Ease Release® 400

Ease Release 400 is a highly efficient release agent designed to release polyurethane elastomers, Thiokol rubbers, EPDM and other synthetic elastomers from aluminum, chrome, epoxy, polyester, rubber and steel molds.

Features

Ease Release 400 is easy to apply, fast drying and effective over a broad temperature range from 70F to 500F.

Ease Release 400 provides excellent release and surface finish to molded parts. Ease Release 400 also provides multiple release in many instances. Precise duplication of mold detail and dimension with minimum mold maintenance and down time resulting in greater productivity.

CAUTION

Finished parts must be abraded prior to any post mold finishing such as bonding or painting.

Application

  1. Thoroughly clean your mold with Mold Cleaner 2508 or any suitable cleaner to remove all traces of previous coating and oils.
  2. Apply Ease Release 400 using aerosol spray for bulk grades. Hold the can or spray gun 6 to 8 inches from the mold surface to ensure a light even coating. When the molds are new or have been blasted with an abrasive, “season” the mold by applying a heavy coating of release. Heat the mold to process temperature, then wipe the excess with a rag and reapply a light coating of Ease Release 400 before regular molding.
  3. Ease Release 400 is fast drying and requires no baking during the normal molding process.
  4. Reapply a light coating before each molding.

Finishing

Thorough cleaning of molded parts is required prior to staining, painting or bonding. For suggested cleaning procedures, consult your Mann technical representative.
