Hi, Otis. |
Thank you for your suggestions regarding to concrete pouring. It is good to know that exist some products to prevent the concrete bonding to other surfaces. I like the original "Cordless Drill" in the ad.

Alexis, As you know - I am in the concrete forming business - so I see anything and everything that you can imagine. Anything filled with concrete or near where concrete is being cast - gets concrete splatter on it, it's a fact of life and the nature of concrete. What we can do is learn from experience how to prevent said splatter from being a problem. Concrete that has overrun onto your formboards and bridgeboards is not a problem - because they will be stripped [wrecked] and discarded. The splatter that is on your anchor bolt assemblies should come-off quite easily. If it doesn't put a few drops of motor oil or WD40 at the top and give it a little time to seep into the tiny crack between steel and concrete. If this becomes problematic, you can use a stiff wire brush (after protecting your eyes) to remove the splatter. On any future jobs of installing anchor bolts, it's a good idea to put tape or something over the ends of the bolts and the nuts, etc. to prevent there from becoming a bond. |
My product line is Pocket Form Isolator (Home) and all of my forming products are made of High Density PolyEthylene Structural Foam (HDPE-)SF with 45% regrind. When concrete is cast against my forms - the concrete takes the shape of the formwork (Mechanical Bond) but doesn't make a chemical bond - regardless the forms in my product line stay where they are used forever - eliminating form removal and putting recycled plastic in an "inert application".

|JFPNCM||Bill's comments say it all. I've built and set forms on bridges, dams and basements and the only requirements were, they had to hold and stay in line.|

Since when was ANY concrete form "pretty". Pretty has nothing to do with it...only functional counts. |
Nothing wrong with that job Alexis.

Project = new tool |
Sounds like the definition of a beautiful project to me.

Another thing, Alexis, you built them on time and on budget; the General Contractor will be calling you again. Don't be greedy, but maybe put your prices up a wee bit (unless of course you made out OK on this project). |
Just because you're the new guy doesn't mean you shouldn't be getting market value for your work, especially when you do it right.
