The plastic formwork system is made up of a specific grade of plastic, neither placing any attached material nor chemical reaction between the poured material and the plastic formwork, therefore, the surface of the reinforced concrete element will not have any spots.
Due to the perfect adaptability of each part of the system, the leakage of water or newly poured concrete from different parts is avoided. In addition, it is the most labor-saving system because it is not only easy to install and insert, but also light-weight compared to other formwork systems.
There is no need to nail and lubricate the board before pouring concrete, because the automatic leveling of the plugging system can automatically level the board, so compared with the traditional formwork system, the time spent during installation and disassembly is reduced.
In addition, the plastic template can be easily washed with water after use. If it breaks due to improper handling, it can be sealed with a low-pressure hot air gun.
Other formwork materials (such as wood, steel, aluminum) will have various disadvantages, which may exceed their benefits. For example, the use of wood is quite expensive and has a major impact on the environment due to deforestation.
For plastic formwork, it can be used many times. However, because the plastic formwork price is higher than some other types of formwork, it is an unsuitable choice in many cases. In contrast, plastic formwork can be recycled, in addition to reducing processing time and improving reusability indicators, it is also environmentally friendly.
