Pecafil Stay-In-Place Formwork

From innovation and development to manufacture, Max Frank’s Pecafil Stay-In-Place Formwork system speeds up construction, improves build quality, reduces the need for skilled labour and saves you money.

The specially manufactured material is constructed from a steel mesh in a wide range of sheet and strip sizes and shaped to meet the application. Its distinctive yellow outer layer is heat-shrunk puncture resistant polyethylene, made from non-toxic, naturally occurring hydrocarbons.

Available independently of Fletcher Reinforcing’s steel offer or in conjunction with it, Pecafil Stay-In-Place Formwork is ideal for formwork on:

  • Strip foundations
  • Ground beams
  • Circular or complicated formwork
  • Pile caps

  • Possible to prefabricate off-site with reinforcing steel prior to delivery
