  • Coverage: SpecStrip Plus is ready to use without the need for dilution. Ensure form surfaces are free from dirt, rust, scale, and previous concrete buildup. It is recommended to apply SpecStrip Plus via spray, with the following coverage rates:
    • Steel, Plastic, Fiberglass: 2000 sq ft/gal
    • Conditioned Aluminum: 2000 sq ft/gal
    • HDO Plywood: 2000 sq ft/gal
    • MDO Plywood: 1500 sq ft/gal
    • Dimensional Lumber: 1000 sq ft/gal
    • BB Grade Plywood: 1000 sq ft/gal

    Application rates may vary depending on the porosity of the form surface.

  • Application Method: Use an atomizing or misting spray tip for thin, uniform films to maximize efficiency and product performance. Avoid over-application to prevent dusting. Remove any excess material with a squeegee and absorbent rags.
  • Finish: When applied correctly, SpecStrip Plus leaves a smooth, architectural concrete surface, ready for any subsequent coatings. Follow the coating manufacturer’s surface preparation recommendations.


SpecStrip Plus is available in 275-gallon totes, 55-gallon drums, and 5-gallon pails.

Shelf Life

SpecStrip Plus has a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture in its original, tightly closed containers. Keep containers free from water, dirt, or other contaminants.


  • Performs well in cold temperatures and significantly reduces surface voids on concrete, extending the lifespan of wood forms.
  • Meets VOC emission requirements for form releases (< 250 g/L).
  • Aligns with Corps of Engineers CEGS-03300, Section 10.8 Form Coating, and Navy Dock and Piers 56359 standards.
