    Cool Velocity Mold Repair and Release Ssytems

    Found a YouTube video with these products, but cannot find any information for them on the Meguiar's website or anywhere else on the interweb. Are they available in the US? Where?

    I have been using these, but none are "Mold" related products except the #8 and they are not removing all the swirl marks. Any suggestions on what automotive or marine products will work well on my molds and plugs? www.3Hulls.com

    Re: Velocity Mold Repair and Release Ssytems

    Our Mold Release/Velocity line is indeed available in the US, but not through typical distribution channels as mold making is a very niche industry. If you're looking to make low volume parts and don't have the need to invest in a more robust infrastructure for making your molds, then you can do an excellent job without using the mold industry specific products. The two products you show, Ultimate Compound and M49 Oxidation Remover are both pretty mild relative to the cutting power you need to properly prep your mold. You'll gain more cut, and get a better finish, if you step up to something like M105 Ultra Cut Compound or M101 Foam Cut Compound from our Mirror Glaze line. You can then use M205 Ultra Finishing Polish to finish off the mold surface, yielding a very smooth and high gloss finish. You can then use the Mold Release Wax to prep the mold surface for application of your gel coat and ultimately fiber mat and resin.

    If you are wet sanding the mold surface prior to compounding and polishing we highly recommend that you finish sanding with the finest grit sandpaper available - 3000 grit is recommended as buff out is far easier and less invasive with such a fine grit.

    Re: Velocity Mold Repair and Release Ssytems

    Thanks much for your input. The part shown is the small part of this project. The picture shows just the outriggers for the boat.

    So we will need to speed up the process. The swirl marks left on the current plug work will have to be dealt with in the mold, we we will still be wet sanding and polishing the tooling gel. The main hull needs to be much closer to perfect. I will look for the products mentioned, in the mean time where can I find the Velocity products if I cannot get what you recommend?
