About EPI’s Concrete FORM Panel System
Extrutech Plastics’ FORM is a stay-in-place concrete form for 6 in. and 8 in. poured concrete walls. Each FORM panel is 2 ft. wide, 6 in. or 8 in. thick, cut to lengths of up to 24 ft. and shipped as a kit to your jobsite. Our FORM System features include:
- A double-locking spline
- Male/female interlocking joints
- Strong honeycomb interior walls (for maximum panel stability)
The Extrutech FORM panels lock together with an overlapping joint and use a double-spline E-Locking System that allows panels to be joined together without lifting one panel over another or sliding one panel down the edge of another. This unique locking system allows for exceptionally quick installation. In addition, Extrutech offers custom-cut panel kits up to 24 ft. for an enhanced and seamless installation that is efficient.
Extrutech FORM panels exhibit a professional, finished appearance, with a variety of colors–including white, beige, and gray–that never need to be repainted. The 2 ft. wide panels exhibit fewer seams for a more streamlined appearance. Extrutech Plastics’ concrete forms offer a broad range of benefits over more traditional installations, including:
- Water and corrosion-proof
- Panels will not rust, rot, or flake
- Resists mold, mildew, and bacteria growth
- Easy to clean with water and/or a mild cleaner
- Quick set up
- Protective peel-off film on both sides keeps panels clean during construction
- 15-year warranty
Cleaning & Maintenance Tips
Concrete wall forms are simple to clean and maintain. A regular maintenance and cleaning program will ensure that your panels continue to look brand-new for the duration of their service life.
Avoid the use of abrasive materials, such as detergents, chemicals, or hard brushes. If you are not sure whether something will abrade your panels, it is best to test a small area of the panel prior to cleaning. When choosing the correct cleaner, it is important to consider the following:
- Environment in which panels operate
- Hardness of water
- Whether grease or other materials may collect on the panel surface
- Soil type in the area
With a thorough understanding of the conditions to which the panels will be exposed, it will be easier to choose a cleaner that caters to your specific needs. Avoid caustic or solvent-based cleaners. Instead, choose a mild detergent or soap scum remover.
Regular maintenance is key to maintaining your concrete wall forms. Extrutech Plastics’ FORM panels are engineered with rigid, durable polymer that will retain its high gloss and original profile with adequate care. When cleaning, use a soft brush or damp cotton cloth. Panels can be treated using lime and soap scum removal products. However, be sure to test products that may be abrasive or corrosive.
For more heavy-duty cleaning and sterilization, low-pressure washers, low-heat water and steam cleaners can also be used.
