New water-based mould release

Honey Wax Hydro Speed is a water-based mould release for hand lay-up composites manufacturing. © Stoner Molding SolutionsStoner Molding Solutions, of Quarryville, Philadelphia, is introducing Honey Wax Hydro Speed as a water-based mould release for hand lay-up composites manufacturing that is non-flammable and non-hazardous.

The high-solids product eliminates the need to continually re-saturate an applicator with traditional paste waxes which will save composites moulders time, while the water carrier evaporates in 30-60 seconds, even at low ambient temperatures.

Honey Wax Hydro Speed is the first product of its kind that completely eliminates solvents while maintaining the performance expected from paste waxes. Removal of the product has also been made easier because as a water-based product it is applied in a much lighter, thinner film.

“In field tests we have seen up to a 50% time savings over paste waxes,” says Win Doolittle, Stoner Molding global product manager. “Mould operators can completely saturate their applicator and coat a much larger area before stopping. In addition to the application speed, Honey Wax Hydro Speed requires significantly less effort to buff after drying, and the marine industry loves the fact that pin striping tapes easily stick to the newly coated mould.”

Honey Wax Hydro Speed is available in a 16oz squeeze bottle, and gallons. No mould preparation is required to test, use or switch and being water-based, it has no hazard classification, which allows it to be shipped faster and at less cost.
