Can a mold release agents cause problems in post molding treatments?

In general, post mold treatment of surfaces can be adversely affected by the residual presence of release agents if the release agent is not compatible with such treatment or if it is present in excess on the released part surface. The choice of release agent chemistries compatible with post release operations, the adjustment of the application level onto the mold and the choice for low transferring release agents (like semi-permanent ones) can lead to successful post molding operations and minimize any part contamination issues.
