About this Webinar
Water-based (WB) mold release agents first appeared in the early 1990s in response to the Montreal Protocol to remove ozone-depleting raw materials. The performance of those early WB products did not match the performance of their solvent-based (SB) counterparts. Issues included mold transfer contamination, having to heat cure the WB release agents, poor cosmetics and limited number of multiple releases. Chem-Trend now has a complete line of WB cleaners, primers, sealers and release agents that have equal performance to their SB offsets, while offering more benefits.
