Creating Eye Appeal with Plastic Formliners

Plastic formliners reproduce the same intricately detailed texture each time, and work with a variety of different applications, including tilt-up, precast, and cast-in-place concrete to get the right results consistently.

Plastic formliners are made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, a thermoplastic polymer with no true melting point, and are available in numerous patterns that are undoubtedly better than concrete without integrated designs.

They can be reused about a dozen times depending on the pattern and jobsite conditions and are most suitable for projects when the appearance of joint lines is acceptable. Plastic formliners create a glossy finish and softens fine details into concrete for a long-lasting product that may not be as customizable as a urethane formliner. But is a great solution for basic patterns with long-lasting life and cheaper price point.
