Trelleborg’s offshore operation has launched a brand new releasing agent, the ER950, which has been specially formulated to work with its entire range of epoxy tooling board products. The agent will be available to view on stand B19 stand, hall 7.3, at JEC Europe 2015 in Paris.
The easily applied solution ensures a superior finish and allows Trelleborg to offer a complete suite of products for tool and mold manufacture. As such, customers can now order all tooling board, sealing pastes and release agents from a single manufacturer.
Chris Mellings, Business Group Manager for Trelleborg’s Advanced Engineering Materials (AEM) operation, says: “When someone wants to produce a composite component they need a specific tool. We mold their desired shape from our epoxy tooling block but the inherent nature of the block makes it porous, and so it must be sealed to stop any ingress. The seal isn’t inherently a release surface, meaning that an additional release agent is required.
