What kind of situations would call for the Mold Release line of products?

If you think about it most anything you’re going to put in a mold will be very sticky. Then it will harden into a solid part. Basically it’s just like glue, goes in sticky and then sets up hard and fast.
The difference is that, unlike glue, now you want it to let go, which is the last thing it wants to do because it’s just like glue.
By coating the inside of the mold with something very inert and slippery that the goop won’t stick too, like say maybe, wax, you’ll be able to pull the part out.
The original customers were fiberglass boat makers.

Yeah, you would actualuy have to be making/manufacturing some sort of fiberglass, or maybe plastic product.
It isnt for detailers.

Hahaha, wow I had the wrong idea of what it could be used for.
I was thinking about situations where moss or algea (etc) begins to form on the finish of a car! Haha!

Come to think of it, I’ve accidentally closed up plastic bags with used pads in them before. Next time I went to grab them I needed some “mold release”. :D

There was a car that my girlfriend's mom bought around a year and a half ago for $400. The car had been parked underneath a tree for several years, and had some serious "mold" issues. When cleaning the hood, i realized that about a quarter of an inch of the hood's thickness was dirt/mold/algea whathaveyou.
I sure wish I had the same techniques that I have now at that time. I bet I could have made that car a whole lot better looking.
Not that there was much to save though. Paint was chipped off on the front bumper pretty bad. Still, it was a pretty cool car to drive, Nissan NX 1600. Learned how to drive stick on it. If I had some scratchX at the time, this would have been a prime place to start learning.
