STAY-FORM® is an excellent product for forming bulkheads because it does not have to be stripped out after the concrete pour. (Plywood and modular forms have to be stripped.) There is also no scrabbling required in order to prepare the surface for the next pour.
Rebar or metal fabricated bracings are left in place – no stripping is required.
The sheets are lightweight and can easily be bent to form a keyway.
STAY-FORM® can be cut in order to accommodate any rebar or conduit penetrations.
- Visual inspection of the concrete consolidation is also accomplished due to the openings in the mesh.
Test reports prove that when forming bulkheads, STAY-FORM® provides 21% greater shear bond strength to concrete than does plywood.
