Posted by Myke Amend on Jan 21, 2016 2:23:05 PM

cast concrete parking tiesGrifcote FR-50-VOC is the workhorse for the concrete industry for many reasons: From its Easy and Safe Application, to its Low Viscosity, Low Odor, and High Flash Point, it is no surprise that this pick from the Grifcote line is one of Hill and Griffith Company's most popular concrete casting products.

  • All Grifcote release agents are easily sprayed, swabbed or wiped.
  • Coverage rates are determined by the person applying the material. The low viscosity of Grifcote allows, in all cases, the "Thinner is better" concept that applies to form release application.
  • Grifcote products have low odor and high flash points above 260 degrees Fahrenheit to keep workers safe.
  • Grifcote carries a non-flammable noncombustible rating and is considered DOT hazardous material exempt. Drivers DO NOT need to be Haz Mat 126 Certified or use placards on their equipment.


The Hill and Griffith Company is known for our hands-on approach. Let us visit your plant and recommend products that suit your needs.

"Self-compacting high-performance concrete (SCHPC) has till now suffered from one weakness – when exposed to fire it flakes and splits, which reduces its loadbearing capacity. Empa scientists have now developed a method of manufacturing fire-resistant self-compacting high-performance concrete which maintains its mechanical integrity under these conditions."
