Loctite® Frekote® Aqualine® R-550 offers excellent release and slip properties and is recommended for the most difficult molding applications, especially for high aspect ratio parts. 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 polymers.
Aqualine R-550 should be spray applied to molds preheated to a minimum of 60°C (140°F) and is suitable for application to molds up to 204°C (400°F).
Apply R-550 using a finely atomized fan pattern. Regulate gun output to 2-3 fluid oz/minute for molds heated to 60ºC – 150ºC (140ºF-300°F) or 4-5 fluid oz/minute for molds above 150ºC (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 150°C (300°F), Aqualine R-550 dries instantly and requires only four minutes to fully cure.
