M 8711 Paste Wax
M 8711 fulfills all the functions of MO 811 wax when used in a higher temperature environment.
When temperatures of over 45°C are likely to be experienced on the mould surface - for example due to the exotherm during cold press moulding - this wax should be used.

Release Agents

The following release agents (nos. 1-4) are high class products designed specifically for use in the GRP industry.
They may all (except No. 4) be applied by wiping on with a lint free cloth, but the best and most economical results will always be obtained by application with a low output low pressure spray gun.
It is essential to apply No. 4 release agent by spray to obtain the matt finish.
Mould Release Universal Agent No 1 A rapid drying molecular type release agent with excellent release properties. Suitable for polyester or epoxy mouldings even from an irregular surface, and particularly suitable for moulding from plaster as it is waterproof.

Non-flammable Mould Release Agent No. 1 gives a very positive release system, if you have a problem with an unusual material or product it will almost certainly resolve it.
Supplied in 5kg and 25kg cans.

Order ref. AAO 17255

A hard carnauba wax polish with excellent release properties for a good commercial finish. It is the ideal wax to use in conjunction with PVA release agents as it does not cause the "run-off" effect often noticed when PVA is applied to the more sophisticated modern waxes. It is also widely used to fill and mask the joins in split moulds.

Method of Application
The mould surface should be thoroughly cleaned. Kantstik Mould Cleaner is ideal for this purpose.
Apply Kantstik Cure Fast by wiping the mould surface with a cotton cloth or spraying making sure of complete uniform coverage of no more than a few square feet at a time. Avoid over application.
Wait approximately 15 seconds after applying and while the film is still wet, wipe with a clean dry cotton cloth. Repeat until entire mould surface is covered. Apply three to five coats. No cure time between coats is required. Wait approximately 20 to 40 minutes for final curing before moulding.
