PA0864 and PA0868 PA0864 and PA0868 are mold releases designed specifically for releasing thermosetting urethane elastomers from either epoxy or metal tooling in production applications. These releases are specially formulated to provide glossy surface finishes and easy release with minimal buildup on the molds. What makes PA0864 and PA0868 unique is that either release can be removed from the urethane part with soap and water clean up. It is unnecessary to solvent clean or mechanically abrade the molded surface before painting or bonding.

PA0864 and PA0868 contain the same active ingredients in the same amounts. The difference in the products is that PA0864 is made with a high flash point (non-flammable) solvent, to be used on hot molds or where flammable solvents cannot be used. PA0868 is made with Hexane solvent, for fast evaporation and short mold cycles.

Neither product is satisfactory for releasing epoxy parts. These releases have not been tested for releasing urethane foam parts.

 

Antifoam

PA0550 PA0550 is an anti-foaming agent that may be added to epoxies or urethanes to aide in removing mixed-in air during degassing (deairing) procedures. This product acts as a surfactant, lowering the surface tension of the resin, making it easier for air bubbles to grow in volume and release from the mixture. This product will lower the volume of foam expansion during this process. If used in the proper amounts, PA0550 will have no effect on cured mechanical properties.
