AXEL Plastics (Monroe, Conn., U.S.) specializes in the manufacture of a full line of mold release products for composites manufacturing, including mold cleaners, primers, sealers and internal and external mold releases. In this Digital Demo, the company emphasizes the efficiencies and cost savings possible with its systems-based approach to mold care. AXEL’s XTEND brand is a line of water- and solvent-based cleaners, primers for mold surface leveling and glossing, semi-permanent sealers, and external mold releases. The company’s MoldWiz line of internal mold release agents is designed to work with thermoset or thermoplastic resins and is suitable for closed mold and pultrusion applications.
