Badger Board® comes in custom thicknesses and widths laminated with a vinyl film laminate that is factory-applied in 16’ lengths. This concrete form provides enhanced alkalinity resistance versus other concrete forms available on the market today. Badger Board® is available in 1/2" - 1-1/8” thicknesses, and Badger Board® Flex is available in 1/8" and 1/4” thicknesses, making it perfect for radius pours. Both products are a one-step layup, and have waterproof glue bonds. All Contact Industries products are made in the USA.

Estimated Number of Pours
Job built: up to 30 pours per side Estimated pours are not guaranteed because the number of pours will vary due to jobsite handling and panel maintenance, vertical or horizontal use, form release agent, concrete mix design/strength, alkalinity, pour rate and other factors.
Optional Release Coating
Release coating initially not needed. If concrete becomes difficult to remove, coat faces with Solenis Parocol 700N, Nox-Crete or an equivalent. Avoid release agents containing fuel oils, recycled oils or solvents. Once surface is treated continue to clean surface and then retreat for the remainder of the life of the form.
Badger Board® is available in 1/8”, 1/4”, 3/4” and 1-1/8”. Standard widths are: 6”, 8”, 12” and 16”. Non-standard thicknesses, widths and lengths meeting volume requirements are available.
