Application Instructions

  • Tri-Lox 5500 comes in an aerosol spray that can be easily applied, even to hard-to-reach places. Apply in a well-ventilated area.
  • Prior to application, surfaces should be cleaned and degreased.
  • After mixing ball moves freely, shake can for approximately one minute. Hold can approximately six to twelve inches from surface and apply in a thin coat until “dry to the touch.”   After each minute of use, shake for five seconds. Tri-Lox 5500 is fast-drying, usually within one to two minutes.
  • For metal molds, it is recommended that you use two thin coats. If the surface is smooth and shiny, some light sanding may be necessary.
  • For ceramic molds, four coats are recommended to insure a smooth release.
  • Once thoroughly dried, the lubricant is ready to use in applications at room temperature, in cryogenic conditions, or at very high temperatures.
  • Do not use aerosol can close to a heat source, i.e. electric arcs, open flames, or other ignition sources. Do not allow contact with molten metal until lubricant is thoroughly dry.
