This is one of the best mold releases available. This is able to be used for hand layup, vacuum bagging, vacuum infusion, RTM, Autoclave etc. This release is the same release we use in our facility to produce our Plates & Veneer Sheets. Based on our experience following the instructions below we find Frekote 700-NC very easy to use, wipe on, wipe off. No buffing required like the waxes. We use this product in conjunction with Frekote FMS Sealer which is used to seal molds. Shelf Life is about nine months.
FREKOTE 700-NC mold release application instructions
Mold Preparation: The mold surface must be clean and free of any release agents or other contaminants for Frekote 700-NC to be completely effective. The FREKOTE 700-NC mold release should be applied over the top of the FREKOTE FMS mold sealer. Only a thin wet film is required. Wipe on a smooth, thin, continuous, wet film (Low lint Paper towel or microfiber is a good application method). Avoid wiping over the same area that was just coated until the solvent has evaporated (Making sure not to miss any areas during the application). It is suggested that small areas be coated working progressively from one side of the mold to the other only working in a few square feet at one time until you are comfortable working with this product. Within seconds of applying the 700 NC, the solvents will evaporate and the applied area should be wiped clean with a lint free microfiber cloth. We recommend doing this in a four step process. 1) Apply the 700 NC in an up and down motion, 2) Apply side to side, 3) Apply at a 45 degree angle, 4) Apply at a -45 degree angle. By doing this it will ensure that any areas missed will be covered in one or more of the four step coating process. When Applying these 4 or more base coats, allow several minutes after each application for complete solvent evaporation (work on another section of the mold in the meantime). The film should be dry and not feel tacky (If the mold feels tacky it’s a sign that you have applied way too much of the product or you are not wiping the mold good enough after the solvents are evaporating. Performance is enhanced by re-coating with one good even coat after the first few de-molding pulls. We highly recommend re-coating at least once after each pull. Maximum releases will be obtained as the mold surface becomes well conditioned to Frekote 700-NC. IF at any time any area becomes flawed, please start over with the FREKOTE FMS mold sealer instructions. Note: Touch-up coats can and should be applied at regular intervals before the base film breaks down, doing this will extend the number of releases obtainable and reduce possible resin attack/build-up. Flammability/ Storage: Frekote 700-NC contains flammable solvents. The product should always be used in well ventilated areas. Store in a cool, dry place. Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
