We offer a good range of release agents: poly vinyl alchohol, waxe and semi-permanent release agents.
Semi-permanent mould release technology has provided industries with an alternative to the traditional “shop-spray” or high volume, apply-every-cycle release agent.
We have focused on taking the message to our customers that more is not necessarily better when it comes to applying mold release agents. Today’s highly sophisticated water-based or solvent-based semi-permanent mold release agent technologies do more with less:
You can obtain many mold releases between applications
More molding cycles can be attained per working shift due to efficient release ease and the need to apply the release system less frequently
Low product application levels result in a cleaner working environment
Scrap can be significantly reduced
Molds can remain in production for extended periods of time due to the low contribution by the release system itself to in-mold build-up and the extremely high mold protection properties provided
Complicated parts can be made in a trouble-free manner since products with elevated lubricity can be specified where appropriate
Molded parts retain consistently good cosmetic appearance
Molded parts can be post-painted or glued with little or no surface preparation
The relatively small amounts of mold release agents that need to be applied to the mold means that storage space is reduced. Products can be formulated ready-to-use -- making dilution equipment redundant. Overall, our mold release agents represent an added-value proposition that can be tailored to many types of molding applications.

Specific to use in molding of composite and polyurethane materials are Mold Primers or Preparation Pastes. These are an integral part of the Primer/Sealer/Release Agent combination (i.e. "the release system"), and are used to leverage the release agent properties to provide for an even greater number of releases between release agent application, along with easier release and greater part surface qualities.
Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) mould release agent can be wiped, brushed or sprayed on to a wide range of plug and mould surfaces to provide a reliable release barrier for polyester, urethane-acrylate, vinyl ester and epoxy thermosetting resins.
Zyvax® SurfaceCleaner is a combination of solvents especially blended to aid in the preparation of new and used moulds and plugs prior to treatment with Zyvax® Mold Conditioners and Release Agents. It readily removes waxes and other surface contaminants without harming or dulling the working surfaces of the mold.
Chemlease® Mold Cleaner EZ is a special blend of solvents designed to dissolve and remove wax and dirt from composite molds. Ideal for preparing composite mold surfaces for the application of Chemlease® Mold Sealers and Releases. Also excellent for cleaning brushes and equipment.
Zyvax® Flex-Z™ 6.0 Extra Slip Use on difficult-to-release male moulds or as a flange release.Suitable for the manufacture of composite parts on moulds with all kinds of resins: polyester, vinyl ester, urethane-acrylate and epoxy.
Zyvax® Flex-Z™ 5.0 (High Slip) Excellent choice for small parts and high wear areas.Suitable for the manufacture of composite parts on moulds with all kinds of resins: polyester, vinyl ester, urethane-acrylate and epoxy.
Zyvax® Flex-Z™ 4.0 (Medium/High Slip) If you don't know where to start, start here. Suitable for the manufacture of composite parts on moulds with all kinds of resins: polyester, vinyl ester, urethane-acrylate and epoxy.
Zyvax® Flex-Z™ 3.0 (Medium Slip) Standard choice for large hulls and flat areas. Suitable for the manufacture of composite parts on molds with all kinds of resins: polyester, vinyl ester, urethane acrylate and epoxy.
PasteWiz is an easy to apply an polish paste wax release agent with a pleasant fragrance.
PasteWiz products have a place in every composite molding operation and are preferred by many for the simplicity of use.
Especially formulated for easier application to polyester- and epoxy moulds. Highly heat-resistant.Provides outstanding mould protection and easy release of finished parts. Formulated to prevent wax build-up.
Zyvax® WaterClean has been developed to provide an effective, water-based alternative to solvent washing for the removal of surface contaminants from moulds and moulded parts. Zyvax® WaterClean eliminates solvent washing when preparing parts for painting, bonding or other processes that require a completely clean surface.
Mikon® 399 MC is a specially designed surface sealer for porous surfaces to seal them with a high gloss finish. The sealing impresses with its simple application. If handled properly, you neither have to sand nor to polish.
