What is aluminium formwork?

- May 23, 2017 -

Aluminum Formwork, full name is the construction aluminum alloy formwork system. It is a new generation formwork support system which appears after film faced plywood formwork and bamboo formwork and steel formwork. The application of aluminum formwork system in the construction industry which has improved the whole construction efficiency in the construction industry, Aluminium formwork improve not only including the construction material cost, but also the manual arrangement has greatly saved.


Aluminum form work system is a building formwork made by aluminum alloy, which solves the defects of traditional formwork and greatly improves the construction efficiency. Aluminum formwork designs and develops the construction applications for both low rise and high rise building, is a big development in the construction industry.


Since 1962, the aluminium formwork system firstly used in the United States, with 50 years of application history. Now, in the United States, Canada, South Korea and other developed countries, as well as many developing countries and new industrial countries, for instant Mexico, Brazil, Malaysia, India, the form work have been widely used too.


The widely use of Aluminium formwork is a big step for construction industry, it doesn't increase the effiecincy only for the industry but also save materials, money, human resource labor and time. With good quality of the construction site, Aluminum formwork will be more and more used in building in future.


The modular aluminum formwork gives the builders working on an integrated prefabricated great for creating a wide range of products. This method of formwork is a new option for housing projects, generating efficiency, productivity and savings. On the other hand, this system panel allows in one day to empty walls and concrete slabs simultaneously due to its vacuum cycle, which also provides insurance earthquake resistant behavior.

The forms, have the function to the concrete as planned, providing stability as fresh concrete to ensure the protection and the correct placement of reinforcement.

– Is monolithic. It means that one day you can build the walls of the facade, interior walls and the slab of a home.
– It’s faster than any system because it is lightweight, easy to transport and manually assemble and disassemble.
– It’s versatile and modular. It has the flexibility to adapt to any shape.
– Labor-less specialized, as the system is very simple and few parts.
– Less cost, finishes, it leaves a better finish, with no “belly” or textures to hide.
– It keep the dimensions and geometry of the housing retaining angles 90 °.

The modular aluminum formwork system allows the builders gain high speed with all the security and all types of design.The construction of concrete formwork system using modular is capable of orderly progress, progressive, fast and with quality. Keep the job clean and balanced and easy inventory control.

Using aluminum formwork system significantly reduces the time compared to the traditional system.

The  aluminum formwork  system is the most versatile on the market. The quality of materials used make it very durable and lightweight, allowing a long life and easy on the ability to exploit and transport manually, without a lot of weight equipment.

Aluminium formwork can be used reused  more times  with careful handling and good maintenance. One of the biggest advantage of aluminium formworks has its unsur- passed construction speed. Compared to conventional construction procedures, use of aluminium formworks reduces floor completion cycle from 15 days to 4 to 5 days, primarily because of light weight nature enables fast erection and dismantling and simple system of pin & wedge makes the assembly easier. Pouring concrete together for walls, beams and floors and System ensures accuracy of dimensions without need for re-work and uncomplicated system  requiring use of minimum skilled labour.

The aluminum formwork system is the solution that guarantees the monolithic casting of all vertical and horizontal elements, reducing the construction phase of  the structure of any building.
