Formwork is a name given to mould in which concrete is kept. It is usually made up of timber, steel, aluminium, plastic and others. It should posses enough strength so that it can tolerate the weight of wet concrete without any distortion. Once the concrete gains enough strength, the formwork is removed or it can be kept as it is in case of permanent solution. In the upcoming years, the increase in expenditure on infrastructure development by government will augment the product demand. Also with the increase in commercial and residential sectors due to new construction and revamp of old sites, the demand for formwork is expected to increase.
