I've got the opportunity to buy some spray can mold release at a really good price (business closing down) - I'm struggling to find any information on it though other than that it is a non-silicone mold release. Would that be suitable for composites or ?
BoKu - do you have any information on the weights of Soric vs Nomex honeycomb of the same mm thickness? I haven't seen a lot of info that enables a like for like comparison of weight for the same thickness.
