MAC-968 is intended to be applied as received to clean, dry surfaces. All previously used release products and any compound residue should be removed by an appropriate method. McLube Mold Cleaner May be used. Application can be accomplished by spraying a thin, even film over the entire surface to be treated and allowing to dry. To assure complete coverage, apply a second coating. Maximum durability of the coating is obtained by curing at 300ºF for three minutes. Higher temperatures provide a corresponding decrease in cure time. Proceed to mold as usual. MAC-968 will provide superior release performance for a number of parts.
Reapplication can be accomplished by applying only one coating as needed.
