Axel XTEND AMS

contains: 1 Gallon(3.7L)

Product Description

Proprietary resin solution comprising modified siloxane based polymers which crosslink and form a release film upon evaporation of the solvent carrier.  Semipermanent mold sealer.

Composition Proprietary resin solution in aliphatic solvent blend.

Handling

MOISTURE SENSITIVE. KEEP TIGHTLY SEALED.  CAUTION: Apply at ambient temperature, ideally above 65°F/18°C.  DO NOT APPLY TO HOT MOLDS (OVER 350F/ 177C) Minimize exposure to atmosphere.  Do not return exposed material to can. Store above freezing and below 100ºF / 38ºC. DO NOT DILUTE.

Features

 A wipe-on/wipe-off mold sealer that offers extra mold protection and enhances mold release performance. Especially for new, green, or recently compounded FRP molds.  Also recommended for treating mold repair areas.

Uses Mold sealer for FRP and metal tooling for most thermoset resin systems.  Especially suited for polyester resins, such as: Iso, ortho, DCPD, and PET, as well as vinyl-ester resins.  

Typical Properties Effective Ingredients <3% Color Straw Specific Gravity 0.72 @25ºC Flash Point <73ºF / <23ºC (C.O.C) TBD Shelf Life 12 months in original unopened container Solvents Aliphatic Hydrocarbons Odor Paraffinic

Mold Preparation

Mold surfaces should be clean and free of previously used sacrificial mold releases (like paste waxes, fluoropolymer releases etc.) and other surface

contaminants, like dust, dirt, polishes, over-spray, and residue from polishing or compounding. 

Note:

 AMS sealer is compatible with most semipermanent mold releases, and total stripping of molds is generally not required prior to applying AMS. 

Application  Apply 2 coats of AMS allowing approximately 15-20 minutes between each coat.  Allow a minimum of 30 minutes before applying mold release.  Longer cure times between each coat and after the last coat is desirable, and should be considered when application is made at low temperatures (below 60F/15C) or under cool temperatures with very high humidity.  Good cure is also important when using new molds; molding resin with long cure times; or working over repaired areas.  Air movement is recommended for high humidity environments while the AMS is curing. New Molds, or porous molds (or porous repairs) may require one or more additional coats of mold sealer.

Application Method 1) Apply to ambient temperature molds by wiping with a clean, woven, paper cloth such as the Scott Shop Towels On A Roll, Kimberly-Clark WorkHorse rags or WypAll wipes, or a heavy-duty plain white paper towel. 100%, bleached white, cotton cloths can also be used.

2) Work in patches, applying a smooth, continuous light film over an area approximately 4’-6’ (0.3-0.8m²) square, or a size that you can conveniently wipe before it dries.  A nice wet coat should be applied, but without runs, puddles, or drips.

3) As the sealer starts to flash off (3-15 seconds), use a clean, dry paper cloth, or cotton cloth to wipe the surface to a shine.  This is done in three steps. a) Starting from the outside of the wet out area, and working towards the center, wipe over the area once. Then b) flip the cloth over to a dry side, and then c) wipe over the surface again using a hand waving motion. Firm, strong pressure is not necessary for a streak free, high gloss cosmetic (shine).

Mold Preparation

Mold surfaces should be clean and free of previously used sacrificial mold releases (like paste waxes, fluoropolymer releases etc.) and other surface contaminants, like dust, dirt, polishes, and residue from polishing or compounding. 

Note: XTR sealer is compatible with most semipermanent mold releases, and total stripping of molds is generally not required to apply XTR. 

Application

 Apply 2 coats of XTR allowing approximately 15-20 minutes between each coat.  Allow a minimum of 30 minutes before applying mold release.  Longer cure times between each coat and after the last coat is desirable, and should be considered when application is made at low temperature (below 60F/15C) or under cool temperatures with very high humidity.  Good cure is also important when using new molds; molding resin with long cure times; or working over repaired areas.

2) Work in patches

 

you can conveniently wipe before it dries. DO NOT OVER APPLY. The application should look just evenly wet – no puddles or drips.

3) As the sealer starts to flash off (on average 30 seconds to 1 minute), use a clean, dry paper cloth and wipe across the area using a circular motion and light to medium pressure. The goal is to simply even out the surface, not to totally dry, or polish it. Wait until the remaining sealer is almost dry, approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes, and then polish the area with a soft cotton cloth.

NOTE: The optimum time to polish will be affected by temperature and humidity.  It will be easiest to polish the sealer while it is still slightly wet, however, if your polishing is difficult, or creates more streaks and smudges, you are polishing too soon - simply wait a bit longer and polish again.
