CINCINNATI (Feb. 1, 2008) — ITW Franklynn Industries Inc. has acquired TSE Industries Inc.'s line of Crystal-brand mold releases. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
Cincinnati-based Franklynn — a business unit of Illinois Tool Works Inc. — said Crystal mold releases "form a clear, strong bond to mold surfaces, allowing for multiple releases before touch-up." They can be used in rubber, polyurethane and other plastic molding materials.
"Crystal mold releases fit well into our product portfolio and will become a strategic element in extending our technological reach," said Ralph M. Lopez, Franklynn Industries general manager.
