Chem-Trend Mold Release Agent Icon

A broad portfolio of release agents for addressing a variety of composites molding situations

The Chemlease® brand of mold release agents continually evolves as new products and chemistries are relentlessly developed to specifically address the diversity of composites molding applications, processes and challenges.

Chemlease® 2185

Chemlease® 2185 is a unique semi-permanent mold release agent that combines the multiple release capability of a typical semi-permanent product with the application ease of a liquid wax product. 2185 is well suited to the production of high gloss parts from molds that are prepared to a high gloss finish.

Chemlease® 2635W

Chemlease® 2635W is a ready-to-use, environmentally conscious semi-permanent, water-based release agent for both FRP and Advanced Composites molding. It is suitable for all varieties of molding techniques and molding materials. 2635W cures rapidly and provides minimal transfer of release agent. It provides high-temperature stability, high abrasion resistance and is capable of multiple releases.

Chemlease® 41 EZ

Chemlease® 41 EZ is a unique semi-permanent mold release system developed specifically for use where a non-cosmetic finish is required. It is very easy to apply and has both the high heat tolerance and high durability exhibited by typical Chemlease® semi-permanent products.

Chemlease® 41-90 EZ

Chemlease® 41-90 EZ is formulated to provide easy release on parts with low draft angles. Chemlease® 41-90 EZ is the high slip version of Chemlease® 41 EZ and is used for the molding of abrasive or low draft parts, often on “B” sides in closed molds.

Chemlease® 75 EZ

Chemlease® 75 EZ is a unique semi-permanent mold release designed for use in circumstances where pre-release may be a concern. 75 EZ exhibits all the qualities and characteristics of Chemlease® PMR EZ but is formulated to offer less release ease, should this be needed. It performs well in releasing all commonly-known molding resins, including, but not limited to; polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, phenolic, epoxy and BMI.

Chemlease® Flex-Z™ 1.0 – 6.0

An array of six products with a common platform, Flex-Z™ provides flexibility and control in mold release levels to the molder. Formulated to control physical and chemical factors in polyester-molding environments, Flex-Z™ reduces prep time, eliminates sag and delivers predictable release across the performance spectrum from minimum to maximum slip.

Chemlease® IM02

Chemlease® IM02 is an internal release system and lubricant primarily used for non-gel-coated polyester and epoxy resins. When added to polyester resin it reduces the dependency on the external release agent by imparting better flow properties to the polyester resin. Chemlease® IM02 was specifically developed for non-gel-coated parts and the production of U.P. resins by hot and cold processing, vacuum injection and injection molding. In pultrusion applications, Chemlease® IM-02 performs very well as an internal lubricant, offering faster throughput of pultrudate and reduced die wear. Molded parts can generally be painted and bonded without the post cleaning operations usually required when using conventional external release agents.

Chemlease® PMR EZ

Chemlease® PMR EZ is a unique semi-permanent mold release agent developed specifically for use on high quality gloss finish molds. It performs well in releasing all commonly-known molding resins, including, but not limited to; polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, phenolic, epoxy and BMI. PMR EZ is easy to apply and forms an invisible, inert release film on the mold surface that retains or may even slightly enhance the basic high gloss finish of the mold. Chemlease® PMR EZ forms a micro-thin film on the mold surface such that, even with multiple touch-up cycles, the product will not produce any appreciable build-up. The release film is extremely durable and will generate multiple releases, even when molding with the most chemically aggressive resin systems. The release film has very high heat tolerance, known to withstand temperatures in excess of 400°C (750°F).

Chemlease® PMR-90 EZ

Chemlease® PMR-90 EZ is formulated to provide easy release on parts designed with low draft angles. Chemlease® PMR-90 EZ is the high slip version of the Chemlease® PMR EZ and is used for the molding of abrasive or low draft parts, often on “A” sides in closed mold situations. It performs well in releasing all commonly-known molding resins, including, but not limited to; polyester, vinyl ester, DCPD, phenolic, epoxy and BMI.

Chemlease® R&B EZ

Chemlease® R&B EZ is a semi-permanent mold release developed specifically for use in situations where extremely high slip is required. Typically, this will be, but not limited to; applications such as “B” sides in closed molding where greater release ease is required. Chemlease® R&B EZ has both the high heat tolerance and high durability exhibited by typical Chemlease® semi-permanent products.
