Instructions for Use:

Please read Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) before use. If necessary, polish mold to the desired level of gloss. GruberCare MR Sealer CA should only be applied to clean and dry mold surfaces. If a wax or silicone-based release agent has been used previously, remove all traces of previous product using a solvent-based cleaner such as GruberCare MR Stripper CA. Mold cleaning and GruberCare MR Sealer CA application should be performed in a well-ventilated area.

  1. Apply GruberCare MR Sealer CA with a clean, dry cotton cloth.

  2. Gently wipe over mold surface, covering an area of approximately 2 square feet.

  3. Wait 10-20 seconds (until the edges of the wet film start to dry). Using a second dry cotton cloth, gently spread the wet film. Do NOT wipe dry. Vigorous rubbing or polishing is not required.

  4. Repeat until mold is completely coated. Ensure each application area overlaps the last to ensure complete coverage.

  5. Allow at least 10 minutes between coats.

  6. Repeat Steps 1-5 above for a total of three coats.

  7. Allow final film to cure for at least 30 minutes at room temperature before applying top-coat. Allowing a longer cure or heat curing (e.g. 10 minutes at 140°F) will improve film durability. Top-Coat:  GruberCare MR Sealer CA can be used as a sealer and primer for any polymer top-coat, e.g. GruberCare MR ACA or GruberCare MR GCA. See the specific Product Bulletin for application information.
