Aqualine R-150


MANUFACTURER

Henkel-Frekote


DESCRIPTION

Loctite® Frekote® Aqualine® R-150 offers excellent release and slip properties and is recommended for the most demanding molding applications, especially for highly abrasive compounds. When properly applied to a preheated surface, this water based product chemically bonds to the mold surface to form a thin, inert, thermally stable coating capable of releasing all natural and synthetic rubber compounds as well as thermoplastic urethanes and some solid polyurethane cast elastomers.


APPLICATION

Apply Aqualine R-150 to molds preheated to a minimum of 60°C (140°F). Application of Aqualine R-150 is suitable for application up to 204°C (400°F).
Apply Aqualine R-150 using a finely atomized fan pattern. Regulate gun output to 2-3 fl. oz./minute for molds heated to 60ºC – 149ºC (140ºF – 300°F) or 4-5 fl. oz./minute for molds above 149ºC (300°F).
At 60°C (140°F), the release agent will dry in a few seconds and will be fully cured after 25 minutes. At 93°C (200°F), this cure time is reduced to 10 minutes. At 149°C (300°F), Aqualine R-150 dries instantly and requires only four minutes to fully cure
(see cure curve).
