Semi-Permanent Mold Release System

 

FORMULA FIVE® MOLD CLEANER

FORMULA FIVE® Mold Cleaner dissolves mold surface build up caused by wax, silicone, and other contaminants such as grease and dirt allowing them to be wiped off without softening or dulling mold surface.  Used for general cleaning of most mold substrates including those composed of fiberglass, aluminum, steel and thermoset resins. Cleans without abrasives and can be used between molding cycles to remove uncured resin and other contaminates without stripping off underlying coat of semi-permanent mold release.

FORMULA FIVE® WAX STRIPPER

FORMULA FIVE® Wax Stripper is a medium duty cleaner that dissolves mold surface build up caused by wax, silicone, and other contaminants such as grease and dirt allowing them to be wiped off without softening or dulling mold surface. Used for deep cleaning of most mold substrates when changing from wax or silicone release systems to semi-permanent systems. This stripper is also recommended for deep cleaning of highly detailed mold surfaces such as “non skid”. To dissolve more stubborn deposits, allow product to soak on the mold surface and use scrub brush before wiping off. Should be followed with a warm water wash and final cleaning with FORMULA FIVE® Mold Cleaner and dried.

FORMULA FIVE® MOLD STRIPPER

FORMULA FIVE® Mold Stripper is a more aggressive cleaner that dissolves mold surface build up caused by resin deposits and styrene buildup and aids in removal of semi-permanent release agents. Used for deep cleaning of most mold substrates when changing from wax or silicone release systems to semi-permanent systems. This stripper is also recommended for deep cleaning of highly detailed mold surfaces such as “non skid”. To dissolve more stubborn deposits, allow product to soak on the mold surface and use scrub brush before wiping off. Should be followed with a warm water wash and final cleaning with FORMULA FIVE® Mold Cleaner and dried.

FORMULA FIVE® MOLD SEALER

FORMULA FIVE® Mold Sealer is a high durability semi-permanent base coat designed for use on composite, glass, aluminum and steel mold or plug substrates. Seals the mold surface and fills micro-porosity to create a smooth high gloss surface. Recommended for most molding processes including contact molding, hand lay up, spray up, cast polymer and closed molding. Particularly recommended for use in new composite mold initialization, sealing reconditioned or repaired areas of previously seasoned molds, and as a base coat to optimize performance of semi-permanent top coats. Also recommended as a mold sealer with sacrificial mold release systems such as wax, polymeric, spray or wipe on slip coat mold releases. Wipe on or spray on and wipe off application. Recommended application temperature is 70°F (21°C); do not apply to hot molds over 350°F (177°C). Suitable for process temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).

FORMULA FIVE® GLOSSY TOP COAT

FORMULA FIVE® Glossy Top Coat is designed to release gelcoated polyester, vinylester or epoxy parts from most substrates, including metal or gelcoated mold surfaces yielding a streak free high gloss cosmetic finish. Simple wipe on/leave on application, yields class “A” finishes and multiple releases per application with minimal mold build up. Can be used with most molding processes. Only use FORMULA FIVE® Glossy Top Coat after mold surface has been cleaned and prepared with FORMULA FIVE® Mold Sealer. For application to molds at temperatures of 70 ºF (21 ºC) – 160 ºF (71 ºC).

FORMULA FIVE®  MATTE TOP COAT

FORMULA FIVE® Matte Top Coat aids in the release of both gelcoated and non-gelcoated fiberglass (FRP/GRP), phenolic, epoxy, polyester and vinylester, rubber and many PU (polyurethane) foams and elastomer parts from most substrates, including aluminum, steel, or gelcoated mold and plug surfaces. Also extends life of silicone rubber molds. A high slip mold release that produces minimal build up and yields multiple releases per application. Ideally suited for applications where transfer of release agent to finished part must be avoided. This product will maintain a matte finish on parts made from matte finish molds. A very robust and chemically resistant semi-permanent that can be used in non-gelcoated applications, with primer gelcoats, and with heavily filled matrices such as cast polymer and polymer concrete, aggressive resin systems such as DCPD, and in many non-cosmetic applications such as roto-casting, male molds and “B” sides of closed molding operations. Ideal for challenging mold surfaces such as “non-skid” and can replace flange, edge or hat wax with the advantage of eliminating risk of contaminating cosmetic mold surfaces; no sealer or polishing required. Suitable for use with process temperatures up to 400 ºF (204 ºC), best when applied to molds that are at a temperature of or post-cured at 100 ºF (38 ºC) – 150 ºF (66 ºC).
