TR Industries (South Gate, CA, US) is featuring its line of mold releases and related products, including a variety of paste waxes, liquid waxes, polishing compounds and semi- permanent release coatings for traditional fiberglass production and high-performance composites applications. Two recent additions to the TR product line include a liquid polymer wax release and the MULTI-PULL high-slip, semi-permanent release. Also featured is TR-214PC, a liquid sealer and mold release formulated with high-temperature waxes and proprietary polymer technology. This release provides liquid wax ease of application with the added benefits of multiple releases provided by a polymeric resin. Finally, TR-930HS is a versatile low-odor, fast-evaporating, semi-permanent release that provides added slip on more complex molds, especially for those molding with polyester/vinyl ester resins without use of a gelcoat. This release film cures rapidly at room temperature (5-10 minutes) with an application range up to 750°F. Multiple releases for various resins including epoxies, polyesters, thermoplastics, rubber and many other plastics using metal or composite tooling. Application method is wipe or spray, without secondary polishing.
