Releases any kind of form or formliner (except expanded polystyrene) from hardened concrete.
Forms and formliners strip easily and cleanly, also helps eliminate bug holes and stains.
It is easy to use and gives reliable results with no dust left on the mould.
It is the lowest viscosity release agent available
Eliminates bugholes – even with super plasticized concrete.
Promotes easy stripping, especially when applied in an ultra thin-film Can be used at 50 to 60 M2 / Litre.
Promotes easy clean-up of forms.
Will not transfer to the concrete surface – adhesion of caulks, paints, or coatings is not affected.
Does not effloresce
Does not “kill” concrete surfaces.
Does not wash off in moderate rain
It is biodegradable, nonpoisonous, and contains no carcinogens.
Fields of Application
Precast Panels with class 1 finish and /or fine detail requirements including formliners.
Pavers and products made in fibreglass moulds.
Crete Lease 880 works best when applied thinly and evenly. The less you use the better the finish. We recommend using a fan tip with a low flow, such as 800015, 800067 tips. It can be applied using a manual sprayer like a Chapin 1949 or a compressed tank sprayer like the ACTECH Fatboy range. It is recommended that a filter be used in the line.
Because Crete Lease 880 is a reactive release agent, any excess in the edges or vertices should be mopped up – wait 30 minutes after initial spraying to check for this excess.
Works in either 5 minutes or up to 3 weeks after being put onto the mould. Please note that after heavy rain re-application is required.
