Summary:

The difference between 2 common Mold Release Agents :

 

1. The raw materials of water-based mold release agent and oil-based mold release agent are different.

 

2. The use methods of water-based mold release agent and oil-based mold release agent are different. When the water-based mold release agent is used, it must be mixed with water in a certain proportion and then painted. The oil-based mold release agent must be mixed with dichloromethane, petroleum ether, 120# gasoline, etc. Mixed use of solvents.

 

3. The water-based mold release agent has high requirements on the mold temperature and needs to quickly evaporate the internal water, but the water-based mold release agent has a good operating environment, low odor, and little pollution.

 

4. The oily release agent volatilizes quickly and does not need to increase the temperature of the mold to evaporate, but there are many residues, it is not easy to clean, the smell is large, and the cost is high, and there are potential safety hazards.
