If you are trying to protect the concrete you poured
probably nothing is needed. If you want to protect the
wood maybe Pam or some other sprayable oil.
:I need to buils some small forms ( 2X 6 size). What
is good to coat
: the wood so the cement won't stick to it when I take
it a part.
the pros use a 'releasing agent' which is usual an oil based product IINM.
would seem to indicate that fuel oil (diesel) might be a cheap and nasty
"solution" depending on the application.
Don't know what you mean be "casting". I was referring to forms for
driveways, sidewalks, etc. The edges almost always end up at or below
grade, but they don't look particularly bad when I strip the forms.
It's just called form oil in the trades....Google search returns a
bunch........all kinds of different things but mostly petroleum based.
Diesel fuel works but stinks to high heaven as always. Kiss the wood
