About Nox-Crete Form Coating

As the original chemically active concrete form release agent, Nox-Crete Form Coating entered the market in 1956 and changed the concrete construction industry in a big way. Since then, more release agents have entered the market but the original is still a high performance option.

Nox-Crete Form Coating provides exceptional, unduplicated results on non-overlaid plywood, dimensional lumber, MDO plywood and plywood-faced handset forms. This product is also suitable for use on most forms, including wood, steel, and plastic. When used properly, Nox-Crete Form Coating offers multiple benefits beyond a crisp, positive release. It reduces concrete buildup, increases wood form longevity through reducing the absorption of alkaline bleed water and substantially reduces surface voids.

When used with steel forms, Nox-Crete Form Coating produces iron soaps, which minimize the formation of rust.
