In What Ways Is Plastic Template Superior To Wood Formwork?

May. 06, 2020

First, environmental protection and energy conservation

Plastic Formwork: It is a composite material extruded at a high temperature of 200 ° C. It is an energy-saving and green product. It is based on recyclable plastics. After repeated use for more than 50-100 times, the factory recycles at a high price, and there is no waste of resources. For the engineering parties used, it not only spreads the cost but also effectively protects the environment.

Wood formwork: taken from the forest, the construction industry booming period, the massive use of wood formwork, the damage to forest resources is amazing, and after 8-10 times, it can only be scrapped.

Second, light, safe and fast

Plastic formwork: The mold has a complete installation method, and a standardized system installation training will be carried out for the construction workers, so that they can strictly follow the systematic construction, perform their duties, step by step, and will not waste the labor and material costs. Moreover, the mold is extremely light, and with the template accessories such as the Formwork Tie Rod System, there is basically no safety hazard.

Wood formwork: rough workmanship, messy assembly process, no systematic installation method, construction workers are assembled by feeling, there is a slight relocation of some places, waste manpower and material cost; and the wooden formwork is everywhere after the assembly They are all stumped wood chips, and construction workers may have safety hazards if they are careless.

Third, the quality is reliable

Plastic template: The plastic mold has passed the national patent certification, and the composite material extruded through high temperature 200 °C has high impact and corrosion resistance, is not easy to be deformed, and can withstand exposure of nearly 80° without affecting the construction progress. It will not cause too much impact on it, and workers can work as usual.

Wood formwork: It is not resistant to abrasion and corrosion. It can only withstand exposure to temperatures of up to 40°, and after it is washed by rain, the surface of the formwork will become extremely smooth and affect the construction progress.

Fourth, the number of turnover

Plastic template: The number of mold turnover is 50-100 times, and the construction efficiency of the same workload is more than 10 times that of the wood mold.

Wood formwork: The turnover rate of the wood formwork is about 20 times. It is still necessary to ensure that it works under normal weather. If it is exposed to sunlight or rain, it will take up to 10 times of turnover.

Certainly many people will ask, since the advantages of plastic templates are much stronger than wooden templates, why is the application of wood templates stronger than plastic templates in China? Let's look at two very important issues. The plastic formwork is a new type of building material, and the promotion is insufficient. The plastic formwork was developed and launched in recent years. The combination of technology and practice, continuous improvement of technology, iterative products, follow-up promotion efforts have not kept up, so there are not many people who know Naturally, there are fewer people to use; at first glance, it seems that the mold is more expensive than the wood mold. On the contrary, the mold looks like the purchase price is higher than the wooden template, and the wooden template now has a market price between 40 yuan and 50 yuan, while the plastic template About a price of about 170 yuan, about three times the difference, so many construction units feel too expensive. But they did not see that the mold can be reused up to 100 times, it is not considered other hidden costs, the share is 2 yuan / square meter, the wood mold is 7-9 yuan / square meter, the cost of mold use only It is a quarter of the wooden mold.

Nowadays, in order to meet more construction needs, plastic formwork has begun to be used, and its advantages are mainly reflected in the number of turnovers can reach more than 30 times, and can be recycled. The temperature adapts to a large range, the specifications are adaptable, and it can be sawed, drilled and used conveniently. The flatness and smoothness of the surface of the template exceeds the technical requirements of the existing fair-faced concrete formwork, and it has the functions of flame retardant, anti-corrosion, water resistance and chemical corrosion resistance, and has good mechanical properties and electrical insulation properties. It can meet the requirements of various rectangular, square, L-shaped, and U-shaped architectural formwork. Plastic formwork is therefore widely used in the construction industry.
