McLube 1779 water based mold release agent requires dilution prior to application. One part McLube to two parts water is a suggested starting point, but it is possible that further dilutions will still furnish excellent release results. Since the product and various dilutions will settle on standing, mixing prior to use, and periodically during use, is required. Surface to be treated should be clean, dry and particularly free of oily residues or other release coatings. The diluted product can be applied by conventional methods such as wiping, brushing or, preferably, spraying. For best results, application should be made to hot surfaces to permit rapid evaporation of water.
Safety and Handling:
The Material Safety Data Sheet should be reviewed before using the product.

Freezing of the product should be avoided, but if freezing occurs, it is possible to restore product uniformity with mechanical agitation.
