UNDERWATER CONCRETE FORMING TIME SLASHED

Dramatic reductions in both time and manpower requirements for forming concrete structures underwater are possible because of a unique fiberglass form. The forms are manufactured by filament winding fiberglass and resin and are made in standard lengths of 60 feet and in diameters from two to 12 feet and even larger. The cylindrical forms are split lengthwise so that they can be spread open and slipped around a piling and allowed to snap shut. The fiberglass angle bars are lugged together to form a spillproof closure. If left in place, these forms provide protection against corrosion.
