Effective use of Mold Release in Composites Molding

Mold releases are an important and often overlooked aspect of molding composite components. The mold release has an important effect on the component– from surface quality to ability to paint or bond the components. In addition ineffective mold release can result in damage to the component or the tool.

Aspects considered include the selection of the appropriate mold release, water based and solvent based releases, application of the mold release, cleaning and sealing of the tool. It is also important the mold releases and related products are readily available in appropriate configurations.
