New Zealand Precast Concrete Release Agent Application Example

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Feb 28, 2017 6:27:14 PM

(This week's post comes from a New Zealand Precast Concrete Company. You can view the video here.)

A short introductory video on precast panel production. Filmed on-site at Wilco Precast's plant in Papakura, Auckland, New Zealand the video examines how quality precast concrete panels are manufactured for the domestic market. Appropriate concrete construction techniques, as well as health and safety practices, are covered in the short introductory video.

Concrete Form Release for Wood

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Feb 23, 2017 2:50:22 PM

(This week's post comes from a HOMEGUIDES' article, "How to Keep Concrete From Sticking to Wood." It has a unique perspective from the homebuilder's point of view. You can read the full article here.)

How to Keep Concrete From Sticking to Wood

Concrete-Form-Release-For-Wood.jpgConstruction professionals routinely use plywood panels as shaping forms when pouring concrete for new home foundations. If the wood forms were treated properly with a form release agent, you can easily pull them away after the concrete dries. A do-it-yourselfer can pour concrete between 2-by-4 forms when installing a new sidewalk or patio, but for best results, pretreat the wood in the same way the pros do.

(Caption: Hill and Griffith recommends Grifcote Bio Gold concrete form release for wood. A non-petroleum, non-staining concrete form release that is both VOC compliant and biodegradable.)

Oil-Based Release Agents

At one time, construction professionals would create their own oil-based form release agents using materials such as diesel fuel, home heating oil and mineral oil to keep poured concrete from sticking to wood. Today's homebuilders often select stick-resistant plywood or OSB panels pretreated at the lumber mill with proprietary chemical blends that may include parafin, mineral oil and linseed oil. Some concrete contractors extend the stick-resistant life of the plywood by using a refresher coating of a commercial release agent or a solvent-thinned linseed oil.

Water-Based Barrier Agents

Water-based release agents can also keep concrete from sticking to wood forms, and unlike oil-based formulas, they do so without releasing high levels of volatile organic compounds into the air. VOC-releasing chemicals are highly regulated in some regions because they contribute to atmospheric smog. Commercial water-based release agents are produced from plant-based materials and are less likely to discolor the concrete's surface. Ordinary vegetable oils can serve the same purpose if applied in two or three successive coats.

Reactive Release Agents

Chemically active release agents react with the alkalinity of the concrete to prevent the concrete from sticking to wood molds and forms. Commercial products of this type are formulated with a fatty acid and a soapy surfactant that react chemically with the concrete to help create a clean, unstained concrete surface with a smooth edge. At the same time, they create their own thin chemical membrane that blocks the concrete from infiltrating the wood's pores.
