The group is into the manufacturing of plastics for the last 37 years and introduces products of the latest technology that include plastic raw materials, plastic molded furniture, plastic corrugated flute board, Blow molded water tanks, and Plastic formwork systems. The company is now introducing light weight scaffolding and supporting system for formwork.

Nova formwork system is the first Indian plastic modular formwork system, introduced around 4 years ago. Looking at the Indian construction industry facing the tough challenges in cast-in-situ operations using conventional plywood and steel formwork, it was necessary to introduce a system which could be easy to use and also reduce the cost.

NOVA formwork is a leading company in the development of shuttering system manufactured from composite plastic material. Plastic shuttering building system represents a revolution in the area of shuttering because of its universality, lightness, simplicity, durability, solidity, resistance to temperature change and of course its price competitiveness due to repeatability. This is the only shuttering that can be used in salt and fresh water without any damage. It gives very good surface finish with no need to plaster and also ease of use.

The panels can be fixed and attached with each other with the help of the locking wedges and pins which is of the exact size and this fits into the panels exactly and there is no gap between the panels when locked. The locks help the various panels to join together and make it a single panel as the panels lock very well and there is no leakage of concrete from in between the panels.

While making the walls, these panels are attached in two lines having the face of the panels parallel to each other in such a way that the panel tie rod holes match one another and by using aligner/wallers the tie rods can be reduced and with the help of spacers have a exact distance between the two panels as of the size of the walls.

It has already been used in all types of construction like pile caps, foundations, rafts, columns, shear walls, retaining walls, walls, slab, beam, monolithic formwork etc. It is the best system for casting cast in situ cellular low weight concrete walls and has been adopted by LNT in their projects for inner walls in Gurgaon and also by some other contractors in Lucknow. The slab system is with the drop head system with cup locks where u can achieve slab cycles of 4-5 days as well. Now slab plates also available with plastic steel combination. Nova is open to association with companies for its rental and sale in different cities who have a local presence in construction field in that city.
