|Description||Ozone FR is a concrete form release agent with exceptional performance and ease of use that is unmatched by water-based form release products. It is a specially formulated synthetic-based mold oil, having release properties which are superior to those of a conventional mold oil. Ozone FR is supplied as a clear liquid ready for direct application. In addition to preventing adhesion of the cement matrix to the formwork, Ozone FR allows air, which would otherwise be trapped, to escape from the surface during placing and vibration. This air release property minimizes surface blemishes and results in a substantial reduction in remedial costs.|
|Primary Applications||Ozone FR can be used on steel, timber, plywood and plastic formwork.|
|Advantages||Forms release easily and cleanly from concrete.
Dramatically reduces the occurrence of voids and bug holes.
Tolerant to freezing conditions during storage and transportation.
Treated forms are ready for use quickly easy storage and shipping.
Very low odor.
Ready to use.

|Instruction for use||Mold preparation: All molds, new or used, must be cleaned of surface deposits of rust, concrete, oil or other materials. Inadequate cleaning may lead to surface blemishes due to the adhering material. The use of a proprietary chemical degreaser or acid cleaning is recommended.
Application: If only limited use of the formwork is envisaged, new timber molds may be coated directly with blended Ozone FR solution. If forms are regularly re-used the surface should initially be coated with a suitable polyurethane sealer. This provides increased protection to the timber surface, improves ease of cleaning and prevents the buildup of large residual levels of release agent in the timber of the form which may lead, over time, to increased surface dusting or retardation. Blended Ozone FR can be applied by all normal methods, including brush, sponge and conventional spray. Where suitable, the spray application is recommended. Non-absorbent surfaces require a single application. New, unsealed, timber surfaces should be re-coated if delay in use of the mold leads to the absorption of the release agent into the timber.
|Coverage||Depending on the porosity and texture of the mold surface, typical coverage rates of 20 to 60 m² /liter will be obtainable from Ozone FR. Best results will be obtained with the thinnest practical coating. Over application should be avoided. Excessive application on flat surfaces or which leads to pooling of release agent in the corners of forms is uneconomic and can lead to surface dusting or, in worst cases, surface retardation.|
|Cleaning & Disposal||Ozone FR may be removed from tools and equipment with diesel when it is wet. On drying may be removed with Ozone Solvent. Don’t dispose of into water or soil but according to local regulations.|
|Precautions/Limitations||After the application of Ozone FR, the treated area must be protected from rain before the concrete placed.|
|Health & safety||Possible risk of irreversible effects in contact with skin. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves, and eye/face protection. Barrier creams provide additional skin protection. Should accidental skin contact occur, remove immediately with plenty of clean water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical
attention immediately- do not induce vomiting.
