Loctite Frekote 700-NC is a clear, solvent based polymer release agent that offers a high gloss finish, no mold build-up, and a room temperature curing system. This material releases polyester resins, epoxies, rubber compounds, thermoplastics, and most other molded polymers.
What is frekote?
Frekote, a Henkel Loctite brand, are solvent-based mold release agents that are used for composite/FRP molding applications. Semi-permanent mold release agents chemically bond to the mold surface without leaving residue on your parts.
How do you use frekote 700 in NC?
Frekote 700-NC can be applied to mold surfaces at room temperature up to 135°C (275°F) by spraying, brushing or wiping with a clean lint-free, cloth. When spraying, ensure a dry air source is used or use an airless spray system When gel coats are used, a wipe-on-wipe-off method of application is recommended.
How do you use frekote?
Apply to clean mold surfaces by spraying, brushing or wiping with a clean, lint-free, cotton cloth. Apply up to 4 coats, allowing 5 to 10 minutes between coats. Touch up as necessary. Frekote® Exitt™ provides a superior high gloss finish on molds.
What is a mold release?
A release agent (also mold release agent, release coating, or mold release coating) is a chemical used to prevent other materials from bonding to surfaces. Without such a barrier in place, the substrate would become fused to the mold surface, resulting in difficult clean-up and dramatic loss in production efficiency.
What is a good release agent for epoxy?
We highly recommend you use Stoner’s release spray, as it offers you all the required properties to ensure that you can release a casting from epoxy resin. If you are working with silicone, however, we recommend you rather use a release petroleum jelly or a release wax.
What is silicone mold release spray?
The silicone spray produces a dry anti-stick surface coating, which is particularly suited as a model spray prior to vacuum forming mouthguard or other thermoplastic materials. Available in an 11 oz. spray can.
What can I use instead of mold release?
Are there alternative Mold Release Agents? You can use common materials like vegetable oil, mineral oil, cooking spray or petroleum jelly. This is a much cheaper way than commercial mold release agents.
Can I use Vaseline as a release agent?
Petroleum jelly can be used to release silicone from silicone, but it should be thinned with mineral spirits so that it can be applied in a thin layer with minimal visible brush strokes.
How do you keep epoxy from sticking to mold?
The most simple fix is to cover your work bench with 3 mil or heavier plastic sheeting. It’s inexpensive and tear-resistant, can be taped to the work surface and cured epoxy will peel off it. Other even cheaper options include cutting open a garbage bag or plastic storage bag.
Can I use silicone spray as a mold release?
Perfect For Many Projects, High Silicone Content & Specially Formulated. Mold release spray is an excellent choice for almost any project that involves molding material. This spray is easy to use, features high quality ingredients, & leaves you with a great product and intact molds.
What is frekote 44-nc?
Specially formulated release system for cast polymer and highly porous tools. A hot mold touch up version of Frekote 44-NC is formulated for use on molds with temperatures above 60°C (140°F). A unique release interface specifically formulated for reinforced polyester gel coats (and other associated resin systems).
Why choose frekote® multiple release?
Other manufacturers rely on Frekote’s® superior multiple release performance. Frekote® semi-permanent release agents are non-silicone materials which bond to tooling surfaces. They do not migrate or contaminate parts, machines or the work environment. Provides molders with no release agent transfer (when applied as directed).
What is frekote semi permanent release?
Frekote® semi-permanent release agents are non-silicone materials which bond to tooling surfaces. They do not migrate or contaminate parts, machines or the work environment. Provides molders with no release agent transfer (when applied as directed). The multiple release formula gives parts a matte finish.
