DETACH ULTRA PLUS - Bio-Release Agent

Product Description

Detach Ultra Plus Bio-Release Agent is a unique balanced formulation of specialty vegetable and other oil derivatives that provides excellent release from metallic moulds used in the concrete precast industry. The product has been specifically designed and formulated to provide a high class architectural finish to large precast concrete segments while offering a high level of operator health and safety and minimal adverse impact on the environment.

Product Usage


Apply Detach Ultra Plus undiluted by spray, brush or mop.

Apply at a rate of 10-20 ml / m2 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.

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. They should also be fitted with a suitably sized flat fan nozzle and appropriate tip strainer. (Contact Victorian Chemicals for further advice).

A superior surface finish may be attained by applying Detach Ultra Plus with a damp clean soft flannel cloth.

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