Economical engineered column forms

Sonoco has leveraged over a century of paper-making experience to re-engineer its Sonotube concrete column forms.

For more than 70 years, contractors around the world have relied on the Sonotube brand of fiber forms for cost-effective column form setting.

The outcome is a proprietary fiber form with improved strength, toughness and durability in wet conditions that has resulted in superior strength-to-weight properties and the virtual elimination of "blowouts" – the most frequent mode of failure of wet fiber concrete tubes.

Versatile & Economical
