Description

Opus Easycon XS is a chemical release agent specifically formulated to give an easy release of formwork and high quality surface finishes to concrete. Fast drying capability.

ADVANTAGES

  • Opus Easycon XS is suitable for use with all types of formwork.
  • It is a suspension and sediment free, highly mobile liquid, which can be used in very fine sprays without clogging the jets.
  • Has no unpleasant odour even when using a fine fog spray.
  • Very economic coverage rates can be obtained without difficulty.
  • Retains its mobility at low temperatures.
  • It may be applied immediately prior to casting, or treated forms may be left until apparently dry. Widespread experience shows that treated forms can be exposed to the weather for 14 days without re-treatment to give the usual excellent results.
  • Continued use gives progressively better results on timber formwork.
  • Dries in 1-2 hours to give a safe walking surface on soffits shutters which are not affected by rain.
  • Can be used with either grey or white cement, also concretes containing pigments.
  • Provides a quick, positive release of formwork, reducing labour costs and damage to formwork and moulds.
  • Drastically reduces the incidence of blowholes, surface blemishes and staining.
  • It is an effective rust inhibitor.
