Mould Release Wax
Our mould release range includes wax, PVA release agents and tooling gel. Each of these options has a different purpose and is ideal for different applications – if you are not sure which one will suit your project the best, drop into Ace Fibreglass Supplies or give us a call on 07 5493 9974. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always happy to answer your questions and provide advice.
MoldWax is a great option if you are looking for a mould release agent – to use it you start by wetting the wax and applying it in a circular motion using an applicator. Once it has dried you then polish it off with a soft rag – it is important that all wax is polished from the mould as the pre-release will be a problem if there is extra wax left behind. Also, ensure that you always polish with a soft rag and not a high-speed buffer, as this will cause further problems.
PVA Release Agents
Our PVA Mould Release Agent comes in a liquid form and is applied by cloth, brush or spray gun for fast application. This product is water soluble, easy to clean off and is ideal for one-off jobs or when ‘braking in’ a new mould.
Please note that care must be taken when using this product – not using enough product will cause the mould and laminations to bond, while using too much product will cause imperfections such as ‘gatoring’ (impressions of alligator hide) of the gel-coat.
Tooling gel is the paint that goes inside the mould; it is a much stronger paint then your standard gel coat or flow coat so that when you are taking the mould off it doesn’t come off.
