Composite forms for concrete from Sabic


Sabic has teamed up with Meccano de Mexico to create corrosion-resistant composite forms. The forms, made out of LNP Verton long glass-fibre reinforced composite, are designed to replace multi-piece steel forms.
According to Sabic, the composite forms reduce weight by 40%, cut cycle times from three hours to a few minutes and reduce overall construction costs for more-affordable housing.
Meccano's new forms are used to mould concrete panels for houses; on average, 500 panels are required for a typical house. The forms are available in a wide range of sizes and configurations: the average height is 1,100mm, and widths of 200mm, 300mm and 600mm are available.
