DUOGARD can be used on various types of forms (wood, steel, fiberglass and aluminum, as well as fiber tubes). Wood forms should be saturated prior to first use. DUOGARD increases the life of wood forms by penetrating into the wood to waterproof and prevent deterioration. It also reduces maintenance requirements on metal forms by forming a rustproof film that makes the metal form essentially self-cleaning and rust-free.
DUOGARD should be applied to fiber tube forms even though they may be pre-coated. Tubes will strip much easier, even 60 to 90 days later. If tubes are stripped in 5 to 10 days, hand rubbing is greatly facilitated when tubes are coated with DUOGARD.
DUOGARD also cuts machine clean up time because it minimizes concrete build-up. Pavers, trucks, mixers, spreader-finishers, buggies, chutes and other types of equipment should be sprayed daily with DUOGARD for easy clean up and rust prevention.
DUOGARD can be applied on forms for pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete to produce a better and cleaner cast. The product will not stain or discolor concrete. DUOGARD is also available in a true water-base formula, DUOGARD II (Refer to Data Sheet No. 311).
DUOGARD Multi-Reactive Form Release is composed of an organic chemical that reacts with the alkali content of concrete to form a release film that effectively prevents the bonding of the concrete to the form. In addition, the product also contains a high molecular weight and a non-reactive, chemically inert ingredient to assist in clean, quick, form release and removal. These exclusive ingredients combine the effectiveness of a chemically reactive type and an inert barrier type to provide a doubly effective separation... DUO... and the ultimate in form release. DUOGARD meets maximum VOC content of 450 g/L for Form Release Compounds as required by the U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.
600-1500 sq. ft./gal. (14.7-36.8 sq. m/L), depending on the type and porosity of the form surface.
