What is a Cast-in-place Concrete Form Liner?
Cast-in-place form liners present a very cost-effective solution to decorative vertical concrete surfaces. Most of the time, the form liner is made of plastic or rubber and it can be used more than once. The goal of using a form liner is to give the surface of the concrete a certain texture, pattern, or design, which can be used for both aesthetic and practical reasons. For example, form liners can be used to make concrete look like wood, stone, or other natural materials. Cast-in-place concrete form liners are often used to build bridges and retaining walls.
Cast-in-place concrete is also good because it gives the structure a maintenance-free, aesthetic value. Cast-in-place concrete can also be made stronger and more stable by adding steel or other materials. This makes it a great choice for large or heavy highway structures.
