Specification of Plywood formwork manufactured by Zeman company
Resin bonded plywood sheets are attached to timber frames to make up panels of required sizes. The cost of plywood formwork compares favourably with that of timber shuttering and it may even prove cheaper in certain cases in view of the following considerations:
It is possible to have smooth finish in which case on cost in surface finishing is there.
By use of large size panels it is possible to effect saving in the labour cost of fixing and dismantling.
Number of reuses are more as compared with timber shuttering. For estimation purpose, number of reuses can be taken as 20 to 25.
