Huntsman has developed two groups of release agents for the manufacture of MDF. The first is applied internally to the fibres. These can be mixed in-line with the resin and added directly to the blowline. This system results in no emissions but can lead to higher dosage rates. The second, a range of external release agents, can be sprayed directly onto the press belt of continuous presses. This system is a more cost-effective solution as it utilises lower dosage rates through being applied directly to the press belt.
