800 Semi-Permanent Release
XTEND 800 is a reactive resin
formulated to crosslink and cure on the mold surface,
offering superior durability and extended release performance.
It is a one component mold release which requires no primer.
To assure maximum adhesion to the mold surface, please
follow the application instructions carefully.
Fiberglass Molds or Metal Molds
Thoroughly clean molds using one, or more, of the following
Stripper to remove semi-permanent coatings.
To maintain and prep mold surfaces already coated with
a semi-permanent coating where stripping is not desired
(i.e. to remove excess application of XTEND 800, molding
residue or shop dirt before touch up, or to prep molds
already coated with a semi-permanent release).
Stripper to remove waxes, polymers and polymerized wax-styrene
Apply cleaner or strippers more than once if necessary.
Always use a 100% cotton cloth or a stiff natural bristle
brush (Rugged Charlie Brush).
Test mold cleanliness with masking tape. If tape adheres
very well, the mold is clean.
Wash mold well with water to remove compounding
residue dust and dry with a soft cotton cloth.
Wipe mold with a wet coat of CW-80. Allow to dry.
New and green molds can vary in their release characteristics.
Many manufacturers assist mold break-in and release
by using PVA. AXEL's S-19 Sealer, applied before XTEND
800, may also be useful for breaking-in new molds.
Aluminum and Plated Tools
Although optional, aluminum and plated tools may
benefit from an application of AXEL's S-19 sealer before
application of XTEND 800.
Saturate a clean 100% cotton cloth with release. Cloth
should be wet but not dripping.
Working in small areas wipe on a smooth wet film.
Do not over apply. Wait 20-30 seconds and then lightly
wipe off excess with a clean cotton cloth. Do not rub.
Continue application until the entire surface has been
coated. Overlap slightly.
Apply 3-6 coats of release allowing approximately 15
minutes between each coat for drying.
Allow the release to cure for a minimum of 15-20 minutes
at room temperature (70°F/21°C) before molding.
Apply one coat of release after the first and third
releases. This will extend productivity. If the part
is pulling easily, continue molding.
Wipe on touch up coats of XTEND 800 as needed.
If necessary, use CW-80 to remove shop dust or molding
Light applications of CW-80 can also be used to remove
excess application of XTEND 800.
In the event that molds need to be repaired or re-worked,
CW-200HS Stripper may be used to remove XTEND 800.
