At the World of Concrete in Las Vegas in January 2019, Form-A-Tube was introduced to visitors at QuakeWrap’s booth. This was the first time Form-A-Tube was introduced to the public, and visitors were amazed as they further examined the product and its numerous applications.

The images below from a project completed in June 2019, show how Form-A-Tube was used to encapsulate five corroded steel piles.  The piles are 24 in. (600  mm) in diameter; the repair length was 14 ft (4.3 m) corresponding to the damaged portion of the pile at the splash zone.  The Form-A-Tube panels were special-ordered to a length of 14 feet.  Fourteen panels were connected together to create a tube with a diameter of 28 in. (710 mm).  The annular space between the tube and the steel pile was filled with grout.

Form-A-Tube panels can be custom-ordered to any length. However, one of the main features of this product is that shorter pieces of various lengths can also be assembled (by staggering the joints like tiles) to create a tube of virtually any length. As sown here on the left image, by staggering the joints, 2-ft and 4-ft long panels are connected to build a 6-ft tall or even longer tube.  The right image shows how 8-inch long pieces that are so easy to ship and store, can be assembled to create a longer tube.

Strips are compact for shipping and storage

This pallet contains 375 pieces of 8-ft (2.4 m) long Form-A-Tube strips; the total length of strips in this pallet is 3000 feet (900 m). This amount of materials can be used to build 62 tubes of 12-inch (300 mm) diameter, each 8-ft (2.4 m) tall, or 42 tubes of 18-inch (450 mm) diameter, each 8-ft (2.4 m) tall. Of course, unlike cardboard tubes that have a fixed length and diameter, there are virtually infinite combination of diameters and lengths of tubes that can be made with this single pallet of materials!
