THE PRODUCT IN USE
What is Formtex?
Formtex® is a two-sided Controlled Permeability Formwork (CPF) liner, with a permeable side that allows water and air to pass through and a filter side, with a pore size designed to retain cement particles.
The main function of Formtex® CPF liners is to drain surplus water and air from the surface of freshly placed concrete during compaction. When water is drained, the water/cement (w/c) ratio in the concrete cover is reduced, which considerably improves the strength and durability of the concrete.
Concrete durability - which is critical to long-term performance of the structure - is one of the most important considerations in the complex design of new bridges, harbours and constructions.
Although all concrete in aggressive environments is likely to deteriorate to some extent, good durability retards the rate of deterioration. Fibertex has a thorough understanding of concrete durability, which is fundamental to cost effectiveness.
Below are Fibertex flyers that give an overview of the mechanisms that are most likely to cause concrete deterioration.
Long lifetime of concrete structures with Formtex®
Formtex® drains surplus water and air, providing for a denser concrete cover layer without blowholes. The result is increased resistance to degradation from penetration of chloride, water, carbon dioxide and frost/thaw.
