Whoever told you that the FMS doesn't aid in the release gave you bad information. I always use the sealer when prepping plugs and molds.

If I was in your position I would try to reconstruct the problem. I'd shot a scrap with you plug paint and let it cure. Then I'd apply the sealer to one half of the sample and apply the release to the whole sample. Then do a simple layup with your gel-coat and a molding resin on the sample. Let it cure and peel it off. If the side without the sealer sticks then you know that not using the sealer is the issue.

While doing this experiment may seem troublesome, at least you will know what the problem was and choose differently in the future.

I apply the Frekote system just like ScorpionRacing and see no degradation in the quality of the plug or mold finish. I never buff the surfaces unless I'm just trying to remove finger prints, dust, and such.
