THE FORMWORK NOE board ® Dated: 12.2011 Technical Information Technical Information NOEboard NOEboard – innovative construction NOEboard is a high-tech formwork facing consisting of a thermoplastic facing, a fibreglass loadbearing layer and a PU-foam core. This material combination gives NOEboard a number of out- standing properties. One of the most important is minimal water absorption, which prevents swell- ing and means the dreaded rip- pling effect is now a thing of the past. In addition, the innovative NOEboard sandwich construction combines low weight with good loadbearing capacity and ease of processing and handling. Figure 1: Construction of NOEboard formwork facing Thermoplastic facing, Fibreglass loadbearing layer, PU foam NOEboard – no swelling Water has no effect on NOEboard formwork facing. Conventional formwork facings usually consist of plywood. Ply- wood absorbs moisture and swells. This causes dimensional change. A 10% increase in mois- ture content brings with it expan- sions of 0.15% longitudinally (4 mm for l = 2650 mm) and 4% in thickness (0.8 mm for d = 21 mm) A further unpleasant accompani- ment of swelling is rippling. This happens when the wood swells up at unprotected spots, for example where damage has occurred to the surface coating or the board edges have been left unvarnished. Bulges protrude parallel to fibres and leave ugly Figure 2: Rippling in plywood formwork facing marks in the concrete. 2 Dated: 12.2011 TI NOEboard Subject to technical modifications. Technical Information NOEboard There is no danger of this with NOEboard because it does not absorb water. Plywood facings are usually coated with phenolic resin. This coating becomes worn to various degrees after time. As a result, the plywood facing has varying suction properties. The conse- quence is that new plywood formwork facing creates a differ- ent surface colouration to that of used facing. In contrast, the con- crete colouration does not change when NOEboard is used, because the suction of the formwork facing remains consis- tently low. NOEboard does not swell, which allows the board to be an extra 1 mm thick, thus increasing the stiffness of the formwork panels. Further plus points include a less noticeable impression of the Figure 3: Rippling impressions in concrete formwork frame in the concrete and an improved concrete surface.

The importance of this should not be underestimated when it comes to handling manually erected formwork. The weight advantage gained from NOEboard varies, depend- ing on the material type and fac- ing thickness. Compared with traditional birch plywood formwork facing, the advantage can be up to 1.9 2 kg/m . And against other fully synthetic formwork facings, NOEboard is between 0.8 and 2.3 2 kg/m lighter. 4 Dated: 12.2011 TI NOEboard Subject to technical modifications. Technical Information NOEboard NOEboard – nailed or screwed Just like plywood panels, NOEboard can be nailed or screwed in place. As the holding force on fixings is somewhat below that of wood, we recommend the use of ap- proximately 30% more nails or screws with NOEboard. Figure 6: NOEboard can be nailed or screwed.

Cleaning the NOEboard surface is extremely simple and can be done on site in the same way as for plywood panels. Cleaning with water is an excellent option in the factory or building yard. There are two methods: 1. High-pressure cleaning A high-pressure cleaner with a fan jet nozzle or a high-pressure surface cleaner with flat nozzles is suitable. Figure 8: Cleaning with a high-pressure cleaner fitted with Max. pressure 500 bar. a fan nozzle 2. Surface cleaning A rotation cleaner with cleaning pad and water is a suitable method.

Technical Information NOEboard NOEboard – easy to use Repair: The frequency of repair is re- duced and the repair itself is simple. NOEboard offers another advan- tage over conventional plywood formwork facing: Drilled holes and screw holes do not have to be repaired. Smaller holes close themselves during the next con- creting operation, while project- ing defects can be repaired sim- ply using a hotmelt process. A suitable repair kit is available from NOE. Note: NOEboard is made from polyurethane (PU) and can be re- paired by gluing.

NOEboard can be simply disposed of by incineration with ordinary refuse at temperatures of over 800 °C. The waste gases gener- ated by this process are harmless to health.
