What is Octaform?
Octaform is the world’s most versatile concrete forming system. The stay-in-place, PVC forms reduce energy consumption and extend the life of high-performance concrete structures. It is ideal for the intense environments of digesters, aquaculture tanks, agriculture, dairy, water storage, and car washes; as well as for traditional buildings.
How Does it Work?
Simply put, Octaform is a stay-in-place, concrete forming system. Its closest comparison is to an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF). Long considered by contractors to be an effective, green building material, ICF’s provide excellent climate control and energy efficiency. Octaform provides all of these benefits and more.
Because the forming system stays in place, the concrete wall is finished when formed – in one step. This eliminates the need for chemical coatings required by conventional forming or cladding needed to finish ICFs. Also, Octaform is extremely versatile. Unlike with traditional ICFs (that are similar in shape to Lego blocks), forming curved walls is a snap with Octaform. Also, due to the innovative design, building time and costs are significantly reduced.
