Formatube, which is manufactured by Sonoco, is a cardboard tube used to form concrete columns. Concrete is poured into the cardboard tube and allowed to set. Once the concrete has cured, the cardboard is then stripped away to reveal a very well-finished column. Formatube comes with a wax coating on the inside of the tube, and is available in sizes ranging from 250mm to 600mm in diameter. Formatube can also be used to construct concrete piles in the ground.
- Allcon sells Formatube in the following sizes: 250mm (choice of 3-metre and 4-metre lengths); 300mm (3-metre length); 350mm (3-metre length); 400mm (3-metre length); 450mm (3-metre length); 500mm (3-metre length), and 600mm (3-metre length).
- Formatube simplifies the construction of below-ground concrete piles, as soil collapses can be avoided after drilling.
