Conaform

  • Sacrificial formwork for sand/poor ground conditions

About

Conaform is a formwork material made from a flat steel wire mesh, with a “yellow” heat-shrunk layer of polyethylene applied to both sides of the mesh.

Advantages

  • Easy to handle on site using non-specialist labour - reduces construction costs
  • No lifting equipment is required because Conaform is light and flexible
  • Back fill can be completed before concrete is poured, minimizing safety risks on site
  • No need to strip formwork after concrete has been cured
  • Quick assembly. No hammer, nails or saws – only tie-wire is needed
  • Formwork can be pre-formed in at factory into virtually any module size/shape required and arrives at site ready for installation
  • Supplied as flat sheets – can be cut and fabricated on site, as required
  • Versatile - perfect for difficult radius applications
  • Lost formwork – no need to excavate a large working space and then refill it later on
  • No need to clean or to return the formwork
  • Non-polluting, non-toxic, and recyclable

Applications

  • The strength and versatility of Conaform make it the particularly useful for the following applications.
  • Ground beams
  • Footing and bases
  • Pile caps
  • Construction joints (stop ends)
  • Special shapes or curves
  • Void formation
