Universally applicable liquid external release agent, solvent-based and with short drying times.
- Heat resistant up to 140 °C
- Multi purpose-product
- Semi-permanent: multiple releases per application
- Raise mould temperature to increase slip effect
- Silicone-free formulation
- Short drying time
- Renders time-consuming wax and polishing cycles unnecessary
The use of this product eliminates the need for a repeated time-consuming waxing and polishing, as a single application allows, after some starting time that demands frequent treatment of the mould, several demouldings.
Release agent Semiperm™ Monofilm forms a monomolecular film that adheres to the mould and does not show any affinity to the moulded parts.
Release agent Semiperm™ Monofilm is silicone-free and suited for the purpose of processing of thermosets like polyester (cold and hot moulding), epoxy and phenolic resins. In particular when the processing takes place at elevated temperatures (> 50 °C), flawless results are obtained.
Prior to the first application of release agent Semiperm™ Monofilm, the moulds have to be cleaned thoroughly from residues of dirt and former release agent. The next step is to apply release agent Semiperm™ Monofilm as an even, thin film and allow it to dry. The application can be done either by spraying, wiping or brushing. After a short flash-off time of 1-2 minutes the mould surface can be polished with a lint-free cotton cloth to a high gloss finish. Repeat this procedure 4-5 times at new moulds. Before starting the production, ensure that the film is absolutely dry. Release agent Semiperm® Monofilm should be stirred up or shaken prior to use.
If used in the processing of prepregs, we highly recommend to do preliminary testing, due to the often high pressure used there is a risk that the release agent is going to be damaged mechanically. Thus, the demoulding can be made difficult or even impossible. The same applies to press-moulded parts (mould and counter mould), when processed with high pressure.
