Standard wedges

Demolding wedges, mold release wedges, soft flex wedges, hard stiff wedges, medium flex wedges, nylon wedges, two taper wedges, handle wedges.

Place the bevel on wedge point at outside of mold radius and guide the wedge downward into mold. Strike wedge with a flat mallet, not a steel hammer.

Please see our Inflatable wedges page for heavy-duty and air gun demolding wedges. Please see our Putty knives, scrapers page for plastic scrapers to remove bits of hardened resin from mold between cycles or when mold cleaning.

Soft flexible wedges

Flexible pink wedges are used in new molds or molds with sharply contoured edges. Also used to remove parts from the mold where the fiberglass is thin. Flexible soft red wedges bend to reach deep into corners without scratching or fracturing mold.

Other shape wedges

The J1560 wedge is tapered in 2 planes for large boat hulls. J1562 includes a long handle with a ribbed grip. These last even in your "hammering" mode. Handle and back of wedge forms a 90˚ corner so another wedge can be used against this area for a piggy-back insertion into deeper molds.
