing is undesired glue buildup on machining tools. Glue buildup can cause unnecessary wear and tear on tools and lead to increased machine maintenance and costs. The continuous use of release agents protects the components of an edgebander, such as pressure rollers, trimming tools, hot melt adhesive tanks and buffing wheels against glue buildup. Using release agents is very important to the longevity of equipment.
Promotes high-quality finishes. Perfect, high-quality surfaces are a premium for edgebanding. During application, glue squeeze out occurs, which often creates glue lines and residue, thus affecting the quality of finished products. Release agents used during the edgebanding process prevent adhesive residues from sticking, while protecting the edge and foil from marks and friction, thus providing excellent surfaces.
