The Perfect Release with Grifcote concrete form release agents that are readily and inherently biodegradable.

Less is better with Precast Concrete From Release 4

Grifcote® products are the most widely used concrete form release agents in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

All release agents are easily sprayed, swabbed or wiped.

Gifcote products are non-staining and ready to use with no mixing needed and offer many unique features to improve concrete separation from forms, pallets and molds.

Grifcote carries a non-flammable/noncombustible rating and is considered DOT hazardous material exempt. Drivers DO NOT need to be HM 126 or use placards. We’ve engineered Grifcote products to have low odor and flash points above 260 degrees Fahrenheit to keep workers safe.

Grifcote is chemically formulated to help reduce the formation of bug holes. Reactive fatty acid/methyl esters react with free lime. The reactive ingredients in Grifcote creates a metallic soap that eases separation from the form.

All products comply with all federal or state regulations regarding concrete release agents.

And are classified as either readily biodegradable, with a half-life of 28 days or less or inherently bio-degradable with a half-life of 60 days or less.

Grifcote is EPA VOC compliant. With less than 250 grams per liter of Volatile Organic Compounds Grifcote is compliant in all 50 States and Canada.

Spraying form release agents on mixers and equip-ment reduces labor and cleanup at the end of the day eliminating concrete adhering to the equipment.

Coverage rates are determined by the person applying the material and the low viscosity of Grifcote. In all cases, the “Thinner is better” concept applies for maximum coverage and best release and finish.

You can purchase Grifcote products in drums, 300-gallon totes or bulk tanks. Grifcote has indefinite freeze/thaw cycles. You don’t need to worry about Grifcote degradation due to temperature changes.

FR-50-VOC is the work horse for the concrete industry.

Grifcote form release agents are designed for specific industry applications including: precast, pipe, burial vault, prestressed and other similar applications.

PR-SS-VOC is designed for Packerhead pipe operations and those really tough release jobs. Give us your toughest release challenge and we’ll recommend an economical solution. 

CC-150-VOC is used to season concrete forms for the best release.

The Hill and Griffith Company works closely with pipe and form equipment manufactures to provide optimum release characteristics.

LV-50 Plus was created specifically for use with potable water and for seasoning forms. It is NSF (ANSI 61) approved for use with potable water with some restrictions in specific applications.


Happy Fourth of July week!
