An injection molder of cellular telephone antennas made of black thermoplastic polyurethane is saving more than $2000 per month in labor and raw materials costs by using Xtend 802 semi-permanent mold release from Axel Plastics Research Laboratories.

In this process, steel inserts that create the threaded cavity in the molded parts are dipped in Xtend 902. The mold release is reapplied only every 90 minutes. Prior to this, the steel inserts were dipped into a PTFE-based mold release before each molding cycle.
