WATER-BASE CONCRETE FORM RELEASE
Cuts stripping time to a minimum and reduces form
cleaning and repair.
SEALTIGHT DUOGARD II Form Release Agent is a true water-base formula designed to
form a clean-release film on concrete forms, equipment and tools.
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 meets maximum VOC content limit of 450 g/L for Form
Release Compounds as required by the U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.
DUOGARD II Form Release Agent can be used on various types of forms (wood,
steel, fiberglass and aluminum as well as fiber tubes). DUOGARD II increases the
life of wood forms by penetrating into the wood to waterproof and prevent
It reduces maintenance requirements on metal forms because it forms a rustproof
film that makes the metal form essentially self-cleaning and rust-free.
DUOGARD II should be applied to fiber tube forms even though they may be
pre-coated. Tubes will strip much easier, even 60 to 90 days later. If tubes are
stripped in 5 to 10 days, hand rubbing is greatly facilitated when tubes are
coated with DUOGARD II.
DUOGARD II cuts machine cleanup time and minimizes concrete build-up. 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. The product will not stain or discolor
Advantages and Benefits
|Can be safely used inside or outside
|Produces a better and cleaner cast when applied on
prestressed and precast concrete forms
|Cuts stripping time to an absolute minimum
|Reduces form cleaning and repairing
|Increases wood form life...prevents rust...and
rustproofs metal forms
|Effectively minimizes concrete buildup on pavers, R/M
trucks, mixers, spreader-finishers, buggies, chutes and other equipment
|Prevents bonding between poured concrete and the form
|Breaks concrete bond between surface and form cleanly
and effectively...leaves smooth surface
|Will not stain or discolor concrete and can be painted
|Ready-to-use...requires no additional mixing
|Minimizes surface voids
|VOC compliant...meets the U.S. EPA Architectural
Coatings Rule requirements|
SURFACE PREPARATION: Form surfaces are to be thoroughly cleaned prior to
application. All rust, scale and previously used form release agents must be
removed in accordance with good concrete practices.
METHOD OF APPLICATION: Spraying is the ideal method of application... Use a
Chapin 8001 spray tip that produces a flow of 1/10 of a gallon per minute.
DUOGARD II may also be applied by roller coating, mopping or brushing. A thin
film should be applied for maximum economy and efficiency. Runs or puddles need
to be brushed out. For metal forms, the best results are obtained with a
spray-on "fog" application of DUOGARD II.
CLEAN-UP: Tools and equipment used to apply DUOGARD II
clean up easily with soap and water.

to moderate irritation of the skin and eyes.
DO NOT OVER-APPLY DUOGARD II TO FORMS AND EQUIPMENT. DO NOT DILUTE.
