Select-grade, straight-grain wood reveal strips (also known as rustication or drip strips) /rustication drip strips and half-rounds create architectural detail for accentuating horizontal or vertical seams and joints in tilt-up, precast and cast-in-place construction. Wood reveals strips can also be used to create geometric patterns in concrete, either to accent or replace form liners at a much lower cost.
Application is easy. For cast-in-place construction, Select Wood Reveal Strips can be attached to wood cast-in-place forms with finish nails, staples or most any type of woodworking fasteners. For tilt-up casting beds, generally spray glue is used; silicone caulking and sometimes nylon nail-ins can be used on both ends of a strip to anchor it to a concrete slab during wet weather. For attaching to precast beds, use wood- and metal-approved glues along with silicone caulking along the edges. It also works best to use a good wood release agent to assist the release of the wood reveal from the finished cast element.
