Aerospace applications are being targeted for Mold Release Coating 7569, a new, water based mould release agent formulated for composite parts now available from Huron Technologies.
This product has been specifically tested and validated for use in holding aerospace components. According to Huron, Release Coating 7569 gives excellent performance in manufacturing aerospace components including external panels and structural components. This release agent works with pre-impregnated epoxy carbon fibre technology used in state of the art aerospace manufacturing, with a smooth, uniform appearance over the entire surface area and low build up on the mould. Release Coating 7569 is a water-thin liquid and can be applied by spraying or wiping.
