- Regular Cleaning: Begin by cleaning the PVC formwork after each use. Remove any concrete residue, dirt, or debris to prevent surface damage.
- Visual Inspection: After cleaning, conduct a visual inspection of the formwork panels. Look for any signs of damage, wear, or misalignment. Pay special attention to the edges and interlocking mechanisms.
- Repair or Replace Damaged Sections: If you find any damaged or worn sections, repair or replace them as needed. Use appropriate PVC repair materials or sealants to restore the integrity of the formwork.
- Store Properly: Store the PVC formwork in a dry, cool, and shaded area to protect it from UV radiation and temperature extremes. Storing it off the ground on pallets or racks helps prevent deformation.
- Protect from Chemicals: Avoid exposing the PVC formwork to harsh chemicals or solvents that could degrade the material. Store it away from potential sources of chemical damage.
- Prevent Stacking Weight: Do not stack heavy objects or materials on top of the formwork to prevent warping or deformation.
- Maintain Interlocking Mechanisms: Ensure that the interlocking mechanisms, if present, are in good condition and function properly. Lubricate them if necessary to maintain ease of assembly.
- Recheck Alignment: Before reusing the formwork, verify that the panels align correctly and securely during assembly. Misalignment can affect the quality of the concrete structure.
