Proper mold maintenance is critical to ensuring long tool life and consistent part quality performance in composite parts manufacturing. A significant part of any mold maintenance plan includes consistent and well-managed use of mold release systems to ensure good part release and to protect the tooling surface. This webinar will review the manufacturer’s internal mold release systems, as well as semi-permanent external mold release systems, specifically for advanced composite molding.
