Scott Bader Co. Ltd. (Wellingborough, U.K.) has developed Crystic Mouldguard, a peelable, tough, temporary protective coating for fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) molds and moldings. It is designed to protect against the detrimental effects of storage (or transportation) during periods of nonuse. Steel molds also can be similarly protected against rusting and damage. If decommissioned molds and molded products are stored outdoors, the company says that application of the coating to 0.5-mm to 0.6-mm (~0.2-inch) thickness will prevent damage from exposure to UV light, frost, standing water and dirt as well as general damage and surface scratches for up to 12 months without intermediate treatments, yet will easily peel off prior to mold or part reuse. Two formulations are available in a range of colors: One, Mouldguard S, is designed for sprayup applications while the other, Mouldguard B is intended for use in brush applications.
