What is GreenRelease?

GreenRelease is a chemically reactive, non-petroleum, bio-degradable form release.

GreenRelease reacts with the alkali in the concrete to form a barrier film that inhibits the bonding of fresh concrete to formwork.

When properly applied, GreenRelease will provide a quick, easy and clean release of concrete from formwork.

GreenRelease will not inhibit adhesion properties of subsequent coatings to concrete.

GreenRelease can be used on various types of forms including wood, BB plyform, steel, and aluminum.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces in contact with GreenRelease must be free of dirt, oil, grease and other contaminants.


Clean tools and equipment by scraping and removing old concrete.


Store material in an interior, cool, dry place. Material may thicken and even gel at temperatures below -7° C and should be allowed to rise to 10°C or more before use. Shelf life is one year in original, un-opened container.


Actual rates may vary depending on type and porosity of surface and application methods.

  •  Aluminum, plastic, steel 1600 ft2/gal
  • Medium density plywood 1300 ft2/gal
  • BB grade plyform 1000 ft2/gal
  • Dimensional lumber 800 ft2/gal
