DUOGARD II form release agent is composed of organic chemicals emulsified in water that react with the alkali content of concrete to form a release film that effectively prevents the bonding of the concrete to the form. In addition, the product also contains a high molecular weight, non-reactive, chemically inert ingredient to assist in clean, quick form release and removal. This exclusive combination of physical and chemical reactive components provides a doubly effective separation ... DUO ... and the ultimate in form release efficiency.
DUOGARD II form release agent can be used on various types of forms (wood and steel, as well as fiberglass, aluminum and fiber tubes). DUOGARD II increases the life of wood forms by penetrating into the wood to waterproof and prevent deterioration. It reduces maintenance requirements on metal forms because it forms a rustproof film that makes the metal form essentially self-cleaning and rust-free.
For fiber tube forms, DUOGARD II should be applied, even though the forms may be precoated. The application of DUOGARD II will allow the fiber tubes to strip much easier, even 60 to 90 days later. If tubes are stripped in 5 to 10 days, hand rubbing is greatly facilitated when the tubes are coated with DUOGARD II.
DUOGARD II cuts machine cleanup time and minimizes concrete buildup. Pavers, trucks, mixers, spreader-finishers, buggies, chutes, and other types of equipment should be sprayed daily.
DUOGARD II can be applied on forms for prestressed and precast concrete to produce a better and cleaner cast.
