Customers’ main questions of PP formwork
  1. Q: We can use what kind of nails?(Do your company suggest any type of screw?)
    A: We recommend to use the ordinary steel nails or screws,it is same use way as plywood just no need oil.
  2. Q: Can I screwed up on this surface?How the nail-holding power of your product ?
    A: The method of using our PP formwork is as same as the plywood formwork.And our PP formwork nail-holding power is stronger than plywood formwork.
  3. Q: What is the length of the nail?
    A: We recommend that the length of the nail is two times of the PP formwork’s thickness .
  4. Q:If I want to cut PP formwork in order to make various sizes of formwork for  different  areas,is it easy to cut them to suit? What tools can I use to cut them?Can I use a normal circular saw to cut? Do I use a normal timber saw or is there a specific saw disc for it?
    A: The method of cutting Our PP formwork is as same as cutting plywood formworks,you can use normal circular saw and normal timber saw to cut it.For more convenient cutting, please use tungsten steel saw blade with over 80 meshes when you cutting the PP formwork.
  5. Q: What is the method of using PP formwork?
    A: The method of using PP formwork is as same as the plywood,the only thing we recommend that is using wooden or metal beam.
  6. Q:What is the separation distance of wooden or metal beam?
    A: To make the wall smooth,and there is no deformations,we recommend that the bottom of the wall’s metal beam central distance is 15-20cm,the middle of the wall’s metal beam central distance is 15cm, the top of the wall’s metal beam central distance is 18.75cm,(we usually use metal beam central distance is 15cm).The space between wood beams for a column should be not more than 100mm; the space between wood beams for a shear wall should be not more than 130mm; the space between wood beams for a roof should be not more than 200mm.
  7. Q:What is the fight against ability?
    A: Our production fight ability is very strong, you can see our test report, and we also provide free samples for your testing.We have tested, It is intact after a truck with 5 tons driving on.We have actually detected the strength of the PP formwork many times,it will not deformation when pouring the cement
  8. Q:What is the formwork service life?
    A:Lifetime of our formwork reaches 2 years, because of special processing with adding special material. After our experiment, it will not cracked after longtime shining.
  9. Q:If we want to add UV,is that ok?
    A:Yes,we can add UV,the price need add 1 USD/pc for small size formworks 1830mm*915mm,the price need add 2 USD/pc for big size formworks.
  10. Q:Will your formworks cause deformation ?
    A:Our PP formwork manufacturing process is all-in-one-shaped,the whole panel material is made of PP plastic alloy, so any parts of the PP formwork’s chemical and physical properties are the same. Because of this, when using it,they have no deformation,and the nail holding power is the same.The entire panel is waterproof and does not require a release agent. Although the other formwork the surface is flat, but their core material and surface material is different, that casing different coefficient of expansion. So other formwork can easily cause deformation.
  11. Q:Can the material withstand heavy load when placed flat on the wall?A:We have actually detected the strength of the PP formwork many times,it will not deformation when pouring the cement.
  12. Q:Can the material withstand  exposure to sunlight and other natural elements?
    A:In the actual use of the PP formwork,there are no problem that the PP formwork surface temperature
    reached 90 degrees Celsius.
  13. Q:Some of the big contractors here already have experience with plastic formwork (MCF Panel) the biggest problem for plastic formworks according to them is heat resistance.  The plastic formworks deforms and warps when heated and if placed directly under the sun.   Whether Beizhu PP formworks can withstand certain amount of heat and would not warp in case exposed to direct sunlight?
    A:MCF sheet is not entirely made of plastic,it middle is wood,then put on the plastic on the wood.Because of the plastic and wood material have different heat absorbing capacity, so MCF panel will be deformed easily.Our PP formwork is made entirely of plastic, it can avoid deformation effectively.We put our gray PP formwork on the sun exposure every day, and now our temperature at noon to reach 40 centigrade,the temperature  of the gray  formwork surface in the  50-60 centigrade.In the actual use of the PP formwork,there are no problem that the PP formwork surface temperature reached 60 degrees Celsius.The gray formwork is not deformed.The gray formwork is not deformed.
  14. Q:What about the reusable time of your formworks?
    A:Reusable times:80-100 times as our method of application.Our guarantee 80 times or two years.
  15. Q:What’s the temperature your PP plastic formworks can withstand?
    A:  -10℃ ~ +90℃
  16. Q: How many meters longest the formwork can do?
    A:Any length you wanted.We can customize different sizes. Generally 2440mm because this length is easy to load and transport.
  17. Q: How many meters for the most breadth formwork?
    A:1830mm
  18. Q: How to join the formworks?
    A:The same with formworks link,we use the wooden to nail the formworks together.If you still has any question about our products , please feel free to contact us.
