To complement our range of advanced composite products, PRF has developed Qiicote® Mould Release technologies for thermoset and thermoplastic composites. The Qiicote® range of products offers hard-wearing release films giving multiple releases, with variable slip with a high gloss finish, with no contaminating transfer and a low cost per part.
