Release coating. (Materials).

A manufacturer of high performance sport boats reports that they have converted all hull and deck molds to Xtend 802 semi-permanent mold release. Xtend 802 is a reactive resin solution designed to crosslink and cure at ambient temperature, providing a long-lasting release film on the mold surface, according to the company. The HAPS-free (hazardous air polluting substances), quick drying, solvent-based mold release is said to be easily wiped on the mold surface and requires no polishing to achieve the high gloss that boat builders demand. Xtend 802 can be applied directly to FRP molds, or an optional mold sealer can be used for green or recently compounded molds. (Axel Plastics Research Laboratories, P.O.
