REXCO (Conyers, Georgia) is emphasizing its lineup of PARTALL, FORMULA FIVE and MARBALEASE brand mold release agents designed primarily for thermoset composites. REXCO focuses on effective, economical release agents that are suitable for creation of production plugs and finished parts. Featured products are PARTALL Film #10 polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) barrier coating and PARTALL Paste #2 paste mold release wax, both staples of the composites industry since 1953. PARTALL Paste #2 is designed as a stand-alone release agent that can also be employed as a flange/edge/hat wax. PARTALL Film #10 is recommended in conjunction with PARTALL Paste #2 on new or reconditioned molds as extra protection against sticking.
