Form Release Agent

Product Description

PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE is an all-weather, non-staining form release agent for easy, void-free and smooth release of concrete. PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE produces high quality architectural precast finishes. PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE will not interfere with paints or other coatings when properly applied and is high temperature resistant while providing corrosion resistance to steel forms with no powdery residue. Coverage: approximately 2,500-3,000 ft2/gal (61-74 m2/L).


Apply PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE by brush, roller, sprayer, lightly oiled mop or by fogger on steel, sealed concrete and wood forms, fiberglass, Plexiglas or other synthetic forms. PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE provides high quality void-free snow-white smooth castings and can be used with gray cement.

Directions for Use

Remove any oil or grease residues from prior use of other release agents. Apply PIERI® MARB-A-LIKE on the forms to cover about 3,000 sq. ft. / gal. Do not over apply and allow to dry for approximately 10-15 minutes before pouring or placing concrete into the treated form. Finally, strip the mix from the forms after adequate curing.

Do not allow the over-sprayed release to dry if additional mopping or wiping will be required.
