All benefits at a glance Benefit of the following advantages of the alkus® solid plastic panel

Profitable for years to come

alkus® solid plastic panels enable up to 1,000 uses –that is twenty times more than many timber panels and up to four times more than many other plastic panels.

Easy to repair without any loss of quality

Scratches, holes or perforations: alkus® solid plastic panels can be repaired quickly and easily using identical material. This means: the unique repair solution helps to retain the technical properties of the panels – there are no vulnerable weak spots!

Versatile: rigid yet flexible

alkus® solid plastic panels are rigid but can be bent, shaped and formed quite easily. This ensures the simple production of special concrete forms – curves, corners and even trapezoidal shapes.

Easy to handle

alkus® solid plastic panels can be nailed, screwed and cut just like timber.

Quick and easy panel cleaning

alkus® solid plastic panels can be cleaned quickly and easily after application – even using a high-pressure washer with up to 1,000 bar / 14.000 psi operating pressure.

Top quality exposed concrete

alkus® solid plastic panels enable perfect element joints and excellent concrete surfaces corresponding to exposed concrete classifications.

Panel size

Thanks to the continuous production process and the fact that alkus® panels are weldable, alkus® solid plastic panels can, in contrast to timber and other plastic panels, be supplied in any size and shape to meet requirements.

Panel thickness

alkus® provides panel thicknesses for each application. The available panel thicknesses and further information can be found in the technical data.

Sustainable

alkus® solid plastic panels are extremely durable, can be repaired without loss of quality and require less change than plywood – environmental friendly and ecologically.

Your cost advantage with alkus®: {[{ (((data.thirdPartyPrice / data.thirdPartyAmount).toFixed(2) / (data.currentProduct().price / data.currentProduct().amount).toFixed(2)) * 100 - 100).toFixed(0) }]}%

You save {[{ ((data.thirdPartyPrice / data.thirdPartyAmount) - (data.currentProduct().price / data.currentProduct().amount)) | currency }]} per use and m². Which means that your currently used formwork skin is around {[{ (((data.thirdPartyPrice / data.thirdPartyAmount).toFixed(2) / (data.currentProduct().price / data.currentProduct().amount).toFixed(2)) * 100 - 100).toFixed(0) }]}% more expensive than alkus®.

On top of the initial investment on alkus® solid plastic panels there are as on other formwork skins also maintenance costs. This is why it is not considered separately in the calculation.
 

Your advantages at a glance

Profitable for years to come
The alkus® solid plastic panel enables more than 1,000 uses – that is twenty times more than many timber panels and up to four times more than many other plastic panels. This results in a lot less re-panelling requirements.

 

More resistant than timber
The alkus® solid plastic panel is resistant to UV rays and moisture. It neither swells nor shrinks, meaning there are no irregularities (ripples) on the panel surface. Delamination, which can occur at timber panels due to surface damage, is also not possible.

 

Easy to repair without any loss of quality
Scratches, holes or perforations: The alkus® solid plastic panel can be repaired quickly and easily using identical material. This means: The unique repair solution helps to retain the technical properties of the panel. Easy removal and replacement of damaged panel sections as opposed to the costly acquisition of whole new ones.

 

Panel sizes and thicknesses for every application
alkus® solid plastic panels are manufactured in a continuous production process and are available in various widths and thicknesses. Furthermore, several panels can be skilfully welded together in the workshop or even directly on-site to produce panels of every shape and size.

 

Easy to handle and process
The alkus® solid plastic panel can be nailed, screwed and cut just like timber.

 

Quick and easy panel cleaning
The alkus® solid plastic panel can be cleaned quickly and easily after application – even using a high-pressure washer with up to 1,000 bar / 14,500 psi and a rotary nozzle.

 

Top quality exposed concrete
The alkus® solid plastic panel enables perfect element joints and excellent concrete surfaces corresponding to exposed concrete class SB4. In contrast to timber panels, there is no formwork-related discolouration of the concrete surface due to a phenolic resin coating.

 

Versatile: rigid yet flexible
The alkus® solid plastic panel is rigid but can be bent, shaped and formed quite easily. This ensures the simple production of special concrete forms – curves, corners and even trapezoidal shapes. The elasticity modulus remains unchanged throughout the entire life cycle.

 

Greener than timber
The alkus® solid plastic panel can be recycled 100%. Furthermore, its use demands far less formwork oil.

 

alkus® is the only form skin covered with a 7 years long-term guarantee
  • against rotting
  • against ripplings
  • against discoloration
  • on bending stiffness
  • on UV resistance
