Construction is an intricate process that requires careful planning and the right materials. One such critical aspect is shuttering or formwork. At Rajratan Industries, we are committed to providing the best in class shuttering solutions. In this blog post, we delve into some frequently asked questions about shuttering.
What board is best for shuttering?
The choice of shuttering board depends on several factors including cost, durability, and project requirements. Plywood boards are often preferred due to their cost-effectiveness, versatility, and easy availability. They are strong, resilient, and can easily withstand the pressures of concrete casting. At Rajratan Industries, we offer top-quality plywood boards for your shuttering needs.
What is Mivan shuttering?
Mivan shuttering, also known as aluminium formwork, is a revolutionary construction technology. It comprises a series of lightweight, robust, and durable aluminium panels that are easy to handle and require less labor. This method allows for faster construction and delivers a high-quality finish with excellent dimensional accuracy.
Which is better RCC or Mivan?
Both Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) and Mivan have their own advantages. RCC, being a traditional method, offers flexibility in design and is suitable for buildings with unique architectural features. Mivan, on the other hand, is faster and more efficient, making it ideal for mass housing projects. The choice between the two depends on the project’s specific needs and requirements.
What is Mivan full form?
Mivan is actually an acronym for the name of the company that introduced this formwork system – Mivan Company Ltd from Malaysia. Over time, it has become synonymous with aluminium formwork technology.
Which oil is used in shuttering?
Shuttering oil, also known as formwork oil or mould oil, is used to prevent the concrete from sticking to the formwork, making it easier to remove once the concrete has set. It also helps in preserving the shuttering board and extending its lifespan. Commonly used shuttering oils include mineral oils, vegetable oils, and special chemical compounds.
