Bond It MOULD RELEASE OIL Straw 5L
A high-quality chemical release agent for use on all types of standard formwork materials and mould and shutter surfaces prior to casting concrete, giving a clean release. After removal of formwork, the concrete will have a smooth, uniform, hard finish with reduced incidence of blowholes.
- Clean release even with porous materials.
- Non-staining. Can be used with white cement.
- High coverage.
- Water repellant; prevents rust
- Improved Re-use of formwork.
Suitable for use on plywood, timber, steel and plastic faced formwork. Coverage: up to 60m² per litre dependant on porosity. Apply before the first pour and re-apply before subsequent pours immediately after stripping and cleaning the mould.
Ensure all formwork is clean and dry before application.
How To Use
- Supplied ready to use – no need to dilute product.
- Apply before the first pour and re-apply before subsequent pours immediately after stripping and cleaning the mould.
- The application can be by spray or fine-haired brush.
- The excessive application should be avoided; only a very thin coating should be applied.
- If, after the first application to new timber or plywood, the material is completely absorbed a second application should be made.
- When applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s coverage recommendations MOULD RELEASE OIL
does not have any harmful effects on concrete or on the adhesion of subsequent surface coatings or renders.
Note: Improved performance on plywood and timber moulds can depend on the level of impregnation and the experience of the operative.
MOULD RELEASE OIL, in general, may be used over timber moulds, etc. which have been treated with other mould oils, providing excess has been removed. Spray application should only be with a nozzle giving a fine mist. Over application – ponding on horizontal surfaces can give surface retardation. Mop up all excessive material.
Only apply a thin film – overdosing can cause dusting. Prolonged contact with rubber seals may, in some cases, cause softening of the rubber.
Up to 60m2 per litre dependant on porosity.
