MAC 973 Water Based Semi-Permanent Release Agent


MAC-973 is a water based, translucent, milky-white emulsion of a film forming resin that will cure to form a clear, colorless coating designed to release rotational molded parts and materials. It will provide outstanding release, anti-stick and lubricity properties. It will provide a clean, nonoily, chemically inert and thermally stable release film. Excellent release for all types of rotational molded parts where controlled release is important.

Technical Data:

  • Color and appearance................Milky-white emulsion
  • Dispersing medium....................Water
  • Specific gravity..........................1.0
  • Weight per gallon (lbs.)..............8.3

Application Method:

  • MAC-973 should be applied as received to a clean, dry mold surface. No dilution is required. It can be applied to a hot or cold mold surface, but preheating the mold to at least 200º F, will facilitate evaporation of the water and speed up the dry time.
  • Proper application of the release coating is critical to achieve the maximum release-per-application performance attributes. The mold should be cleaned with a suitable solvent or abrasive cleaner to remove previous release coatings and any part material contamination. Application of a thin, even coating over the entire mold surface can be accomplished by wiping with a soft cotton cloth or spraying a fine mist. Allow to dry and apply a second coating on new tools. Coat the entire surface to be treated but do not over-apply. Proceed to mold parts as usual.
  • MAC-973 can be reapplied as needed.

Safety and Handling:

  • The Safety Data Sheet for MAC-973 should be reviewed before using the product.
  • None of the ingredients in MAC-973 are considered hazardous; however, good industrial practice suggests the use of safety glasses and gloves.
  • Product should be protected from freezing. Container should be kept covered to prevent evaporation and eliminate any product contamination.
