For structures where the concrete will be visible after completion, off-form finish requirements must be considered from the outset. To achieve a high-quality finish, considerable attention needs to be given to the concrete mix, formwork materials, detailing and sealing, as well as industry best practice. Failures relating to off-form concrete finishes are often connected to the quality and grade of the formply product, the type of finish specified and how the formwork product was used.
