Brazil, the world’s largest coffee bean producer, recently announced that it is facing the worst drought in 91 years, affecting local hydropower generation and agricultural production, causing the prices of related crops to soar, and coffee bean futures soaring to a nearly four-and-a-half-year high. News of the drought in Brazil quickly pushed up coffee futures. Prices of Arabica beans, favored by boutique cafes and premium brands, continued to rise, hitting their highest level in nearly seven years. Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer and its coffee production is critical to global supply. Analysts expect Brazil’s next year’s coffee bean harvest to fall by 5% to 10%, or even more, over the next two years, and the price increase brought about by the cut is a foregone conclusion.
Like coffee beans, the price of concrete release agent keeps going up.
What is concrete release agent?
Concrete release agent refers to a substance smeared on the construction formwork before concrete pouring, so that the formwork will not stick to the concrete surface after pouring, not easy to remove the formwork, or affect the finish of the concrete surface. Its main function is to form a film on the surface of the formwork and the concrete to separate them, so it is also called a release agent.
In view of the problems of easy rust in the storage of concrete products and formwork in the construction industry, air bubbles on the concrete surface, easy pollution on the concrete surface, and difficulty in demoulding and cleaning, it is recommended to use a high-efficiency concrete release agent, which is mainly composed of water-based polymer film-forming substances. The agent is prepared with a variety of active auxiliary agents through scientific processing technology. With stable product and superior performance, it is a high-performance concrete release material necessary for high-quality projects. Concrete release agent is applied to the construction formwork before concrete pouring, so that the formwork will not stick to the concrete surface after pouring, and it will not be easy to remove the formwork, or affect the finish of the concrete surface. Its main function is to form a film on the surface of the formwork and the concrete to separate them, so it is also called a release agent.
The main purpose of concrete release agent
Widely used in various steel formwork, wood formwork, bamboo plywood, plastic board and concrete countertops in concrete engineering construction.
Types of concrete release agents are divided by usage: internal release agent, external release agent.
Types of concrete release agents are classified according to their service life: conventional release agents, semi-permanent release agents.
According to form: solvent-based mold release agent, water-based mold release agent, solvent-free mold release agent, powder mold release agent, paste mold release agent.
Divided by use: die-casting release agent, rubber release agent, glass release agent, concrete release agent.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia’s energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the concrete release agent may keep rising.
