Wax Release Agents
Our release waxes are chemical agents that prevents your part form attaching permanently to the surface of your mould. It is particularly useful in casting and is often considered the oldest form of mould release. Wax is easy to apply by hand, and can be used on new and existing moulds (make sure you give it a good clean first!).
Two of our most popular wax products; Meguiars mirror glaze and Honey Wax.
Meguiars Mirror Glaze creates a barrier film, with ultra-high gloss finished parts. When applied correctly it offers multiple releases without the need to re-apply. Mirror Glaze is recognised as the industry’s ‘standard’ for paste mould release wax. It can withstand exothermic temperatures up to 121˚C.
Honey wax is a high gloss past wax, compounded with the purest grade carnauba wax. It is more durable and resistant to abrasion. Honey wax creates a durable wax surface that is suitable for multiple pulls.
PVA Release Agents
Our PVA release come in a blue colour so that when applying to your mould, you can see where has been covered and where still requires attention. Only one coat should be applied, as additional coats will result in an uneven surface.
Moulds must be thoroughly cleaned before re-applying, expensive cleaning products are not always necessary, as often water and lint-free cloth will be enough to clean a mould.
Chemical Release Agents
We offer an expansive range of release agents that can enhance productivity, improve part and surface quality. We offer water based, solvent based, silicone and silicone free release products that offer improved operational efficiencies and product quality.
Our semi-permanent release agents offer many mould releases between applications and offer efficient release ease. Small amounts can be applied resulting in a cleaner working environment, less storage space required and better efficiency due to applying the release system less frequently.
Waxes can be used with polyester, epoxy and vinylester resins, and are usually applied by hand using a soft, lint free cloth.
Internal Release Agents
If PVA is applied over mould release wax, ensure the mould release wax contains no silicones as separation or `fish-eyes` will result if silicones are present. PVA release film can easily be removed from moulds and mouldings with water.
