With the wet season and rain, plywood proved to be very ineffective, and the best type of plywood wouldn’t last more than 8 casts. Acrow A-Board provided the smart solution incorporated with Acrow Tech-Form Panels. The 19mm Boards were used in several locations to cast column walls, and other vertical construction elements. The concrete finish was exemplary, so smooth, and fair, due to the water impermeability of Acrow Board. Furthermore, the boards proved able to undergo 8 casts with no sign of deterioration or damage.

In appreciation of the product, the contractor purchased additional quantities that will be used in the cantilever carriage system that will be used in the Bridge.The product was delivered cut to length and color coded to facilitate the process of onsite use and to be ready for installation.
