Production methods


The original form is either modelled in plaster or designed using a computer: image templates and digital drawings are converted into a file for the CNC machine. This drills the texture into boarding.


The plaster or drilled model is sealed with separating wax and given a shell frame. Finally, a liquid elastomer is poured onto the model to make the textured formliner.



After the plastic has hardened, the shell frame can be removed. The high elasticity of the formliner allows a detailed reproduction of the texture and makes it so robust, that it can be reused to create multiple façade panels (up to 100 times).


The concrete formliner is glued to the frame and waxed with separating wax before it can be filled with concrete.


The shell formliner can be filled with concrete either on site or at a prefabrication plant.


After the concrete has hardened, the façade panels can be easily removed. The formliner is then ready to use again, up to 100 times depending on the type.
