In 1962, aluminum formwork was developed as a new type of construction material. The aluminium formwork is used in US., Canada, Europe, HK, Macau, India, Malaysia, South Korea, Brazil, and Vietnam after more than 50 years of development. In our country, however, the application of aluminum formwork is relatively new. As compared to other formworks, Alumnus alloy formwork has many advantages with Column Formwork.
Construction is easy and effective
It is simple and convenient to assemble aluminum alloy formwork; the average weight is 23-24 kg / m2. Without any machinery assistance, it can complete assembly by hand. (Normally, construction workers only need to assemble or remove a spanner or a small hammer). 20-30 square meters per day can be constructed by a professional installation worker (compared with the wooden formworks, aluminum formworks do not require technicians, but a basic training before installation for construction workers).
It can be used frequently with a low average cost of use
The integral extrusion formation as raw materials (6061-T6) is adopted by the aluminum alloy formwork system with Formwork System manufacturers in India. A collection of shapes can be used more than 300 times with a normative design at a low average cost of use.
Construction time savings
The aluminum alloy formwork system is a quick system of assembly and removal that shortens the construction cycle and saves administration costs. Under normative architecture with Drop Head System, a collection of shapes can be constructed on one floor every four days.
Aluminum alloy shaping is best used in areas such as walls, horizontal floors, columns, pillars, steps, window sills, floating plates, etc.
High Salvage Value
When scrapped as waste, the salvage value of the aluminum alloy formwork scheme is very high.
No construction Garbage on site
All aluminum alloy formwork components are reusable, and once the formwork has been removed, there is no waste on-site to ensure that the building environment is safe, clean, and tidy.
The forming of the aluminum alloy construction has various standard sizes and is versatile to install according to the project specifications. If the formwork is reused for another new project and the cost is reduced, only 10-15% of the non-standard board needs to be replaced.
Reduction of low carbon emissions
Many developed countries have already stipulated that wooden shapes, however renewable shapes, can not be implemented in building projects.
Convenient support system
Conventional formwork construction technology construction methods such as the floor, the platform typically require complete framing with higher costs, while the support bars of Slab Formwork for the aluminum template are comparatively smaller (1350 mm spacing between each individual support), thus providing larger workspace, staff access, simple site management of material handling.
The surface effect of concrete after removal of the formwork
after removal of the aluminum alloy shaping, the consistency of the concrete surface is smooth and effectively meets the requirement for finished and exposed concrete. There is no need for plastering, and the cost of plastering is also saved.
