What Are Bond Breakers?
Bond breakers are products developed by an engineer. Bond breakers are used to easily separate two surfaces.
Bond breakers mostly use wax, petroleum-based substances, or grease. But these chemicals change the characteristics of the surface by the chemical reaction with the surface on which they are applied.
Bond breakers are used more in precast units. Bond breakers are used in precast units to remove precast from the formwork. It also provides enough strength to lift and move pieces of precast.
Bond breakers are applied to the surface of the formwork so that the concrete precast can be easily separated from the formwork. . This bond breaker is used in special formwork in precast products such as cement pipes, concrete blocks, U-shaped drains, etc.
Precast products like concrete pipe, u-shape drain are loaded into the truck using equipment like a crane. This product is then unloaded on the site.
Bond breakers are commonly used in tilt-up walls and concrete precast units.
