Formtex® is mainly used for constructions in aggressive environments, where normal concrete does not deliver a satisfactory lifetime. Using Formtex® considerably extends the lifetime of concrete structures cast in aggressive environments.
The main applications of Formtex® CPF liner are listed below.
Marine structures are subject to an extremely aggressive environment. Mainly splash zones need special attention to ensure an acceptable lifetime for the construction as a hole. Formtex ensures a dense concrete cover to delay the ingress of aggressive elements significantly.
Bridges and tunnels
Bridges, tunnels and other road constructions suffer from tough conditions. Normal concrete deteriorates as a result of de-icing salts, freeze/thaw conditions and other aggressive elements. Formtex provides the crucial first line of defence needed to ensure a decent lifetime of these constructions.
