Additional Details

Bio-Nox is a water-based, biodegradable form release agent that chemically reacts with concrete to create a soap-like, bond-preventing film that provides a high-grade architectural finish, while remaining gentle on forms. Bio-Nox can be used on most smooth, clean form surfaces such as steel, HDO, MDO, plastic, fiberglass, bare plywood and plywood faced handset forms.

It's suitable for use on many rubber and closed cell foam forms as well as form liners that can't tolerate conventional solvent, or petroleum based release agents.

Bio-Nox is ideal for use where environmental and occupational issues are of the utmost importance. In particular, precast operations of enclosed building sites. The agent reduces the risk of skin or odor irritations that can occur with petroleum-based agents.

Bio-Nox is ideal for forming substrates sensitive to solvents and petroleum. Finally, always protect Bio-Nox from freezing.
