Henkel Corp. (Rocky Hill, Conn.) has introduced Frekote Aqualine RS-100T, a water-based sealer designed to seal microporosity in steel and chrome-plated molds. The clear liquid provides a base coat and significantly increases mold release effectiveness. Formulated for high thermal stability, the sealer reportedly withstands temperatures as high as 698°F/370°C. The product can be applied to mold surfaces at temperatures between 199°F and 401°F (93°C and 205°C), and it cures in 15 to 20 minutes.
