Make Every Paving Project Green with PlastiForm® CFS

No matter whether you’re a hands-on DIY concrete weekend warrior or a paving professional, the green factor is always at the forefront of your mind. No one wants to waste precious resources OR money on a project when they don’t have to, but where can you cut back?

How Green is Your Budget?

plastiform walkway combo smYou probably already know that a large part of every project budget is dedicated to raw materials, especially for concrete forming. But you have to ask yourself: how much are you spending on materials that will ultimately be thrown away?

What percentage of those concrete forming materials could be replaced with reusable, environmentally friendly alternatives that not only make your project a little greener, but easier on your budget too?

The PlastiForm® Concrete Forming System gives you the best of both worlds. High quality virgin HDPE boards that are rigid when you need straight lines, driveways and pavement – flexible when you’re working with loose and tight radiuses. They pay for themselves within a few uses, saving you time and money.

How Green Are Your Materials?

Maybe you’re working on a project that calls for a narrow strip of pavement or even a full circle driveway that demands large, perfect radiuses – either way, you’re going to need a form that works. Sure, you could use plywood and aluminum, but what if you want to stamp, stain or treat your concrete while it’s still in the form?

Shouldn’t your concrete forming system adjust to your needs, not the other way around? Why should you have to sacrifice design and functionality due to poor product performance? You shouldn’t, and that’s what makes PlastiForm® different.

How Green are PlastiForm® Boards?

Did you know that forming concrete can account for 20% of your budget, depending on the size of your project (even more, if you’re doing complex rays and radials)? It’s true!

  • Saves Time: Set up in minutes, not hours; pour and strip forms as soon as concrete won’t slump
  • Saves Fuel: Transport 1500 linear feet in a single load
  • Multipurpose: Use them for curbing, screeding and more
  • Easy to Recycle: Each board is made of virgin HQ HDPE and is USGBC and LEED certified
  • Lifetime Guarantee: Use each board hundreds if not thousands of times

Reusable, durable and completely recyclable, it’s easy to see why PlastiForm® Boards are quickly becoming the preferred concrete forming system for pavers and driveway projects everywhere.
