XTEND W-78361 and W-7836 are two new water-based semi-permanent mould releases from AXEL Plastics Research Laboratories, represented by Fibreglass Material Services .
W-7836 series mould releases are Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPS) free, non-flammable and odour-free. They are capable of extended performance from composite tooling surfaces, including epoxy.
The mould releases offer composite moulders consistent, easy release of parts in either matte or gloss finish.
The W-7836 series matte finish parts are suitable for epoxy wind turbine blade production. Wind turbine manufacturers can achieve up to 50% higher production rates on uniform matte finish parts by using XTEND W-7836D in the moulding process compared with standard mould releases. Gloss parts are suitable for polyester gel coated applications.
XTEND W-7836 series mould releases are aqueous emulsions that can be sprayed or wiped on FRP, epoxy or metal moulds. AXEL also offers a mould primer/sealer (XTEND WS-36) that can be applied prior to two coats of the mould release.
