Octaform launches new product for watertight, airtight, and foodsafe concrete construction
Octaform Systems Inc. announced the launch of a new wall panel for use with its stay-in-place PVC Finished Forming System.
The product, called SNAPLockTight, extends Octaform’s construction capabilities into biomass to energy production and foodsafe manufacturing and processing applications. The company has been a supplier of concrete forming solutions to the agriculture, aquaculture, and industrial/commercial industries for over 12 years.
President of Octaform Systems Inc., Dave Richardson, says the development of SNAPLockTight was a natural product extension for the company.
“We pride ourselves on our one step, one system philosophy. Our products are designed to integrate a number of the processes involved in concrete construction. SNAPLockTight enhances our Finished Forming System by combining the steps of concrete forming and foodsafe or corrosion protection finishing into one system,” he says.
The Octaform Finished Forming System can also incorporate insulation between SNAPLockTight wall panels and the concrete structure for increased energy efficiency.
Mr. Richardson believes the potential for SNAPLockTight is significant, especially within highly corrosive or foodsafe environments.
“Due to the durable nature of SNAPLockTight’s rigid PVC construction, we’ve eliminated the ongoing recaulking or relining of walls or tanks that’s been the standard in these industries for many years.”
These maintenance costs can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on the size of the facility or tank.
“For example, we can often provide a completely new tank, with the durability to be virtually maintenance free for the life of the structure, for significantly less than the cost of a single recoating of epoxy paint,” says Mr. Richardson.
