Chem-Trend Announces New Efficiency Enhancing HAPs Free Release Agent

December 08, 2010

Popular Chemlease® One FS for Composite Industries, now available in "EZ Variant".

Chem-Trend, a global manufacturer of process chemical specialties with focus on release agent solutions for a variety of manufacturing industries, announced today that it has enhanced the Chemlease® brand of products. The new EZ variant provides the same trusted performance as the traditional One FS for the composite industry, but with many new improvements. Chemlease® One FS EZ is a semi-permanent release agent for high gloss applications that significantly increases production potential due to its ease of application. Additionally, the product is HAPs free, and has a lower odor level than competitive products which contributes to a more environmentally friendly working environment.

The new semi-permanent release agent is designed for use in the tub / shower, marine, transportation and general fiberglass applications where high gloss finishes are required. Its primary advantage is its ability to be applied quickly, with minimal additional mold surface preparation required to deliver a streak-free or smear-free finished surface. This, along with its durability, is a major advantage to manufacturers that results in significantly less time spent in mold preparation while producing a high quality product devoid of imperfections. Once applied, operators merely allow the coating to dry and cure before beginning production. Additionally, the HAPs free formulation fits with the industry’s present-day environmentally friendly expectations.

HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutants) are denied under the United States Clean Air Act of 1990 and are designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
