Its dual action formulation is lightly reactive with improved barrier characteristics. Release especially suits cast-in-place concrete, working well with forms made of plywood, high-density plywood, wood, fiberglass, steel or aluminum. It promotes the clean, positive release of forms and helps to reduce surface imperfections in finished slabs and structures.
