What is Form Oil?
A special type of oil made with a high molecular weight; Form Oil provided the ability to keep the concrete from bonding to the form. It's often called form release oil. When it's applied properly, it provides a budget-friendly way to reduce the creation of bug holes.
It's made with a mixture of light-colored mineral oils and release agents. These agents will react with the concrete to provide a barrier and prevent the concrete from bonding to your forms. Depending on the type you get, it may be brushed or sprayed onto the forms.
Benefits of Form Oil
Of course, the main benefit is keeping the concrete from bonding to the form for your concrete project. This type of oil will also provide a few other benefits for your concrete project including:
