Formtex® CPF liners are recommended for concrete structures in aggressive environments. Formtex® has been designed by Fibertex to improve the durability of the concrete structure, extend its service life and reduce total costs.
The main applications of Formtex® are marine structures, bridges and tunnels, drinking water tanks, sewage plants and settlement tanks.
Degradation of marine concrete structures is accelerated by aggressive elements, like salt water, high temperatures and increased C02 levels in the air.
Formtex® provides a dense and strong concrete cover, which is free of blowholes - significantly extending service life of the structure.
Bridges and roads
Bridges, tunnels and other road constructions suffer from tough environmental conditions.
Concrete used in the construction of structures deteriorates as a result of de-icing salts, freeze and thaw conditions. Concrete is also affected by aggressive elements, like salt water, elevated temperatures and increased C02 levels in the air.
Formtex® CPF liners provide concrete surface enhancement to ensure maximum lifetime of constructions and to reduce maintenance costs.
Drinking water applications
Mechanical resistance of concrete in drinking water tanks is imperative, as the concrete face is subjected to regular high-pressure jet-washing.
Formtex® reduces biological growth, eliminates the use of slip agents and provides an abrasion-resistant concrete surface that is easy to clean. Formtex® is certified according to German regulations for concrete structures for drinking water applications.
Sewage plants and settlement tanks
Chemical and mechanical resistance of concrete structures of sewage plants and settlement tanks is critical.
The concrete face, which is in constant contact with wastewater, needs to withstand the penetration of aggressive substances and endure high-pressure cleaning procedures.
