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.

DOWNLAND INDUSTRIAL MOULD WAX
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.
