ChemMasters, Inc. has announced “Release,” a general-purpose concrete form release agent. Release is a mineral oil and petroleum-based product. Its dual action formulation is lightly reactive with improved barrier characteristics.

Release from ChemMasters is for poured in place or formed concrete, working well with forms made of plywood, high-density plywood, wood, fiberglass, steel or aluminum. It promotes the clean, positive release of forms and helps to reduce surface imperfections in concrete. Release helps minimize dusting of formed surfaces and reduces labor costs associated with stripping and cleaning forms and equipment.

Release clings well to vertical surfaces and has a pleasant cherry scent. It is available in 5 gallon pails and 55 gallon drums and complies with Ozone Transport Commission Standards for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and Federal EPA Regulation 40 CFR Part 59.
