FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Henkel Introduces Frekote® Rel-Eaze™ for Foundry Operations
Sand cores are used in foundry operations to manufacture highly intricate components including engine blocks from molten metals. In the precision sand casting industry, mold release agents are applied to core boxes to allow hardened sand core molds to eject easily from molding presses. Traditional mold release agents produce just two molds before they must be cleaned and reapplied.
Frekote® Rel-Eaze™ is VOC and organic solvent free. It can be applied at room temperature and cures at ambient shop temperatures within 30 seconds. As it is a low viscosity liquid, a thin coating of Frekote® Rel-Eaze™ can be sprayed on using high volume, low pressure spray systems or wiped on with a clean cotton cloth. When touch up is required, molding may continue immediately after the touchup coat is applied.
Frekote® Rel-Eaze™ is available in one gallon cans, five gallon containers and 55 gallon drums. For more information on Frekote® Rel-Eaze™.
