Use of Anti-Stick Agent in Polymer Cures

      Polymer-coated materials that cross link during cure will stick
to their cure tray.  A technique is disclosed for preventing this
sticking to the curing trays.

      By spraying each tray with a dry release agent (Miller-
Stephenson MS-143), the coating does not stick to the trays, allowing
the cured material to fall out freely.

      The dry release agent's active ingredient is a member of the
fluorocarbon (Teflon) family.

      The sticking problem has been eliminated by spraying each tray
at each cure cycle with the release agent.  The release agent acts as
a barrier between the coated material and the trays during the curing
operation long enough for the cross linking stage to occur.

      The coated material will now freely release from its tray.
