Ecoboard Logo Trademark

Ecoboard is a plastic hollow board primarily used as a formwork material for concrete casting. It is composed of polypropylene plastic which gives its high durability, smooth surface, high heat and water resistance properties. As an alternative to traditional wooden formworks, i.e. phenolic boards, Ecoboard saves both on construction cost, through its reusability; and time, through its workability. While this lightweight board can be used multiple times, increasing work productivity, it also has a wide array of applications such as lightweight partitions, modular cabinets and shelves.

FEATURES

cost saving

COST EFFICIENT & REUSABLE

Can be reused over 30x without difficulty. Cost is effectively lower compared to traditional wooden formworks.

easy to use 2

EASY TO USE & TRANSPORT

Formwork installation and removal is faster given the workability and lightweight properties of the plastic board, can be easily cut, nailed, screwed and drilled.

water moisture resist

WATER PROOF

High water resistance. No water absorption or bubbling even if left under wet conditions.

moisture resistant

SURFACE ABRASION RESISTANT

Surface is smooth and can withstand abrasion especially during stripping / dismantling after concrete is dried, thereby allowing a smoother concrete finish.

chemical resistant

HEAT / CHEMICAL RESISTANT

Suitable under a wide range of weather conditions (-10 to 90 deg C). Surface is resistant to chemicals and other substances that would otherwise damage traditional formworks.

ecofriendly

ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY

No toxic substances used to make the plastic board (lead, mercury, cadmium, etc).

minimal maintenance

MINIMAL MAINTENANCE

Can be stored over a long period of time without preventive maintenance. Surface is easily cleaned by washing in order for multiple use.
