RCS 520| Rubber Cleaning Sheets


Main features
  • Prestage cleaning
  • Dissolving characteristics
  • No mold abrasion

Product Description

RCS 520 Rubber cleaning sheets are mainly used as first stage dissolvers for messy molds before RCS 320 comes into play. A combination of RCS 520 for pre treatment and RCS 320 ensures amazing cleaning results. This first stage is also commonly achieved by transfer cleaning pellets but RCS 520 has the advantage of retaining the same application method throughout the cleaning and conditioning process. Stage, Clean, Condition, all done with sheets.

RCS 520 softens the yellow volatile remains of the molding processes and RCS 320 comes right after to finish the job. They can both be used independently but a combination is suggested for excellent results on the most persistent stains.

RCS 520 sheets perform well in a wide range of molds, are able to withstand a torque of 10 lb-in to 46 lb-in and have a curing time of only 250-350 seconds. These sheets offer stain dissolving properties with strong odor and minimal fumes. As all Rubber cleaning sheets, they are suitable for compression grade cleaning.

RCS 520 rubber cleaning sheets, just like RCS 320, have good flow characteristics which enable them to clean mold corners and thin gate areas easily. A common application profile would be 2 shots of RCS520, followed by 2 shots of RCS320 for deep cleaning, topped up with 2 shots of WS360 for conditioning. Quick, efficient and complete cleaning and conditioning solution.

Technical Specifications

General Properties
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 365 days
Other Properties
Shots 1 - 3
Curing Conditions
Mold Temperature 160 - 190 °C
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 4 - 6 min

Additional Information

Storage and packaging

These rubber sheets should be kept cooled in a temperature below 5°C. Their shelf life in these storage conditions is 12 months. After taking them out of storage they have 4 days to be used before they lose their effectiveness.

They are packaged in PE bags and come in 10Kg (net) boxes. Exact width is not stated since the sheets can be arrayed for the application and width is adjusted to the box size to accommodate the net weight.

 

Warning

It is recommended to use the sheets in a well ventilated area. Your skin should not come in contact with them when the rubber is hot and you should avoid storing them at temperatures above 30°C.
