Chem-Trend (Howell, MI, US) has launched Zyvax TakeOff, a new water-based, semi-permanent release agent formulated for aerospace manufacturers using vacuum bagging and autoclave molding of epoxy carbon fiber prepreg. TakeOff does not require a sealer in most cases when used on high-quality mold surfaces and is applied by wiping or spraying. TakeOff can be applied to molds at varying temperatures, thus reducing the required down time to allow the mold to cool, as is sometimes needed when using solvent-based release agents. Additionally, Chem-Trend says there is minimal transfer of the release agent to the molded part. That can eliminate or significantly reduce any cleaning required prior to a post-molding procedure such as painting and bonding. For parts that do require cleaning, a mild detergent and water are needed to remove any transferred release material.
