TR-108 Release Wax - For fibreglass application, specially formulated to provide the maximum number of releases per application. A versatile high carnauba content mold release paste wax with excellent sealing properties for composite molding applications.
High carnauba wax content producing hard high gloss film – excellent for breaking in new molds
Non-silicone - good tape adhesion for use where masking is required
Effective in preventing/reducing pre-release on large tools, plugs & heavy laminates
Excellent at eliminating troublesome gel coat fisheyes
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES: Dry Time: 5-10 minutes @ 720 F. Will vary depending on working temperature.
Wax Melting or Softening Point: 185 deg F
As a release agent for composite molding on all FRP tooling, metal and other hard surface molds.
Open mold hand or spray lay up
Resin Transfer/injection (RTM) & (RIM)
Vacuum bag and compression molding
Polyester & epoxy resins
APPLICATION: Apply TR-108 with sponge applicator in thin even circular motion to the mold or pattern surface working in small 3’ x 3’ overlapping sections. Polish wipe applied wax while still slightly soft or wet to gloss finish frequently rotating cloth (do not allow wax to set). For new or reconditioned molds apply a minimum of 6 coats of paste wax, waiting approx. 30-60 minutes between applications for the wax to harden after the polish wipe. Best results obtained if after application mold is allowed to stand overnight and a subsequent final coat of wax release applied following day prior to gel coating. Follow with a coat of wax for the first 2-3 parts released. Then determine how many parts can be effectively produced before re-waxing is required. This will vary depending on molding condition, configuration, resin, mold cycles, effective cure of production gel coat and other factors.
Clean all brushes, rollers and fibreglass tools with Acetone.
Always wear gloves and dust masks and avoid breathing vapours of resin or dust residue.
