MasterFinish RL308

Form release agent for railway sleeper production

How does MasterFinish RL308 work?

MasterFinish RL 308 has been specially developed for use in the production of precast concrete railway sleepers. It can be used on both heated and non-heated steel formwork.
MasterFinish RL 308 has been specially formulated to give an easy and complete release of the concrete from the forms and a significantly improved quality of the concrete surface which is smooth, homogeneous and free of pinholes.

What is MasterFinish RL308 used for?

MasterFinish RL 308 works in both a chemical and physical manner, permitting an easy demoulding and subsequent cleaning process. This is particularly important in the production of pre-stressed concrete railway sleepers. The low viscosity of the product ensures an easy and economic application to the moulds.
If applied correctly the adhesion of subsequent coatings such as plasters and paints etc. are not affected. Polystyrene and similar foams are usually not adversely affected.

What are the benefits of MasterFinish RL308?

MasterFinish RL 308 provides an economic way of obtaining an improved concrete surface by reducing the application time, permitting quicker stripping, easier and faster cleaning of the forms and an increased life of the formwork.
