Synlube 1000 formula No. 6312 is a universal silicone based release
agent specifically formulated for the release of both low and high temperature
cured urethanes from metal and plastic molds. It is also suitable for
use in molding epoxies and Viton®.
Synlube 1000 forms a lubricating, heat stable non-carbonizing film that
gives excellent release, surface definition, and mold cleanliness. It
is inert, will not corrode metal or plastic molds and does not give
off noxious odors at elevated temperatures. Synlube 1000 will not decompose
under long exposure to high temperatures 400° F (204° C) associated
with some polyurethane, epoxy, and Viton molding operations. Synlube
1000 is equally suitable for polysulfides, polyesters, and rigid and
flexible molds. It has unusually low surface tension, spreads easily
and rapidly without "fish eyes". Synlube 1000 is cost effective,
produces fewer rejects when properly applied, and will not discolor
light colored stocks.
Aerosol-Note: Always use aerosol and solvent diluted materials in
a well-ventilated area.
Spray lightly and evenly
on clean mold surfaces. Allow the solvent in Synlube 1000 to evaporate
and the surface to air dry for approximately 10 minutes. For quicker
drying times, dry the master or mold surface with warm air. Use sparingly;
too much release agent tends to build up and cover some details on the
master or mold surface. You may wipe off any excess release agent with
lint free paper.
Note: Always use aerosol and solvent diluted materials in a well-ventilated
You can apply Synlube 1000
Bulk by brushing, spraying, wiping, or dipping. For best results apply
Synlube 1000 in a thin, even film.

Storage and Handling
Be sure to read the Material Safety Data Sheet that comes with Synlube
1000 before using. Because Synlube 1000 is supplied in flammable solvents,
containers should not be stored at room temperature. Do not store above

or used near a source of ignition. Use in well-ventilated atmosphere.
Avoid inhaling vapor and excessive contact with the skin.
