Formtex is a fibre fabric which drains surplus water and air from the surface of freshly placed concrete. When water is drained off the surface, the water/cement ratio in the concrete surface is reduced improving the strength and durability of the concrete. It is used mainly to improve the technical properties of the concrete but can be used for aesthetic improvements also. Ideal for use on bridges, crash barriers, in marine environments and anywhere there is a requirement for a good aesthetic finish. Formtex is applied to the inside of shuttering by either mechanical tensioning or gluing. Form oil or release agents are not required.
