Application Data

Dilute Michem® Release Agent 4003 with water in accordance with predetermined levels necessary to provide release. Typically, a trial starting dilution of 10 parts water to 1 part release is a good reference. Optimized dilutions can be seen as high as 40:1 to 50:1 when fully integrated. Apply via hydraulic or atomized spray ensuring an even light coat to the mold cavity. Reapply after each molded part.


Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
