The Dutch construction industry uses concrete release agents in manufacturing a variety of concrete products. These concrete release agents ensure the easy removal of concrete from moulds. Concrete release agents are mainly processed in the prefab concrete industry, but also at construction sites. Due to the wide diversity of concrete products and processing methods, more than 100 different concrete release agents are currently available on the market. As with many other products in the construction and concrete industry, these release agents may have adverse effects on the health of the user and the environment. The suppliers of concrete release agents take responsibility in ensuring occupational health and safety, as well as protecting the environment. By offering work and environmentally friendly concrete release agents, they are able to greatly reduce the chance of adverse effects.
