shuttering method uses aluminum formwork to provide strength and continuity to
a structure. It's more important than the traditional ray, column, and slip-up
construction. This technology doesn't use columns and rays but involves walls
and crossbeams cast in easy-to-handle pre-engineered aluminum forms.
1990s, Mivan Technology developed aluminum formwork systems. Later, they
started manufacturing these systems, so they became known as Mivan Technology.
Mivan in India
So far, the
technology has not been used significantly in India. The idea is famous in Gulf
countries, Europe, and some parts of Asia. However, its use is being promoted
in India to recognize the boldest authorities scheme – Housing for all by using
technique of the Mivan Construction
wall rebar - wall rebar is used to give structure to the building
and to support the concrete until it reaches half of its
required strength. The aluminum formwork is cast
around factory-manufactured steel mesh and assembled directly
of Aluminium Formwork
room-sized wall and floor panels are erected along wall stiffeners. These
aluminum alloy plates are precision machined and easy to use. These structures
also incorporate space for other elements such as windows, ducts, doors,
stairs, façade panels, and chajas. The formwork is connected using a bolt wedge
system and can be dismantled immediately after the concrete structure is
pouring the formwork, pour high-quality concrete. This concrete takes the shape
and form of the pour and is later removed to create a structure made entirely
of cement concrete and supported by the rebar of the walls. Aluminum molds can
be reused at least 250 times, minimizing waste on the construction site.
are the advantages of Mivan formwork technology?
and most important advantage of using this technology is construction speed.
Narendra Karkhanis, his COO at Pashmina Developers, said: “Mivan Technology
cuts construction time by almost half compared to traditional methods.
Structurally, this technology makes the building more earthquake-resistant and
durable.” Because there are few, there is a little leak in the building, too,
and little maintenance is necessary. Mivan The structure is one piece, and the
walls and panels are smooth-finished. Additionally, this technology offers the
possibility of extracting more carpet area compared to conventional technology.
Mivan Technology's structure also has some drawbacks. Edge lines may be visible in the finished structure due to the small size of the components used. Once a structure is created, it is difficult to change and the building lacks flexibility. Walls and ceilings may also show cracks due to shrinkage. By using control strips within the structure or by using fly ash to reduce the heat of hydration, this can be prevented.
