DETACH - LIGHTNING is a uniquely balanced emulsion formulation of specialty non-hazardous vegetable oil derivatives that provides excellent concrete release from metallic moulds used in the concrete Precast industry.
DETACH - LIGHTNING is very economical and has been specifically designed to provide a high level of operator health and safety and to minimise adverse impact on the environment.
Available in: - 200 Lt. Drums
1000 Lt. IBC’s
Precast Concrete Manufacture
Apply DETACH - LIGHTNING undiluted by spray, brush or mop.
Apply at a rate of 50-75 m2 / Lt or as little as possible whilst ensuring a thorough and even coverage over the entire working surface of the mould. This should provide optimum performance and minimize the potential for sticking, uneven release and buildup on the moulds.
Excess material may compromise performance and can be removed with a mop or soft cloth.
Hand sprayers constructed with a cap type filling device will allow easy filling without the possibility of dust contamination
A superior surface finish may be attained by applying DETACH - LIGHTNING with a damp clean soft flannel cloth.
CAUTION - Avoid use on rubber or latex fittings or moulds as DETACH - LIGHTNING can penetrate these materials and cause shape distortion. Teflon or Viton is generally recommended for seals and fittings.
