Improved release of concrete paver blocks from rubber molds

Meeting Release Needs in the Production of Decorative Concrete Parts

Concrete blocks, molds and castings are increasingly used for decorative masonry construction. Poor release of concrete from molds can cause damaged blocks, inconsistent results and wasted materials.

Dow Corning® 2418 Release Emulsion is an easy-to-use , solvent-free aqueous emulsion with proven performance in the release of concrete from rubber molds . Usage can lead to increased productivity and on-time delivery with reduced inventory and disposal costs.

Fewer paver blocks are damaged when they come out of the mold with the use of Dow Corning® 2418 Release Emulsion . Less concrete wasted leads to less concrete to dispose of, providing real savings. The emulsion helps cut the cost of production without affecting the ability of the concrete pavers and other parts to be painted or coated .

To learn more about the use and benefits of Dow Corning® 2418 Release Emulsion for concrete release, read our case study or visit the concrete release web page.
