BOFU reusable plastic formwork is an easy and intuitive system of ABS formworks for building concrete walls, basements, columns. Compared with the traditional timber or steel systems, BOFU plastic formwork is handier, more cost effective and faster to set up, save time and labor charge.
BOFU plastic formwork has panels of various sizes, fastened together by means of fast-lock nylon handles. Thanks to the several possible panel combinations, and special inner and outer corner elements, the possible wall thickness goes from 10 to 40 cm.
The resuable plastic formwork - column panels are interconnected using the standard nylon locking handles. Each panel will require 9 handles.
The forming face has 6 parallel rows of fixing holes to allow the orthogonal connection of the panels in a "star" shape.
The rows are placed at a distance of 100/50mm the one from the other, allowing the forming of square and/or rectangular columns with side of 150 to 600mm.
The biggest panel of BOFU reusable plastic formwork is 120x60cm, weight only 10.5kg, which can be lift and set up by only one person easily, need no crane on the site.
Different size of reusable plastic formwork panels can be firmly locked by simply turn the special handles to 90 degree. The panels have rib on the back, which makes the system need not traditional wood blocks and nails.
The panels have holes to fit tie rod, guarantee the strength of the whole system.
The material of BOFU reusable plastic formwork is ABS which enable panels to hold high pressures.
The handles are made by high strength Nilon, each panel locked by at least 4 handls, which makes the whole system strong enough to pour 40cm walls.
The plastic formwork need not cut and nail due to the variety size, and nearly need no wood, the material can be recycled after broken, will not pollute the enviroment.
In propely use, the plastic formwork system can be reused about 100 times.
Concrete does not stick to plastic, thus the panels need no oil before using, and can be cleaned simply by water.
The surface of the wall which built by BOFU reusable plastic formwork is smooth, can be left without rework.
Walls and Corners
Using BOFU resuable plastic formwork, it is possible to pour up to 40cm thick and 3 meters highstraight walls one time.
Combining with special corners and compensation panels, right angle walls, three way T-walls and four way cross walls can be fomed easily.
Basin and Elevator Shafts
The low weight of BOFU reusable plastic formwork simplifies the pouring of tanks, basins and swimming pools in areas with limited or no access to heavy equipment.
BOFU reusable plastic formwork also ideal for elevator shafts as it can use without aid of crane, can make an easy, fast and precise job by hand.
Doors and Windows
To make doors and windows by BOFU reusable plastic formwork is simple, by inserting inside the formwork a wooden frame corresponding to the size of the opening needed, and then pour the walls with doors and windows.
Set Up Showing
1. assemble the formwork as described earlier leaving an opening in the panels where the wood plate has to be mounted. The space remaining will be panelled off by the wood plates (do not use the wood plate along or next to corners, but in a flat area, usually about halfway along the wall)
2. to keep the plates in place and prevent them from falling, fit the spacers and the tie rods in the plates' holes
3. mount the reinforcement bars on the tie rods, one for each stay (i.e. 4 each side for a 3.00m high formwork)
4. lock the reinforcement bar in place by fastening tight the win nuts, making sure the reinforcement bar is kept horizontal. At this stage the wood plates are blocked to the system
