Grifcote form release is readily and inherently biodegradable

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Apr 13, 2018 4:36:08 PM

Form release selection depends on the results you want to achieve.

What is form release?
Non-reactive or passive oil types of form release work by creating a barrier when heavily applied to the form, but that increases chances for staining and bugholes. Chemically active types have an active ingredient which chemically combines with calcium (lime) in the cement. The active ingredient is a fatty acid dissolved in petroleum or vegetable oils. This calcium/fatty acid product "metallic soap" is stable and causes the form to release from the concrete. This type produces fewer bug-holes, stains and surface irregularities than barrier types. They can remain on the forms for weeks without reapplication.
