Title: Liquid release agent composition and shim process

Abstract: An improved shimming process and release composition for filling the gap between a releasable composite skin and a supporting body with a liquid shim material, using a novel viscous liquid release composition free of volatile vehicle. The liquid release composition is viscous and easy to apply by brushing or wiping, and enables complete and clean release of the composite skin without delamination. The release composition is easy to clean from the parted surfaces of the cured shim material on the composite skin and the supporting body.
