SafeSlick(TM), a durable blended Boron compound for use as a release agent in high-temperature and high-pressure applications, is non-silicone, non-oil, non-conductive and non-reactive.

As a mold conditioner, SafeSlick(TM) seasons molds at start-up and helps extend the life of well-used molds.

No propellants are needed to apply SafeSlick(TM), and no special exhaust is required when in use since no fumes are emitted from the mold release.
