ReleaSys™ CR – Concrete Release Agent
Superior Chemistry, 100% Paintable, For all Concrete Release Agent Applications
Miller-Stephenson has a developed a high-performance concrete release agent specifically designed for release of complex, challenging mold designs. Our product minimizes/eliminates “bug-holes”, provides high surface quality, consistent color pigmentation, and accurate replication of natural stone patterns. Most importantly, ReleaSys CR achieves all of this in a highly efficient and cost-effective system. At Miller-Stephenson, we understand that mold life and part de-molding are points of critical performance for concrete and stone veneer manufacturing. These aspects of the process are where Miller-Stephenson’s concrete release agent products can improve your productivity and part quality. The ReleaSys™ line of mold release agents provides a competitive advantage to the largest and smallest manufacturers alike with water-based release agent solutions that can maximize productivity, while meeting the most demanding specifications and operating conditions. ReleaSys CR concrete release agents for concrete and masonry veneer manufacturers provide:
- Extended service life of flexible molds
- Minimization/Elimination of “bug-holes”
- Optimal pigment transfer and color appearance
- Improved release ease
- Cleaner, safer environments
- Higher quality parts; 100% Paintable
- Less downtime; Lower scrap rates
- Cleaner molds
ReleaSys™ CR – Minimizes scrap rates and maintains color pigmentations
Concrete is one of the most widely utilized materials for building and construction projects globally. In the majority of cases, there is a very limited need for release agents in conjunction with the use of concrete, and even less of a need for highly specialized release agents such as those developed by Miller-Stephenson. However, in applications where concrete is utilized to mimic the appearance of natural stones (veneer/masonry stone) or in instances where the concrete is meant to be exposed for aesthetic appearances, such as in architectural concrete applications, then high-performance concrete release agents should be utilized. ReleaSys CR is ideally suited to provide the necessary barrier to protect mold surfaces while allowing consistent, uniform release of your intricate concrete designs.
ReleaSys™ CR provides the best technology and most economical way to produce visually pleasing concrete for interior and exterior applications. They are available in various chemistries that are specially formulated for the release of glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC), precast, and composite reinforced concrete from molds made of polyurethane, silicone, rubber, epoxy, and fiberglass. Our concrete release agent does not stain or transfer to the surface, finished parts are color-ready and paint-ready.
Fewer damaged blocks, Less concrete wasted, Greater return on investment
With the use of ReleaSys CR, fewer paver blocks are damaged when they come out of the mold. With fewer damaged blocks, there is less concrete wasted, leading to less concrete to dispose of, providing real savings.
Advantages of ReleaSys CR – Concrete Release Agent
- Easy-to-use, fast evaporating, solvent based formulation
- Proven performance in the release of concrete from rubber molds
- Usage leads to increased productivity and on-time delivery with reduced inventory and disposal costs
- Attractive aesthetic appearance of molded concrete paver blocks
- Parts can be painted or coated
ReleaSys CR-L – Excellent Alternative to ReleaSys CR
ReleaSys CR-L is a next-generation concrete form release agent designed to provide smooth, consistent release where other release agents are not effective. Miller-Stephenson provides a superior release film in a 100% Solvent and VOC-free formulation that has the added benefit of an instant dry time. ReleaSys CR-L provides manufacturers with a environmental and worker friendly formulation that also provides superior release and is effective on standard and complex mold configurations.
