Lyndcoat(R) BR 2511 RTU is a very versatile semi-permanent inside tire paint which can be used in passenger & light truck tire production as well as in SUV and truck and bus tire production.

It allows for a particularly clean operation while all the key performance parameters like air bleed, slip & release performance and bladder protection are assured.

Its special features allow for use as a multiple release band-ply lubricant in situations where, up until now, only traditional single release band-ply lubricants could be used.

This enables tire plants to increase their output and productivity without the need for additional investment in spraying equipment or manpower.

Bluestar Silicones currently produces Lyndcoat(R) release agents for the tire industry in four plants located in the USA, Brazil, Spain and China.

Bluestar Silicones is a global supplier of silicones with a turnover of EUR600 million and manufacturing sites in all regions of the world. Bluestar Silicones is one of the world's leading manufacturers of completely integrated silicones. With over 50 years' experience in silicones, Bluestar Silicones offers a complete range of silicone products in the fields of release coatings, specialty elastomers, health products, specialty fluids, emulsions and resins.
