Innovative molders in the manufacturing industry know that a clean mold is an effective mold. If your current cleaning products aren't doing the job and causing unnecessary downtime, then it's time to re-evaluate which mold cleaners you use.

Here at Stoner Molding Solutions, we make mold releases, sealers, cleaners, and lubricants to help you release more molded parts in less time. In addition, our mold cleaners are specifically designed to work fast and remove difficult build-up, allowing you to increase your molding productivity.

Clean Molds Improve Production Efficiency

Even if you use the best mold release products and sealers on the market from Stoner Molding, they will not be as effective on dirty molds. Molds need to be free of grease, oil, residual resin, and other contaminants for mold releases and sealers to work correctly. Also, a dirty mold can result in part discoloration or poor mold performance.

To improve production efficiency, you need to start with a clean mold. Before putting a mold into production, you should clean it—and then adhere to a regular cleaning schedule to prevent unnecessary downtime.

Household cleaners just aren't going to cut it in an industrial environment. That's why you need to trust the molding experts at Stoner for the best mold cleaners available.

Types of Mold Cleaners Available from Stoner Molding

For nearly 80 years, we have been making release products for molding companies. During that time, we have developed and distributed mold cleaners that have specific purposes, depending on the part being produced and the type of mold used. Our most popular cleaning products include one of the industry's only non-trichloroethylene, non-flammable cleaners, as well as non-chlorinated, citrus, and water-based, high pH varieties.
