Product Description

MCL C10 is a compression-grade melamine mold cleaning material designed for cleaning transfer molding equipment and epoxy molds. While more rigid than the rubber cleaning solutions it is able to go into the deeper corners of the mold removing hidden and hard to approach stains

MCL-C10 is applied by manually laying an appropriate amount of pellets on top of the mold and applying heat and pressure (compression) for a certain amount of time. In our case it needs 2 - 5 minutes @ 150 - 190°C with 10tons clamping pressure for a good result. It is very easy and effective to handle so it requires only ~ 3 shots to clean all stains and residues for most cleaning processes.By shots we mean repeating the cleaning process from the start.

MCL-C10 can be supplied in loose powder if you want to pelletize yourself, in granular form and of course in 5 x 5cm melamine cleaning pellets with a V groove break point to make it easier to break, lay down and apply on the mold. One of the main selling points of MCL-C10 (other than its cleaning performance) is the almost nonexistent amount of Formaldehyde. Generally speaking formaldehyde is the chemical responsible for cleaning your mold but is also not the safest ingredient for handling manually. That's why we came up with this innovative but proven formulation that cleans very well without being toxic to the people involved in the process.

Specific Gravity
Specific Gravity
Specific gravity (SG) is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a reference substance; equivalently, it is the ratio of the mass of a substance to the mass of a reference substance for the same given volume.

For liquids, the reference substance is almost always water (1), while for gases, it is air (1.18) at room temperature. Specific gravity is unitless.
Shelf Life
Shelf Life
Shelf life is the amount of time after manufacturing that a product is guaranteed to retain its properties.

It differs vastly per product and it is based on temperature and storage conditions.

The properties can be guaranteed for the temperature and time range indicated on the TDS since those are the ones tested to be the best for the product.
Shelf Life @ 5°C 730 days

Other Properties
RoHS Compliant
RoHS Compliant
RoHS is a product level compliance based on a European Union Directive which restricts the Use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS).

Products compliant with this directive do not exceed the allowable amounts of the following restricted materials: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), with some limited exemptions
Curing Conditions
Curing Schedule
Curing Schedule
Curing schedule is the time and temperature required for a mixed material to fully cure. While this applies to materials that cure with heat, there are also other materials that can be cured with UV.

Even though some materials can cure on ambient temperatures, others will require elevated temperature conditions to properly cure.

There are various curing schedules depending on the material type and application. For heat curing, the most common ones are Snap cure, Low temperature cure, Step cure and Staged cure.

Recommended cure type, schedule, time and temperature can always be found on the Technical data sheets.
Cure Time 2 - 5 min
Mold Temperature 150 - 190 °C

Additional Information

Compression mold cleaning for transfer equipment? Is this a typo?
Don't be confused with compression grade mixed up with transfer mold. Cleaning process and terminology is slightly different from molding. A compression cleaning compound is literally compressed on top of a transfer mold. It might sound confusing but that's industrial terminology for you.
