Redelease launches high-performance semi-permanent mold release agent

Redelease, a traditional distributor of specialty chemicals, has just introduced in the Brazilian composites market the semi-permanent mold release agent Ycon CR8. Developed by the English company Marbocote, an European leader in mold release technologies, the Ycon CR8 is characterized by its excellent performance and ease of application. 

“The Ycon CR8 quickly reacts on the surface of the mold, preparing it for use in a shorter time compared to competing products. This faster reaction speed also prevents an operator from being allocated just to remove excess product from the mold, a common practice when other semi-permanent mold release agents are applied,” said Roberto Iacovella, managing partner of Redelease.

According to Iacovella, tests conducted in England proved that one liter of Ycon CR8 can cover, after the application of four layers, from 20 to 25 square meters of surface. “This is a better performance than the products currently available in Brazil.”

The semi-permanent mold release agent Ycon CR8 is the first product developed by Marbocote exclusively for the Brazilian market. “In one year of partnership with Redelease, we have identified many business opportunities in the country. That is why we decided to invest in a formulation that would meet the key requirements of local composite manufacturers,” said Ian Snowdon, director of Marbocote.

Redelease introduced the concept of semi-permanent mold release of composite parts in Brazil back in 1997. Unlike the traditional carnauba wax, which demands a new coat at each release, the semi-permanent agents ensure multiple mold releases. This characteristic increases the production pace and considerably reduces damages to the mold.
