FAQs

How can I get a quote or pricing for my project?

For pricing contact Spec Formliners, Inc. at 714.429.9500 or email us with your pattern, material, and quantity requirements.

How do I determine which material would work best for my project?

Spec Formliners, Inc. offers 4 different material options for you to choose from:

  • SpecVac Single-use plastic: Affordable material, intended for projects where there is either a lot of cutting or the liners are going to only get used one time (such as a tilt-up). Maximum panel size is 4’x12’.
  • SpecVac Multi-use plastic: intended for 2-10 uses. Great on cast-in-place projects. Maximum panel size is 4’x12’.
  • ElastoSpec-Lite: A semi-elastomeric material intended for 15-25 uses. This is an unbonded formed material. Great for custom patterns, custom panel sizes, patterns with lots of relief and details, and moderate re-use on projects that require some cutting or trimming of the liners. Meets DOT specs for semi-elastomeric material.
  • ElastoSpec: Urethane bonded to a 3⁄4” plywood backing. 25 uses and up. Great for heavy highway projects and patterns that require lots of relief or detail, custom patterns and custom panel sizes. Meets DOT specs for elastomeric material.
