    APPLICATION

    Precast Concrete Manufacture

    Apply DETACH - SATIN undiluted by spray, brush or mop.

    Apply at a rate of 50-75 m2 / Lt or as little as possible whilst ensuring a thorough and even coverage over the entire working surface of the mould. This should provide optimum performance and minimize the potential for sticking, uneven release and buildup on the moulds.

    Excess material may compromise performance and can be removed with a mop or soft cloth.

    Hand sprayers constructed with a cap type filling device will allow easy filling without the possibility of dust contamination

    A superior surface finish may be attained by applying DETACH - SATIN with a damp clean soft flannel cloth.

    CAUTION - Avoid use on rubber or latex fittings or moulds as DETACH - SATIN can penetrate these materials and cause shape distortion. Teflon or Viton is generally recommended for seals and fittings.
