Loctite Corp. has introduced two mold releases. Frekote Aqualine R-95 is a water-based, semi-permanent rubber mold release agent capable of releasing all natural and synthetic polymers including some silicone compounds and thermoplastic urethanes. Fast-curing Frekote Aqualine R-95 offers good release properties, and is recommended for difficult molding applications where minimal mold buildup and contaminating transfer are needed, the company said. When properly applied to a preheated surface, this easy-to-use product chemically bonds to the mold surface to form a thin, inert, thermally stable coating. The firm´s other new product is Frekote S-50, a mold release coating aimed at silicone rubber molding applications. The agent requires no cure time at elevated temperatures, and is designed for use in mold temperatures from 220°F to 390°F, at which molding commences as soon as the water carrier evaporates.
