Application Method:

    Surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and dried before applying McLube 1700L. All traces of prior release agents should be removed by washing with an appropiate solvent. McLube Mold Cleaner may be used. McLube 1700L is intended for use as supplied. Since the product is a dispersion of solid particles, agitation is required prior to, and periodically during use. Any conventional application method can be used for the product - spraying, dipping, wiping or brushing. A thin, even coating should be applied, and after the solvent has evaporated, a second coat is recommended. The double coating is suggested for start-up on a clean surface. For the first few cycles, a single coat of McLube 1700L is recommended for each cycle. Once the mold is conditioned, several cycles per application should be obtainable, and the mold surface should stay cleaner longer.
