The formwork panel for the construction industry
alkus solid plastic panels have all the positive features of timber panels – but are much more durable. alkus solid plastic panels last as long as the panel formworks due to their moisture and abrasion resistance. More than 1,500 uses have been documented with the same composite sheet from alkus. Traditional plywood does not usually survive more than 50 concreting cycles.
This means: the initial extra costs compared to timber formwork panels are quickly recovered – and can have a positive impact on the value of your assets in the long term
Taking easy handling one step further
alkus solid plastic panels can be nailed, screwed and cut just like timber panels. They do not require special preservatives and can be cleaned using high-pressure washers (with up to 1,000 bar operating pressure) and rotary cleaners.
Permanent exposed concrete quality
alkus solid plastic panels are resistant to moisture; meaning they will therefore never swell, shrink, rot or become rippled. It also ensures that they can be used over and over again, providing the same smooth concrete surface every time. Due to the extremely smooth finish of the polypropylene surface (without a phenolic resin coating), undesired surface irregularities (ripples) and formwork-related discolouration are never a concern, not even when working to the highest exposed concrete standards.
