When you mold composite parts, you may face issues such as sticking parts, styrene monomer build-up, and inconsistent surface finishes. These problems can lead to the production of inferior parts, requiring total scrapping and restarting. Eliminate these difficulties using the composite solutions produced by Stoner Molding Solutions.
With more than 80 years of experience in the mold release industry, Stoner Molding Solutions is here to help you find the right combination of releases, sealers, cleaners, rust preventives, and lubricants to maximize your production and increase your profits.
The composite industry produces various products, from massive wind turbines that power the future to boat hulls and automotive parts made from space-age materials like carbon fiber. But getting these products to market requires refined production processes that increase efficiency, reduce waste, and produce superior parts.
The composite solutions for your unique molding process may vary depending on the composite materials you’re molding. With a wide range of high-quality molding products, designers and engineers like you will be able to find the right molding products to optimize your production. Unsure which one is right for you? Just get in touch with us today for expert advice!
As a world leader in composite solutions, our mold release agents are second to none. Stoner Molding Solutions offers water and solvent-based mold releases in semi-permanent and sacrificial release systems. We also have an extensive line of paste wax mold release, such as Honey Wax® and Miracle Gloss® M8.
With the right mold release for your carbon fiber fabric, sheet metal compounding (SMC), filament winding, or another type of composite molding, you can release more parts in less time while decreasing buildup and improving part appearance.
The key to an efficient and defect-free finished composite part is to start with a clean mold. Our cleaning solutions can help you effectively remove oil, grease, wax, and buildup from your mold surfaces, brushes, and equipment. It can also decrease the time you need to clean the molds between cycles, helping to improve your productivity.
By properly preparing the mold surface before applying mold release, the mold release agent can properly bond to the mold surface, improving its performance. Try our KantStik line of mold cleaners and releases for an exceptional combination.
If you ever pulled a mold out of storage or received a mold from a manufacturer and found rust on its surface, you know how challenging it can be to get rid of it. Your mold surface needs to be completely clean and corrosion-free before being used.
But if you treat your molds with our rust preventatives, you can eliminate the time-consuming step of removing rust before production. We offer short-term (overnight or weekend), medium-term (six months), and long-term (1 year+) rust prevention solutions. Many of these products also work off during the first production cycle, so there’s no start-up cleaning needed.
Your composite molding surface isn’t the only part of your molding operation that needs some assistance. When opening or closing the mold, your molding machine may squeak and make a noise or stick. Lubricants from Stoner Molding Solutions can solve these problems and more!
Not only do they prevent sticking, binding, and squeaks, but they also help reduce friction and wear, extending the life of your molding machine. We have food-grade lubricants and penetrating lubricants to get between close-tolerance points to loosen rust, corrosion, dirt, and scale quickly.
We know that all these words sound promising—almost too good to be true. Almost. But here at Stoner Molding, we are so confident that our composite solutions will work for you, that we are willing to offer you a free sample to try. Once you see how fantastic our products work to improve your molding process, you’ll only regret not giving us a try sooner.
Stoner Molding Solutions offers both semi-permanent and conventional external release systems designed to:
Stoner makes a mold sealer and releases for every type of composite molding process, including RTM, infusion, casting, filament winding, compression, carbon fiber molds, hand lay-up, SMC, and vacuum bagging with polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy, and pre-preg materials. No matter what type of composite molding you do, using our products will benefit your operation. Here’s how:
When you have sticking issues that compromise the finished part's appearance, you need composite solutions to eliminate these issues. A combination of mold cleaner, sealer, and release agent can optimize your production cycles and decrease your defective parts.
An inconsistent surface finish may affect the function of the product you’re molding, especially for high-value clients like the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard. Don’t compromise your composite mold results with inferior molding products. Instead, choose Stoner’s composite solutions for a consistent surface finish.
We know that time is money, so we make our mold release agents, cleaners, and corrosion-resistance products easy to apply. Some can be simply sprayed, while others require a quick wipe down of the product. Either way, you’re saving time by using products that are easy to apply.
