Release agents and glues

Everything for spraying in the footwear industry

Knowing which products are most suitable to be used for spraying release agents, glues, lubricants during the production of rubber shoes, soles or footwear represents an advantage in the management of your plants and guarantees an increase in finished products in less time and with a significant product savings. The footwear and plastic companies that deal with the production of soles and shoes can deal with different types of processes, such as:

  • spray the release agents for soles and shoes
  • detach the bottoms in plastic materials for various types of soles and plateaus, for monoblocks, insoles and clogs
  • produce semi-finished products for footwear 
  • use injection machines to make boots, soles, sandals and technical items of all kinds
  • use injection molding machines on the upper
  • use polyurethane molding machines

In each of these companies, spraying and painting represent one of the stages of processing the material, whether it is leather, rubber or plastic materials. The footwear industry market is constantly evolving, and requires constant search for quality, knowledge, flexibility and cooperation, in order to obtain final products without defects: this is why companies invest in the improvement of their production plants, with an ever greater attention to the environment.

What can be achieved with automatic spraying?

The innovation in these companies is linked to the modernization of the molding and injection systems, which must ensure the presence of equipment with robotic applications, which are very fast and precise in their movements. Thanks to the presence of robots and spray guns that nebulize the product on the mold evenly, it is now possible to spray release agents, rubbers, lubricants, polyurethane and plastic liquids inside the mold faster and with a considerable saving of time: in these systems, the automatic spray guns are mounted on robotic arms, which perform precise movements to distribute the product evenly on the mold and ensure that the sole can be formed or detached (depending on the type of processing) without problems. Thanks to the automatic painting, it is possible to guarantee an excellent product transfer: the robot recognizes, in fact, the surface to work on and the set program guarantees a uniform nebulization without multiple passages in the same point, ensuring a saving of time and product.
