Hose and Tube Products

W N SHAW custom formulates water-based release lubricants for rubber hose and tube production, for all mandrel types (shaped mandrels, rigid mandrels, and flexible mandrels) and pan-cure applications

W N SHAW release agents are designed to meet the strict standards of the most critical hose systems in the automotive and industrial hose manufacturing industry.

W N SHAW offers release agents for all common rubber types including EPDM, NR, NBR, NBR/PVC, CR, CSM, SBR, ECO, FKM, Vamac, Acrylic, and Silicone.

W N SHAW formulates release products to match the current or preferred application methods that will optimize hose production.

Mandrel Release Product Target Characteristics

Excellent Loading & Releasing
Superior lubricity for loading and releasing hose from complex mandrels.
No Build-Up
Excellent release characteristics that minimizing residue on mandrels and on the inside diameter of finished hoses.
Hose Dimension Integrity
Prevent defects such as pitting, pin-holes, blooming or swelling of the inside diameter.
Silicone, Fluorine, and Solvent free
Products do not contain any materials that will affect the post production testing performance of critical hose systems for customers who have component specific demands for mandrel release.
Washing Characteristics
Excellent washing and anti-foaming characteristics, which will breakdown easily and safely in normal drainage systems.
Temperature Stability
Stable at high temperatures for the most demanding hose production situations

Pan Cure Release Characteristics for Hose and Tube

  • Excellent anti-tack and anti-blocking characteristics for cured and uncured hoses.
  • All water-based pan cure products can be produced free of silicone, solvents, fluorocarbons, waxes, and stearates.
  • Anti-tack and anti-block products will not build-up on hose surfaces or leave residue in the curing pans.
  • Easily washed off and will degrade safely in normal drainage systems.
  • Will not interfere with ink coding or painting.
