Foundation contractors use aluminum forms to produce flat walls with no pillowing. Some claim to have used their forms for over 3,000 pours. Aluminum concrete forms require less expertise; a construction worker can use the forms after some basic instruction. Contractors claim that an experienced crew can strip, set and pour the “basic house” in just 8 hours. Ideal for mass-produced basic homes.
Some products due to their size and quantity may not be shippable via UPS.

Caution: Section 4.9.4 of ACI 303R-04, “Guide to Cast-in-Place Architectural Concrete Practice,” states that “Although aluminum [used in formwork] is nonporous, it often reacts chemically with fresh concrete to produce hydrogen gas, resulting in a possible bug hole problem.” The reaction is between unoxidized aluminum surfaces and calcium hydroxide released during cement hydration. Instead of producing bug holes, the hydrogen gas that is produced can form a veined pattern as it rises to the surface of the concrete.
