Bio Strip WB Concentrate

Biodegradable water-based form release concentrate

Bio-Strip WB Concentrate is a 100% biodegradable, chemical release agent emulsion concentrate. When diluted properly with water (4 to 1), it provides an effective release, making it ideal for environmentally sensitive areas like bridge formwork over rivers or potable water reservoirs. It ensures easy release from various surfaces such as wood, steel, aluminum, and elastomeric liners, leaving a bondable architectural concrete surface.

  • Economically concentrated: simply add water
  • Biodegradable and environmentally friendly
  • Free from petroleum distillates
  • Compliant with VOC regulations
  • Odorless and non-staining
  • Reduces buildup and bugholes
