Semi Permanent Release Agents

Semi Permanent Release Agent

Semi Permanent Release Agents

RF Composites carries a range of semi-permanent release agents for the FRP composites market.  These products come from world leaders in the area of release systems.

Semi permanents have many advantages including no sag, no residual surface issues for post painted parts.  All this whilst enabling easy application and mult pull of parts.

Zyvax Sealer GP Zyvax Z1 - Z6 releases Chemlease® One FS EZ Zyvax Surface Cleaner
Description Sealer GP is a high modulus, clear, flexible film with superior substrate adhesion that forms a protective shield on the mold surface. Flex-Z®is an industry breakthrough-a variable release system that gives total control to the molder. Chemlease® One FS EZ is a HAP’s-free* solvent-based semi-permanent release for the composites industry which affords easy application in one step. Surface Cleaner is a combination of solvents specially blended to aid in the preparation of new and used moulds ® and plugs prior to treatment with ZyvaxMoldConditioners and Release Agents.
Technical Data Sheet
Overview As a conditioner, Sealer GP is designed to treat both the chemical and physical bonding sites found on every “raw” mold surface. In addition,Sealer GP provides the base needed to extend the life of the release coating and will allow optimal performance from the release coating. An array of six products with a common platform, Flex-Z® provides flexibility in mold release levels that is an absolute requirement. Formulated to control physical and chemical factors in polyester-molding environments, Flex-Z® reduces prep-time, eliminates sag and delivers predictable release across the performance spectrum from minimum to maximum slip. This single step release agent is suitable for a complete range of polyester systems from small simple moldings to large complicated ones. Zyvax surface cleaner readily removes waxes and other surface contaminants without harming or dulling the working surfaces of the mold. Therefore preparing the surface for the application of Zyvax Sealer GP.
Benefits Retains mold detail and finish • Thermal Stability: 480 ºC • Restores vacuum integrity • Can be used with all release agents •LowOdor •Thermal stability:480°C(900°F) •Excellent tape adhesion •Fast,easy and versatile application •Adjustable slip-coat for pre-release control •Prevents styrene buildup The benefits are manifold, from a one part system, through fast turn around mold application by Wipe-ON or Spray-On process. One FS EZ will allow multiple releases Zyvax Surface Cleaner can be used to remove all release agents, leaving no residue. The application is very easy to use, with fast drying of the mould surface.
Use Sealer GP overcomes micro-porosity in mold surfaces,eliminates the break-in time for new molds, restores a uniform surface when used over a mold repair or patch,protects the surface of the mold from styrene emission and oxidation, therefore extending the useful life of the mold. Flex Z 1.0 has the lowest slip factor for applications such as tape lines, to Z 6.0 for the highest slip factor difficult to release molds. Whatever the last coat is will be the surface release level. This enable different release for different areas on the same mold. The most common used products are Z 3.0 & Z 4.0.
