A REVIEW OF THE USE OF CONTROLLED PERMEABILITY FORMWORK (CPF) SYSTEMS

The technical benefits of using a CPF (Controlled Permeability Formwork) system have been widely reported with extensive testing encompassing all aspects of durability, cement types and climatic conditions. It is not the purpose of this paper to review the technical benefits of using a CPF system, which are widely accepted within the industry as being very significant. Rather it is to review why a CPF system should be used, how they have been used in the UK and worldwide and what are the costs involved. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 867793.
