Concrete form release agents are often overlooked when designing and specifying concrete structures. In addition, many wrongly believe that form release agents are all one in the same, but in reality, there are a wide variety of agents with different performance characteristics.

Recent innovations in form release technology have introduced more sustainable products to the market, and higher performing release agents that result in more beautiful concrete structures. Do not let form release agents be an afterthought. Specifying the appropriate formula from a reputable manufacturer will help to achieve a concrete building that is as beautiful as envisioned.
