The semi-permanent release is suitable for many processes including hand lamination, infusion, and RTM.

Other featured products at the expo will include XTEND WHS, a special water-based treatment for mould flanges and edges, and XTEND WCX, a 100% water-based cleaner. These products join AXEL’s wind blade release system designed for epoxy infusion: WS-50, mould sealer, and W-7838D matte finish mould release. All of the products in AXEL’s wind blade release system are 100 % water-based, non-flammable and odourless.

AXEL will also exhibit XTEND solvent –based mould releases for LFI and PU RIM and a vast selection of, resin and process specific, MoldWiz internal mould releases.
