Scott Bader Co. Ltd. (Wellingborough, U.K.) has developed Crystic Mouldguard, a peelable, tough, temporary protective coating for fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and steel molds and composite moldings. It is designed to protect against the detrimental effects of storage or transportation. On decommissioned molds and molded products that are stored outdoors, the company says 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 it will easily peel off prior to mold or part reuse. Two formulations are available in a range of colors: Mouldguard S has been formulated for spray application and Mouldguard B for brush application.
