Marble Finish yields very high quality architectural concrete finishes. The release provides corrosion inhibition of steel forms, very high heat resistance with no powdery residues. Marble Finish is also shipped with no red label due to the slower evaporating solvent now used and is not classified a flammable liquid.

ACC High Performance Release http://www.acchemicals.com/high-performance-release/ Tue, 13 Oct 2015 20:07:16 +0000 http://www.acchemicals.com/?p=939 ACC High Performance Release is an all weather, non-staining release
agent for easy void free and smooth release of concrete. ACC HPR yields very high quality architectural
concrete finishes. The release provides corrosion inhibition of steel forms, very high heat resistance with no
powdery residues. When used in accordance with the directions below the finished concrete will have a
smooth, paintable surface. In the event over application occurs and creates residue on the concrete a rinsing
of the concrete surface with a good commercial detergent will remove any residual laitance. ACC High
Performance Release is a non-flammable petroleum liquid, which for shipping purposes has a red label.

ACC Synthetic Stone Release 3 http://www.acchemicals.com/acc-synthetic-stone-release-3/ Sun, 11 Oct 2015 13:13:25 +0000 http://www.acchemicals.com/?p=766 ACC Synthetic Stone Release 3 is a ready to use, non-toxic, waterbased
stable emulsion with excellent release and surface consolidation properties. It is formulated to
reduce surface imperfections in precast, prestressed and cast-in-place concrete. It works well on all types
of form surfaces as well as rubber, plastic or urethane form liners. Promotes easy form removal, provides a
water repellent, rain resistant and rust inhibiting film to the formwork. It is suitable for both indoor and
outdoor applications particularly where VOC emissions are limited in the workplace.

ACC Micro Finish Gel http://www.acchemicals.com/acc-micro-finish-gel/ Sat, 13 Aug 2011 20:47:46 +0000 http://www.acchemicals.com/?p=857 Micro Finish Gel is a new way to acid etch concrete in a controlled acid etching gel.  It is formulated in gel form which helps to limit fumes, control uniformity and adherence to vertical surfaces.  Ideal for simulated limestone finishes, for field applications, patching including vertical surfaces and as a preparatory step prior to the application of coatings in the place of sandblasting or even light shot blasting. Will not interfere with waterproofing or other coatings to be subsequently applied to the etched surface.

Altus & Optimus – Vertical and Horizontal Construction Joint Applications http://www.acchemicals.com/altus-optimus-vertical-and-horizontal-construction-joint-applications/ Wed, 13 Jul 2011 20:21:49 +0000 http://www.acchemicals.com/?p=848 Generally, when specifying chemical retarders on cast-in-place concrete
applications there should be references to both the formwork specifications as well
as the use and proper application of the retarder specified along with the placing
and finishing operations in the concrete sections. This is particularly important if
the contractors producing each are not the same. In most cases we would generally
recommend generating a separate architectural concrete specification inclusive of
all the preparation work, concrete placement and appropriate finishing required to
complete the project correctly.  Click below for complete guide information.
