Redelease, a Brazilian distributor of specialty chemicals, has introduced a semi-permanent mold release agent into the Brazilian composites market. Developed by English company Marbocote, Ycon CR8 can reportedly cover, after the application of four layers, from 20 to 25 m2 of surface. ‘This is a better performance than the products currently available in Brazil,’ said Roberto Iacovella, managing partner of Redelease.

‘The Ycon CR8 quickly reacts on the surface of the mold, preparing it for use in a shorter time compared to competing products,’ he added. ‘This faster reaction speed also prevents an operator from being allocated just to remove excess product from the mold, a common practice when other semi-permanent mold release agents are applied.’

The agent is the first product developed by Marbocote exclusively for the Brazilian market. ‘In one year of partnership with Redelease, we have identified many business opportunities in the country,’ said Ian Snowdon, director of Marbocote. ‘That is why we decided to invest in a formulation that would meet the key requirements of local composite manufacturers.’
