Waxes Release Agents Result

Waxes and Release Agents

The selection of the correct release agent is vital to the success of any moulding process and it must be ensured that the release agent is compatible with both the tool material and the material being cast or laminated into the tool.

PVA Red Releasing Agent Products

PVA Red Releasing Agent

PVA Red Release Agent used in conjunction with RAMWAX RUN IN to prevent the bonding of the gelcoat and the mould.

PVA Red Releasing Agent supplied in 500g, 1kg, 5kg and 23kg.

Please note: PVA Red Release Agent not to be used in conjunction with RAMWAX Silicone Release as this could cause adhesion to the mould and product.

Semi-Permanent

Mould Cleaner

Mould Cleaner is a special blend of solvents that dissolves and removes wax from composite moulds without dulling the surface. Excellent for epoxy and metal mould surfaces as well as brushes and equipment. Mould Cleaner eliminates contaminants on the mould surface and enhances release effectiveness. Apply Mould Cleaner to mould surfaces with a clean cotton cloth. Wax (or other surface contamination) will immediately begin to dissolve and should be removed from the surface with a second clean cloth while it is still dissolved in the Mould Cleaner.

Max Use Temp: 20°C to 30°C

Mould Sealer

Easy to apply Mould Sealer with high thermal stability. Mould Sealer is formulated to seal mould micro porosity and light surface scratches. Used in conjunction with other products, Mould Sealer provides an excellent base coat enhancing the release advantages offered. Apply light uniform coats to clean mould surfaces by spraying, brushing, dipping or wiping with a clean, lint-free cotton cloth. Apply a minimum of 2 coats, allowing 30 min between coats. The final coating will cure within 24 h at room temperature.

Fast Curing Mould Sealer

Fast Curing Mould Sealer is an easy to apply, fast curing mould porosity sealer for glass fibre reinforced polyester, epoxy and other resin-type moulds. Use to seal new moulds and older moulds with micro-porosity and light surface blemishes. An excellent base coat enhancing the release advantages of all products. Apply at room temperature by wiping on with a clean, dry, lint-free cotton cloth. Wipe on a smooth, wet film; wait 15-20 sec, then gently wipe dry. Apply 1-3 coats, allowing 15-20 min between coats and after the final coat.

Max Use Temp: 15°C to 20°C

Fast Evaporating Release Agent

Fast Evaporating Release Agent is a low odor, fast evaporating version of Versatile Release Agent. Fast Evaporating Release Agent offers excellent release for various moulding applications and can be used as a direct replacement for Versatile Release Agent. Fast Evaporating Release Agent can be used for fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP) composites and for the release of epoxies, polyester resins, vinyl ester resins, thermoplastics, adhesives, and rotationally moulded plastics. Fast Evaporating Release Agent is particularly well suited for tougher to release processes such as filament winding and non gel coated polyester and fiberglass moulding. It cures rapidly at room temperature to give a high gloss finish to the moulded parts. Apply to clean mould surfaces by spraying, brushing or wiping with a clean, lint-free cotton cloth. Apply up to 4 coats; allow 5-10 minutes between coats. Touch up as necessary.

Max Use Temp: 400°C

Versatile Release Agent

Versatile Release Agent that provides high slip where mould geometry problems are encountered. Versatile Release Agent releases epoxies, polyester resins, thermoplastics, rubber compounds and most other moulded polymers. It cures rapidly at Room Temperature to give a high gloss finish to the moulded parts. Versatile Release Agent cures quickly at room temperature. Apply to clean mould surfaces by spraying, brushing or wiping with a clean, lint-free, cotton cloth. Apply up to 4 coats, allowing 5-10 min between coats. Touch up as necessary.

Max Use Temp: 400°C

Semi-Permanent Release Agent

Semi-Permanent Release polymer designed to provide multiple release for most moulding processes with no contaminating transfer. Semi-Permanent Release Agent provides a matt finish. This semi-permanent, non-migratory release system chemically bonds to the mould surface to form a micro thin film which is stable at temperatures exceeding most moulding processes. Semi-Permanent Release Agent can be used for the release of epoxies, polyester resins, thermoplastics, adhesives, and for fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP) composites. Apply 3-6 coats to clean mould surfaces by wiping, brushing or spraying a thin continuous wet film. Allow 15 min between coats to dry. Curing of the final coat takes 3 hours at room temperature and can be shortened by heating the mould for 15 min at 100-150°C.

Max Use Temp: 400°C
