Lubricant for forms and formworks is used in industry in the production of concrete products, as well as in monolithic construction. Its composition provides excellent release properties and anti-corrosion protection. Lubricant for forms and formworks does not have an aggressive effect on varnish, plywood, plastics and metal; it has shown excellent results on vertical and horizontal surfaces of forms; it does not drain under the influence of vibration and concrete mixture. The concrete surface of the product, without unnecessary pre-treatment, is ready for applying paint, plaster or adhesives. Use Lubricant for forms and formwork can significantly improve the quality of products made of concrete, foam concrete and aerated concrete, can be used in conditions of technological steaming at high temperatures up to + 80C, is used in finished form:

Main characteristics:

  • economical material consumption
  • universal use of lubricant for forms and formwork made of metal, plywood, plastic, plastic
  • holds well on the surface of the molds during all technological operations
  • ensures a smooth production process
  • completely eliminates adhesion of the surface of the concrete product to the mold
  • does not spoil the appearance of products, suitable for white architectural concrete
  • does not affect the timing and intensity of concrete hardening
  • protects metal from corrosion
  • saves wood

Instructions for using lubricant for molds and formwork:

1. Preparing the mold surface

Make sure the surface of the mold is free of dust, dirt and previous grease residue.
If necessary, pre-clean the surface of the mold to remove old grease or dirt.

2. Applying lubricant

Before use, make sure that the mold and form release agent is in working order.
Shake the lubricant container to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
Select the appropriate tool for applying lubricant: roller, brush or brush, depending on the size and shape of the surface.
Apply the lubricant evenly over the entire surface of the mold. Make sure the entire surface is evenly covered.

3. Optimal lubricant consumption

Calculate the optimal lubricant consumption according to the type of mold surface:

On a wooden surface: 1 liter per 20-40 m².
On plastic or metal surfaces: 1 liter per 65-80 m².

4. After use

After applying the release agent, allow time for it to dry and adhere to the surface of the form before concreting.
Make sure that the lubricant has completely penetrated the pores of the mold surface and formed a protective layer.

5. Concreting process

After applying the lubricant, you can begin the concreting process.
Ensure proper distribution and compaction of the concrete mixture inside the mold.

6. After use

After completing the concreting process, clean the forms of any remaining concrete and remaining grease.
Store lubricant according to package instructions in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

This instruction will help you apply mold and form release agent correctly, ensuring excellent release of concrete products from the mold and protecting mold surfaces from corrosion and wear.

What is formwork lubricant and why is it needed?

Formwork release agent is a special composition that is applied to the surface of the formwork before pouring concrete. Its purpose is to ensure easy separation of concrete products from the formwork, preventing concrete from sticking to the surface of the form.

What are the benefits of using form release agent?

Formwork lubricant:

Ensures easy removal of concrete products from the mold.
Prevents damage to the concrete surface when removed from the formwork.
Protects formwork from corrosion and wear, increasing its service life.
Provides the possibility of applying subsequent finishing materials without pre-treatment of the concrete surface.

What formwork can be lubricated with this lubricant?

The form release agent is suitable for use on metal, plywood, plastic and plastic formwork.

What temperature should the lubricant and formwork be at for application?

The grease can be applied at temperatures from +5°C to +80°C. The formwork must be dry and free of dust and dirt before applying the lubricant.

Is it possible to lubricate the formwork manually?

Yes, the lubricant can be applied either manually, using a brush or brush, or using a roller for a more even distribution over the surface of the mold.

What lubricant consumption is required for a certain formwork area?

Lubricant consumption depends on the type of formwork surface:

On a wooden surface: 1 liter per 20-40 m².
On plastic or metal surfaces: 1 liter per 65-80 m².

Can this lubricant be used on different types of concrete (eg white architectural concrete)?

Yes, form release agent is suitable for use on a variety of concrete types, including white architectural concrete.

How long does it take for grease to dry before pouring concrete?

Drying time for the grease may vary depending on environmental conditions, but usually takes a few minutes to several hours.

Can the lubricant be diluted with water?

PROTEX formwork grease is not diluted with water!!!

In which container is the formwork lubricant supplied?

PROTEX formwork lubricant is supplied in 20L cans or 200L metal barrels

Is PROTEX formwork lubricant a concentrate?

PROTEX mold and formwork lubricant is not a concentrate, but a ready-to-use product

At what temperature should the formwork grease be stored?

The PROTEX formwork lubricant is stored at a temperature of 5°C to 35°C in a tightly closed container to avoid water ingress.
