It is used to seal and microscopic pores that exist throughout the tooling surface. pds Chemlease® 15 Sealer EZ Chemlease® 15 Sealer EZ is a high performance sealer developed to condition and seal mold surfaces, reduce mold porosity and act as a base for new or reconditioned molds.
- Release agents
Product name Application Product Data Sheet Stoner/SPC-Honey Wax® Is a unique , high gloss paste wax for use by composite fabricators as a mould release agent. It is an excellent and purest carnauba wax mould release agent providing reproducibility, glossiness, and non-staining, hard releasing film which are important to the fabricator. Creates a durable wax surface that remains intact for multiples pulls. pds Stoner/SPC-Honey Plus Wax® High gloss paste wax for use in open moulding by a composite fabricator that requires a wax mould release agent that can perform in both normal and high exortherm moulding temperatures. Easy to apply and the residual film is durable and resistant to abrasion. Available an economical version for general purpose. pds Stoner/SPC-Honey Plus Wax®100 Pure carnauba paste wax containing no silicones or fillers. It is designed for the composite fabricator who requires a very high quality paste wax mould release agent. It will readily accept PVA without fish-eyeing. Highly recommended when breaking in new moulds or plugs. pds Stoner/SPC-Honey Plus Wax®Liquid Mould release agent specifically formulated for use in the manufacture of reinforced fiberglass products using polyester resins. It removes old wax, styrene build-up, polymerized resin and other surface contaminants while forming a durable wax surface. pds Stoner/SPC-Honey Plus Wax®PCMR-PF4 Liquid release agent specifically formulated for FRP Pipe. This product can be applied by wiping, rolling or via spray equipment. It will not build up on the tool surface like a paste or slurry wax. This allows moulds to be kept in production longer between cleanings, thus saving valuables man-hours. pds
Product name Application PVA Liquid solution of polyvinyl alcohol resin in mixture of water and industrial methylated spirits. Available clear or blue in both glossy and matt versions. They have been developed to give best results if spray applied but glossy versions can also be applied by sponge or soft brush. It can be applied over wax polish but the wax polish must be silicone free. Soluble in water.
Product name Application Product Data Sheet Stoner/SPC-KantStik® Cure Fast 1,0 With ONLY THREE APPLICATIONS COATS will effectively seal the pores on both new and reconditioned tooling also providing multiple releases when fabricating with thermoset resins. pds Stoner/SPC-KantStik® Indicator Release SC Unique semi-permanent releae agent that incorporates a visual indicator that hazes upon application. Provides multiple releases with accurate suface reproduction. It is semi-permanent and non-transferable; therefore, post-processing operations are unaffected by its use. pds Stoner/SPC-KantStik® Release N Is a transparent, amber colour, 100% active, soft gel product which can be further diluted to a spray consistency if desired. Highly effective external mould release agent formulated for flanges, edges, marble hats or other rough surfaces where gloss is not needed. pds Stoner/SPC-KantStik® SPC 1.0 The second generation ” Dry Film Lubrication Technology”, allowing multiple molding/release cycles between applications. Provides easy release with accurate surface reproduction and withstands high moulding temperature conditions in excess of 800ºF without deterioration.
