    I don't use it in the cavities. I use it as a sealant when I store my moulds. It seems to do a good job as an oxygen barrier.

    Its dry graphite in a spray can.

    I used it a couple times, that was long enough to not want to do that again.
    It clogs the air vent lines in a mold very very well.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    Please don't use it.
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    It mucks up a mould and is the devil to clean off .
    I have found a couple good use for it...I spray my Lyman Casting Ladle's with a nice even coat ...
    inside and out ... lead no longer sticks to the ladle or spout .

    Spray the insides of your cleaned melting pot , keeps crud from sticking to sides .

    I bought a can years ago and hate to throw stuff away so I find other uses .
