Octaform forms and protects your tank walls in one step. Our patented system assembles quickly without specialized labor or heavy equipment. The SLT™ watertight panels provide a finish that is built-in, eliminating the need for liners, cladding or sealants.
PVC STAY-IN-PLACE FORMWORK + LINER FOR CONTAINMENT TANKS
With Octaform, forming a curved wall poses no more difficulty than a straight one. Our patented system is custom manufactured to your specifications, so you can cost-effectively form just about any design in a fraction of the time of traditional forming.
Octaform’s watertight finish is built-in. You won’t be waiting for extra trades to seal, protect or clad your concrete tank. Our tanks are proven to offer a seal that requires no re-coating and will last the life of your tank improving concrete hardness by as much as 40% due to prolonged curing. These combined factors are demonstrated to reduce the risk of cracking or failure of the tank even under seismic conditions.
Sealed and Watertight
Octaform’s patented SnapLockTight™ panel creates a completely sealed wall surface that is watertight (contains water to beyond 68 PSI). The panel is ideal for environments that are sensitive to bacteria, mold, and mildew such as aquaculture and wastewater treatment.
It is CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) approved. No caulking is required where panels join. We recommend products that will seal the ceiling and roofing interfaces.
SnapLockTight™ (SLT™) is supplied as a flat panel in white. Custom colors are also available.
REBARUses standard rebar as specified by your engineer.
OPTIONAL INSULATIONThermal mass of concrete, air tightness, added EPS insulation provides excellent R-values.
WATERTIGHT & GASTIGHTSLT™ panels create a completely sealed wall surface that’s watertight and gastight. No caulking is required where panels join.
PVC PANELOutside panel protects the concrete and optional insulation from harsh chemicals and corrosive environments. Octaform PVC meets the strict sanitation standard set by the CFIA.
WALL THICKNESSConnectors are available for walls between 4" to 24” thick.
CONCRETECompatible with all standard concrete formulations. The system requires vibrating as specified and is poured in 4’ lifts.
WATERSTOPThe correct installation of specified waterstop ensures the tank is watertight and gastight.
