Comparison of metal formworks

1,The price of metal formwork is much higher than plastic formworks.

2.Because of the heavy weight of the metal formworks,the builder need to rent cranes and other equipment.The rent fee is also big cost.

3.Because of the heavy weight of the metal formworks,the labor cost is higher,the speed of installation and speed of

demoulding is slow.

4.The metal formworks must be used in High - rise building, in order to reduce the use of costs.

If the floor number of the building is less than 30,we do not suggest to choose metal formworks.

5.Because of the re-usability,if use PP hollow plastic formwork to construct 30-storey high-rise,just need to purchase formworks for 3 storeys.

6.When use aluminum alloy formworks,the structural drawings and construction drawings must be very accurate,and need to design the size of formworks in advance,otherwise the size of formworks can not suitable for the project.

7.When using aluminum formwork ,size can not be modified,but plastic formwrk can be cut according to the requirements.

8. One-time investment of metal formwork is high, very expensive.

9.After using,the surface of concrete and aluminum had a chemical reaction, the concrete surface is smooth, but there will be some small bubbles.

10. Because there is no corrosion resistance,so the aluminium formworks cannot be used on construction basement.

Comparison of aluminum formworks

1.The aluminum alloy template must be used in standard high rise buildings, in order to reduce the use of costs (construction of a single building below 30 floors is not suggested, only if the phased construction).

2.Every thing must be very accurate whether in the design, or the needs of the owners of the structural drawings and construction drawings if using aluminum alloy template; in addition, size can not be modified; ( while plastic formwrk can be cut according to the need. )

3.One-time investment is high, very expensive.

4.The surface of concrete and aluminum will play a chemical reaction and the plate will not be smooth after several times. small bubbles appear.

5. Aluminum template is not available for the basement construction.

Customers' main questions of PP formwork :

1.Q: We can use what kind of nails?(Do your company suggest any type of screw?)

A: We recommend to use the ordinary steel nails or screws.

2.Q: Can I screwed up on this surface?How the nail-holding power of your product ?  

A: The method of using our PP formwork is as same as the plywood formwork.

And our PP formwork nail-holding power is stronger than plywood formwork.

3.Q: What is the length of the nail?

A: We recommend that the length of the nail is two times of the PP formwork's     thickness .


4. Q:If I want to cut PP formwork in order to make various sizes of formwork for  different  areas,is it easy to cut them to suit? What tools can I use to cut them?Can I use a normal circular saw to cut? Do I use a normal timber saw or is there a specific saw disc for it?

A: The method of cutting Our PP formwork is as same as cutting plywood formworks,you can use normal circular saw and normal timber saw to cut it.

For more convenient cutting, please use tungsten steel saw blade with over 80 meshes when you cutting the PP formwork.


5. Q: What is the method of using PP formwork?

A: The method of using PP formwork is as same as the plywood,the only thing we recommend that is using wooden or metal beam.


6. Q:What is the separation distance of wooden or metal beam.

A: To make the wall smooth,and there is no deformations,we recommend that the bottom of the wall's metal beam central distance is 10-15cm,the middle of the wall's metal beam central distance is 15cm, the top of the wall's metal beam central distance is 18.75cm,(we usually use metal beam central distance is 15cm).

The space between wood beams for a column should be not more than 100mm; the space between wood beams for a shear wall should be not more than 130mm; the space between wood beams for a roof should be not more than 200mm.


7. Q:What is the fight against ability?

A: Our production fight ability is very strong, you can see our test report, and we also provide free samples for your testing.We have tested, It is intact after a truck with 5 tons driving on.  

We have actually detected the strength of the PP formwork many times,it will not deformation when pouring the cement


8.Q:Is your formwork UV proof?

A:Lifetime of our formwork reaches 2 years, because of special processing with adding special material. After our experiment, it will not cracked after longtime shining.


9.Q:If we want to add UV,is that ok?

A:Yes,we can add UV,the price need add 1 USD/pc for small size formworks 1830mm*915mm,the price need add 2 USD/pc for big size formworks.


10.Q:Will your formworks cause deformation ?

A:Our PP formwork manufacturing process is all-in-one-shaped,the whole panel material is made of PP plastic alloy, so any parts of the PP formwork's chemical and physical properties are the same. Because of this, when using it,they have no deformation,and the nail holding power is the same.

The entire panel is waterproof and does not require a release agent.

  Although the other formwork the surface is flat, but their core material and surface material is different, that casing different coefficient of expansion.

So other formwork can easily cause deformation.


11.Q:Can the material withstand heavy load when placed flat on the wall.

A:We have actually detected the strength of the PP formwork many times,it will not deformation when pouring the cement.


12. Q:Can the material withstand  exposure to sunlight and other natural elements.

A:In the actual use of the PP formwork,there are no problem that the PP formwork surface temperature
reached 60 degrees Celsius.


13.Q:Some of the big contractors here already have experience with plastic formwork (MCF Panel) the biggest problem for plastic formworks according to them is heat resistance.  The plastic formworks deforms and warps when heated and if placed directly under the sun.   Whether Beizhu PP formworks can withstand certain amount of heat and would not warp in case exposed to direct sunlight?

 A:MCF sheet is not entirely made of plastic,it middle is wood,then put on the plastic on the wood.

Because of the plastic and wood material have different heat absorbing capacity, so MCF panel will be deformed easily.

Our PP formwork is made entirely of plastic, it can avoid deformation effectively.

We put our gray PP formwork on the sun exposure every day, and now our temperature at noon to reach 40 centigrade,the temperature  of the gray  formwork surface in the  50-60 centigrade.In the actual use of the PP formwork,there are no problem that the PP formwork surface temperature reached 60 degrees Celsius.The gray formwork is not deformed.

The gray formwork is not deformed.


14.Q:What about the reusable time of your formworks?

A:Reusable times:80-100 times.

Our guarantee 60 times or two years.


15.Q:What's the temperature your PP plastic formworks can withstand?

A:  -10 ~ +95


16.Q: How many meters longest the formwork can do?

A:Any length you wanted.But we suggest 2440mm,because this length is easy to load and transport.


17.Q: How many meters for the most breadth formwork?



18.Q: How to join the formworks?

A:The same with formworks link,we use the wooden to nail the formworks together.

If you still has any question about our products , please feel free to contact us.

Below is the key points about construction technique and safe operation:

1.Please avoid the peak of the heat when matching the mold. Then the effect after releasing mould is better.

2.When matching mould for column, beam and balcony, please use package pressure process.

3.Please place the PP formwork as flat as plywood formwork prevent the deformation after releasing the mould.

4.Please have your building workers skill trained when you use PP formwork first time. This is an essential part.

5.Method of use as well as wooden template , hollow plastic template reinforcement direction with batten direction placed in cross shaped.

6. No need to smear the mold release agent before using templates.

7.When cast-in-place the flat plate, spacing between the keels should be 20 ~ 25 cm, and the spacing between the wall plate and keel should be 10 ~ 20 cm.

8. The seam-line between templates should be taped.

9.The length of nail should not be too long, generally about 30 ~ 35 mm.

10.The strength to drive nails should be moderate.

11.When removing the formwork, should start from the small part of one end, the support and the plates should be removed at the same time aiming at preventing the template widespread drops, don't let the corner drop on the ground vertically.

12. The template accesses to be mixed used with wood veneer, bamboo veneer and other material plate.

Construction Operation:

1.When the hollow building template is used on the intersecting surface , it can be 14 mm thick, when used for transverse shear wall it should be 14 ~ 15 mm thick.

2. The distance between wood: (1) on the surface of the intersection wood square distance according to the thickness of the slab concrete, in general, if the thickness of slab concrete is less than 0.15 m ,the wood square distance  should be 250 ~ 300 mm.(2) the distance between wood of  the shear wall is adjusted by the height and thickness of the wall, for example, the wall is 2800 mm high and  300 mm thick, wood square distance should be 100 ~ 200 mm using a 14 mm thickness template, and be 150 ~ 250 mm with 15 mm thick planks of wood, if the shear wall, width of the pillar is thick more than 1 m, must add the fixed frame.

3. Between templates is normally should no space, but if the temperature difference is 5 ~ 10 , then should reserve 1 ~ 2 mm gap.

4. There shouldn't be gaps between the die shear wall and column puzzle, there must be wood square in internal Angle (the bottom of the wall) beam to insure the beam frame, wall and templates connect well. Shear wall formwork must be assembled into the whole piece before lifting, and then spread tablet, thus can reduce labor intensity, as well as improve the forming effect .

5. When nailing the template, the distance between the template edge and nail should be 15 ~ 30 mm, the strength of driving nail should be moderate, length of nails should be 30 ~ 35 mm, not too long or too short.

6.There must be a seam allowance for the wood in the beam bottom,make the wallboard stand on seam allowance of wood square, thus can ensure the leak leak not slurry and save wallboard material efficiently.

How to test the quality of plastic formworks?

Below are two easiest methods to test the quality of plastic formworks:

1.To test whether the formworks being out of shape and in a wave-like when laying in summer:

Put the plastic formwork sample in the 70℃ hot water for 5 min, wrench the mold to check if it would be softened. If so, the formwork is unvailable in summer.

2.To test whether the formwork would carck by pounding nails, break by removing in winter: put the plastic formwork sample in the fridge of 10 degrees below zero temperature for 24 hours, then nail at 10mm away from the edge of the mold, to check whether the formwork cracks. If so, the formwork is not available in winter.

The above tests is just to test the basic performance of plastic formworks. If the plastic formwork in your hand can not meet above test requirements, we suggest not to buy it.
