Die casting release agents


40 years of accumulated experience in the field of design and development of release agents for the metal industry.

Metalflow’s pressure Die Casting release agents are the result of decades of experience in the field of design and development of release agents for the metal industry.
Technological lubricants and auxiliary products developed with the latest advances to improve the processes, help our clients with their waste management and allow them to comply with the most demanding environmental regulations.

Water based release agents

CASTFLOW products are dilutable water-based release agents. Its different ranges have been developed to achieve an excellent film formation in a wide temperature range, to reduce the loss of product due to over-use and to protect the die from metallization and oxidation, offering the highest cleanliness, perfect finishes and reducing cycle times.

A DESTACAR:
  • Excellent lubrication properties to achieve an easy extraction of the part.
  • High efficiency in a wide temperature range.
  • Facilitate the flow of the molten metal to ensure an optimal filling.
  • Exclusive additives to optimize the cooling of the die.
  • Compatible with recirculation and recycling system.
  • Avoid pipes and nozzles from clogging.
  • Extend the die life, avoiding metallization and oxidation.

  • Less product consumption.
  • Eco-friendly: no water consumption or fumes generation.
  • High efficiency at high temperatures.
  • No porosity defects.
  • Minimization of die thermal shock.
  • Drastic reduction of cycle times.
