    Not sure if it effects PC, will let you know.
    I have used graphite applied by pencil in my cavities and on mold surfaces for years to keep these small lead deposits from sticking, so I know that graphite is no problem with PC. I can't see how the spray would be any different as it appears to have acetone as a carrier, which quickly evaporates and leaves the lightly bonded powder. This spray stuff can be brushed off with a toothbrush and still a very light color remains. I am now wondering how well the graphite spray would work by coating the entire mold for storage? I plan to give that a try, if it works a mold could be ready to cast by simply brushing off the surfaces.

    Glad it worked for you.

    Dragonheart,
    I got the spray and cast 35# of Lee 120 TC 9s and NOE 314202 bullets. I have a 5 cavity NOE mold that has given me fits but the spray resulted in both molds raining bullets yielding about 1000 of each variety. They fell out of the mold with ease increased production rates. Very pleased and I will power coat the 9s tomorrow.

    I discovered that sprue smear was easily wiped away with my glove, a real win for aluminum molds.

    Dragonheart, I was very pleased with the bullets appearance. I finished coating the 9s with no difference that I can detect so all of my molds will get the spray. Extremely happy all the around and thanks for the information you posted.
