Abstract:
The density of well-designed and compacted concrete directly reflects the density of the facing material of the formwork. Therefore, high-density plastics and high-density overlaid plywoods produce the most consistent concrete color, texture, and density over multiple uses providing a few do's and don'ts are considered. These do's and don'ts can be consolidated into the desire of all involved: designer, contractor and supplier, wanting to make it work and look good. All rules and regulations are worthless unless everyone involved wants to produce quality.
