Let us dive deep into the world of Construction and how Plastic Formwork changes everything.
- HTC Ghana is the first and only company to bring the amazing MEGFIN Plastic Formwork to Ghana.
- Plastic Formwork is a patented product with “Energy saving, Environmental protection, and Low carbon economy” advantages.
- Mainly used in Construction projects, Water conservancy projects, Hydropower projects, Bridges, Tunnel engineering, etc.
- Gradually Plastic Formwork will replace Plywood and Bamboo panels.
- We contribute to the formwork industry in Ghana to make the construction business easy, fast, and cost-effective.
Following are the Advantages of MEGFIN Plastic Formwork:
- Non- Corrosive.
- It bends like Beckham.
- Amazing nail-holding power.
- Easy to clean and maintain.
- Energy-saving & environmentally friendly.
- Lightweight, High hardness, wear resistance, impact resistance.
- The surface is smooth, bright, and clean. The concreting and forming effect is excellent.
- There is no absorption of moisture, hence it is waterproof. There is no deformation, and no mildew, long-term stratification of water during immersion No bubbles, sheets size stability, particularly designed for damp and underground conditions.
- Good durability. It can be used to create cambered formwork in a special-shaped shape.
- Resistance to acid and alkali; anti-corrosion; highly appropriate for engineering applications in areas along the coast, mines, and seawalls. It is not necessary to use any preservation treatment at all, both when storage and use of the formwork. They do not affect the concrete surface.
- The reusable life can go over 60-fold. This is a lengthy service duration.
- Recycling waste materials is possible and reused, allowing full use of the waste material. This feature can significantly lower the cost of construction in comparison to wooden as well as bamboo forms.
- Energy-saving and environmental protection Zero pollution. There is no harmful or poisonous gas.
- Demould quickly. It is not necessary to brush release agents simply tap, the formwork will be removed. Cut down on the duration of work and accelerate the construction schedule effectively. No Demoulding agent is required.
- It is easy to process. Drilling, sawing, and nailing are all possible. Formworks can be integrated horizontally or vertically. Easy to cut and install. Improves installation and Removal efficiency by 40%.
- It is easy to take off. Removal is quick, easy, and safe. The support is easy to use, beneficial for the construction of the company which can improve the timeline for construction.
Material for the product: Polypropylene
- This material can be described as Polypropylene.
- The melting point could be up to 167 degree Celsius.
- The softening temperature is 150 degree Celsius.
- The most corrosion-resistant, heat-resistant products are made with polypropylene just like MEGFIN PP Plastic Formwork.
- Offers a greater impact strength. The strength of impact increases with the growth of the amount of ethylene.
- The surface hardness, as well as scratch resistance, is excellent.
Why MEGFIN PP Plastic Formwork is the best choice for your construction business:
Hollow plastic formwork is weather-resistant, so rain and shine are no longer an issue.
LIGHTWEIGHT & HIGH-PRESSURE BEARING
It’s lighter and easier to carry and relieves workers from the stress of heavy work.
It is a manual operation, and no crane is required to reduce 20% of labor cost than plywood.
NO MAINTENANCE FOR SURFACE
High-pressure water jets flush the plastic template.
However, the formwork made of metal requires surface maintenance.
Easy to use, works well using a nail, saw or drill, cut, etc.
Compatibility with various other substances, such as aluminum, steel, and wood.
One Set of formwork can finish a WHOLE high-rise building with 2×35 floors Save 60% of your budget compared to metal formwork and plywood!
Formwork made of PP Plastic:
Reuse for 60 to 100 times; costs USD 0.5 per use.
Costs USD 3-5 per use.
Formwork made of Metal:
The risk of a single investment is massive.
Resistance to high temperatures:
The substance is Polypropylene. The melting point is up to 167 degrees Celsius. The softening temperature is 150 degrees Celsius.
Installation method with PP Plastic Formwork:
Let’s consider 1220*2440*18mm as a sample size.
PHASE 1: SLAB
- The distance between the supports is determined by how thick the concrete slab is.
- In general, when they are thicker than 200mm, the distance between the supports will be 300mm to 400mm.
PHASE 2: WALL
- The spacing of the frame is determined by the thickness and height of the wall.
- Using the wall’s height of 2800mm and wall thickness of 300mm for one example.
- The space of the formwork will be 200-250 millimeters.
- If the wall’s width exceeds 1 millimeter, the frame should be strengthened.
PHASE 3: COLUMN AND BEAM
- There are no gaps when splicing forms for wall shear and column formwork.
- And the positive aspect (Wall bottom) section must have support for a beam that is a convenient wall, formwork, or wall connection.
- Wall and column-supporting formwork can be joined to form a block, and then erected, after which you can place the slab this manner, the work intensity of the workers is decreased, and the effect of molding will be more effective.
PHASE 4: NAIL
- When you drive a nail onto forms, it is recommended that the space to an edge to the surface of the work should be 15 to 30 millimeters.
- Its length will generally be adequate to 40-50mm.
I Beams are also known as H beams:
|Product Name:||Plastic I beam|
|Raw Material:||Polypropylene Resin|
|Specification:||40x80mm, length can be customized|
|Product Performance:||Lightweight, high strength, waterproof and Resistant, No absorption of moisture, no deformation, no mildew|
|Reuse time:||More than 60 to 100 times reusable|
|Application:||All building support systems|
|Easy to operate:||Sawing, drilling, and nailing are all available.|
|Operation Instruction:||When nailing, the distance from I beams edge should be 15-30mm, the strength should be moderate, 40-50mm of the length of nails is better.|
1. What is FORMWORK?
Formwork refers to an arrangement of wood boards and bolts or other items. that are used to form reinforced concrete or similar materials as it sets. It’s also referred to as shuttering. The formworks are made from metal, such as aluminum or steel, however, the latest breakthrough material has replaced that is plastic.
2. What is Plastic Formwork made of?
Plastic formwork is made of polypropylene. Formwork made of plastic is extremely light forms as compared to wooden panels that are traditionally used. Additionally, concrete does not stick to plastic formwork. Every piece can be cleaned using a small amount of water.
3. What is PVC Formwork?
The PVC Wall System is made from Polyvinyl Chloride which is concrete-filled and acts as sacrificial formwork for concrete walls. It consists of a number of outer sides and edges with interlocking central link panels that join the faces prior to concrete core filling. PVC Formwork is not recommended for construction work.
