Concrete formwork with Pfleiderer:

The best that can happen to concrete

Concrete formwork material is extremely challenged – in terms of strength, moisture resistance and surface quality. Our wood-based panels prove themselves to be precedent-setting under the hardest use conditions and if necessary, ensure the optimum look of the construction elements.

The advantages of cast in situ concrete construction can only be consistently used in practice with the right formwork. Achieving the desired shape, surface properties and evenness calls for highquality, robust and tough wood-based materials. Pfleiderer’s formwork panels make an important contribution to this as they can be worked precisely and used flexibly – and can also reliably withstand the demanding conditions on building sites.

• Available as raw board or as melamine faced
• Optimised for cutting, as it can be used in any direction

Uncompromisingly good:

At Pfleiderer quality has a system

You can rely on security and transparency.
Producing wood-based materials sustainably and in the highest quality is a challenge. As a leading company in the wood industry, Pfleiderer faces up to this challenge at all levels – and with traditional entrepreneurial diligence. With modern production sites, an integrated management system for quality, environment, energy and safety, and a corporate culture that continuously develops these values. Because for us, the compatibility of quality and sustainability is a matter of course!

In concrete terms, this means that we certify our processes throughout the entire value chain – often far beyond what is legally required. We attach great importance to being as transparent as possible for our customers and partners. Our environmental management systems at our locations are certified according to DIN ISO EN 14001 and ISO 50001. Also we belong to the Quality Association for Wood-based Panels and have certifications according to FSC® (License Code: FSC® C011773) and PEFC (License Code: PEFC/04-32-0828). And if you want to know more, just contact us. We will be happy to give you detailed information!

Designed for a future worth living:

Sustainability at Pfleiderer

Responsibility for tomorrow starts today.
Those who rely on wood as a raw material rightly expect an environmentally conscious “green” material. We at Pfleiderer want to do full justice to this and have therefore been offering an extensive range of low-emission and environmentally friendly products for many years. Sustainability – in addition to ecological, social and economic aspects – as well as careful use of natural resources are permanent pillars of our corporate philosophy. Consistent recycling management and wood recycling ensure that no trees are felled for our products. Through regular independent evaluation of our procurement and production processes, we are able to ensure that we are able to offer our customers the best possible service, manufacturing and logistics processes as well as a corporate culture of accountability. We ensure that you can use our products with a clear conscience and recommend them to your customers. 

A healthy full range of products.
Pfleiderer focuses on low-emission materials, e.g. F**** glued panels for interior design or LivingBoard with formaldehyde- free gluing. Many of our board materials have been awarded the Blue Angel for a healthy indoor climate for many years. At the beginning of 2020, we succeeded in obtaining this award – in addition to raw boards and directly coated products – also for large parts of the HPL range. This means that you can also fall back on a consistently sustainable full product range for demanding projects – and fulfil customer wishes without compromising on ecology and sustainability.

Through multi-stage wood utilisation (so-called cascade utilisation), wood recycling, and the use of forestry wood and industrial waste wood for high quality materials with a long service life, Pfleiderer conserves valuable resources and actively contributes to reducing carbon emissions, air, water and soil pollution and energy consumption. We control the wood mix individually, depending on the product, to achieve a perfect balance between quality requirements and resource conservation.

Pfleiderer Decoboard:

The best basis for precision craftsmanship

Due to its melamine coating on both sides and moisture resistant amino resin bonding, Pfleiderer's DecoBoard is an excellent choice for formwork construction. As the panels are extremely isotropic, they can be used with minimum off-cut waste. Their homogeneous surface also makes them suitable for exposed concrete areas. A special barrier finish ensures that they do not affect the setting and hardening behaviour of the concrete. DecoBoard is available in Class P3, Class P5 as well as Class P7, in other words for all static pressure requirements – even if the formwork panels are used repeatedly.

Areas of application

  • Ideally suitable as formlining
  • Suitable for fair-faced concrete

Properties

  • Moisture resistant
  • Low thickness and edge swelling
  • Special impregnation of the facing

Advantages

  • Multiple use (re-use) possible
  • No effect on the curing performance of concrete due to special impregnation
  • Cutting waste optimisation due to isotropic strength properties
  • Dimensionally stable, even in a damp environment
  • Robust, for handling on the construction site

Materials used

  • Fresh forest wood and sawmill wood, recycled material
  • Moisture-resistant amino resin
  • Faced with melamine resin impregnated paper

Pfleiderer LivingBoard:

Moisture resistant fine grade chipboard formwork panels

Thanks to its untreated surface and formaldehyde-free PU bonding, Pfleiderer LivingBoard is also suitable for formwork construction work and the reinforcement of formwork structures in damp conditions. The raw chipboard panels are extremely isotropic; in Class P5, they are suitable for load-bearing structures and in Class P7 for applications that call for extremely high load-bearing capacities.

Areas of application

  • Unfaced formlining with fine top layer
  • Ideal for stiffening the formwork structure

Properties

  • Formaldehyde-free and moisture resistant PU bonding
  • Isotropic strengths in longitudinal and transverse direction
  • Low thickness and edge swelling

Advantages

  • Reliable use due to homogeneous product properties
  • Isotropic strength properties in all panel directions ensure optimised cut-to-size

Materials used

  • Fresh wood from sawmill byproducts such as slabs, wood chips, chippings and thinnings
  • Formaldehyde-free PU binder

Pfleiderer LivingBoard face contiprotect:

The absorbent alternative

LivingBoard is also available as LivingBoard Face and LivingBoard Face Contiprotect. On these product versions, the panel face has been sanded slightly, or it features a heat-treated Contiprotect surface finish. Both versions are available in Class P5 and Class P7. They are used as absorbent formwork panels; LivingBoard Face Contiprotect offers a considerably delayed moisture absorption.

Areas of application

  • Unfaced formlining with coarse top layer
  • Ideal for stiffening the formwork structure

Properties

  • Coarse top layer, natural look
  • Formaldehyde-free and moisture resistant PU bonding
  • Isotropic strengths in longitudinal and transverse direction
  • Low thickness and edge swelling

Advantages

  • Isotropic strength properties in all panel directions ensure optimised cut-to-size
  • Protection against short-term exposure to driving rain due to heat-finished contiprotect surface
  • High screw pull-out resistance, even in the area of the edge

Materials used

  • Fresh wood from sawmill byproducts such as slabs, wood chips, chippings and thinnings
  • Formaldehyde-free PU binder
