Extra Large Wood Panel Mold
This mold is HUGE! It gives you the option of making large format wood grain panels for tile, Wall panels, shower panels ect... You can also build a support to make curves and seamless returns. Also you have the option of forming inside this to make make smaller pieces.
Weight: 120# Dimensions: 95.375" X 47.375" X 1"
To make use of this mold multiple times per day look at adding CSA or Trinic Stage II accelerator to your mix design and demold in as little 2 hours. Coloring and accenting is a breeze with Trinic Versa Color and Trinic integral color.
Estimated life span with proper care = 1,000
Suggested mold release = Wax / Poly Ease/ Vaseline and mineral spirits (remove residue and clean mold after use to prevent degradation)
Composition = 74-45 urethane
USING THE MOLD:
Typically, no release agent is necessary when casting plaster or wax in Poly 74-Series molds. For casting plaster: sponge, dip or spray the mold with Pol-Ease® Mold Rinse and then pour plaster on the wet mold to reduce air bubbles in the plaster and aid release.
For casting concrete, use a form release, such as Wax, Pol-Ease® 2300, 2650 or 2601.
Avoid solvent-containing releases since they can cause mold distortion (i.e., shrinkage or swelling).
After repeated casting with certain resins, plaster and concrete, molds may shrink slightly since these materials extract oils from the mold. The proper selection of release agent and/or barrier coat can minimize this effect.
If shrinkage becomes evident, a light application of Pol-Ease® Mold Dressing can help to restore the mold to its original dimensions.
Poly 74-Series molds last many years if stored undistorted on a flat, non-porous surface in a cool, dry location out of direct sunlight. If occasional outdoor use is required, add 0.5% UV Additive to the total mix weight to reduce the characteristic surface degradation caused by sunlight.
Never store Poly 74-Series molds outside as UV exposure will eventually degrade the rubber.
