SMD Products Company founded in 1991 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, is one of the leading manufacturers of Biodegradable Form Oil Release. The company has two divisions; one focusing on global consulting work for various entities who want to bring their product direct to the market, and the second focusing on the marketing and sales of various proprietary oils and lubricants for the construction and steel press industries. With operations in the USA, Japan, Singapore, SMD is the correct choice for any company that is serious about the environment, yet concerned about overall costs.
SMD-70 was showcased as a global solution for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Thanks to our partners in Japan, SMD-70 bio-degradable form release was the form release used during the construction of the Tokyo Olympic Stadium and Tokyo Olympic Village. The environmental performance, cost competitiveness, and superior quality of the concrete were all factors that were taken into account when Japan's largest construction conglomerate selected a partner that would meet the needs of the Paris COP21 and sustainability efforts of the 2020 Olympics.
SMD Products Company is pleased to announce its successful participation in the 2021 AFCC Biobased Economy Conference held in Washington, DC on November 16, 2021.

SMD Products Company will again be joining the World of Concrete exhibition where we will be launching our online store for SMD-70 concrete form release order placement. Due to the sudden increase in demand for sustainable infrastructure materials we have invested in our online store to ease the burden of supply chain challenges.

Yes, SMD-70 was developed with environmental footprint considerations in mind. SMD-70 ships in 55 gallon (210 liter) drums. It is mixed at a 1:4 ratio with water. The water serves as a delivery agent, allowing the proprietary oil to be spread on the form via a high pressure sprayer, hand sprayer, or cloth. The water runs off, or evaporates, and the form release remains. Allowing for better/smoother concrete with less bug holes. Thereby avoiding touch up work.
Yes, unlike other petroleum derived form release products, SMD-70 has no VOC fumes. This means there is no loss of lubrication due to evaporation. SMD-70 has been used in tropical regions where the form was sprayed and left overnight for rebar attaching work, and there was no loss of lubrication. (As we all understand, form release should not be sprayed on rebar, and for this reason SMD-70 is the preferred form release for many global construction companies who are quality conscious)
In November 2021, we released some preliminary data which suggests that applying SMD-70 to poured concrete may be better than water bath curing methods which are damaging to the environment. SMD-70 is now being used in some of the largest dam projects in Asia due to its environmental benefits.
As part of our commitment to build back better infrastructure projects in the United States, using 100% derived sustainable materials from the United States, we are offering free samples of our award winning SMD-70 concrete form release. All you have to pay are the shipping and handling costs.
One box contains 2 jugs of SMD-70 concentrate. We look forward to serving you with our bio-preferred SMD-70!
