Thermoplastics / Rotational Molding

The following products represent those that are most commonly used in rotational molding. These releases are suitable for use with fabricated and cast aluminum and steel molds and plated metal surfaces. Solvent-based mold releases are generally preferable for cast iron molds.

Please note, AXEL can provide other types of internal mold release for resins other than polyolefins. If you are rotationally molding nylon or other types of resin, please contact us for a recommendation.
