Adjust-a-Trak Penetration-free Forming System鈩?
The MILCO Adjust-a-Trak鈩? Penetration-free Forming System is based upon the use
of MILCO EdgeTrak鈩?, FormBlock鈩?, CommonTrak鈩? and TrakCap鈩? forms 鈥?
re-useable, height-adjustable PVC U-shaped channel tracks with built-in 45-degree
chamfers at the base (See the MILCO Website for job-site photos.)
With the MILCO Adjust-a-Trak鈩? System, quick installation of edge forms and
common forms is made with these easy steps...
(1) For edge form installations, MILCO 6" x 6" PVC FormBlock鈩?
panel support blocks are installed on 24" centers on the floor slab
against the snap lines along the perimeter edges of the slab with
MILCO Tilt-Up Spray Adhesive. A suitable panel form, such as
standard height 1c"-thick iLevel鈩? TrusJoist庐 TimberStrand庐 LSL
panel form, is inserted into the EdgeTrak鈩? channel and then together
fitted against the "L"-shaped 5" x 6" concrete form brackets that have
been pre-attached to the MILCO FormBlocks鈩? .
(2) To adjust panel height, a 1c" - wide LSL or plastic spacer of
pre-determined height is inserted into the Adjust-a-Trak鈩? channel
before insertion of the panel form. The spacers are distributed along the
Adjust-a-Trak鈩? as necessary to support the ends of each length of LSL
panel form that will rest on top of the spacers.
(3) CommonTrak鈩? sections are installed against a chalk line directly
to the floor slab with MILCO Tilt-up Spray Adhesive. A suitable panel
form, such as standard height 1c"-thick iLevel庐 TimberStrand庐 LSL
panel form, is then inserted into the CommonTrak鈩? channel. Finally,
MILCO TrakCap is placed over the previously inserted panel form to
finish the installation.
The Adjust-a-Trak鈩? Advantage
The MILCO Adjust-a-Trak Penetration-free Forming System鈩?
offers Tilt-up and Precast many advantages...
i ELIMINATES FLOOR SURFACE DAMAGE / NO MORE SPALLING 鈥?
MILCO Spray Adhesive does away with the need for hole patching and other
post-tilt-up floor repairs to the slab surface.
i EASY TO APPLY - SAVES TIME & KEEPS YOUR EXPENSES DOWN 鈥?
Compared to the nail-down method, overall installation time and expense for
tilt-up, including labor, is reduced by at least one-half!

i IT WON'T LET GO UNTIL YOU WANT IT TO 鈥? MILCO Spray Adhesive will
stay on the job until your work is finished, come rain or shine! Keeps your
forms and strips and forms securely attached in cold, wet, humid or hot, dry
weather for 30 days or more.
i APPLIES ON COLD OR HOT, DRY OR WET SURFACES 鈥? MILCO Spray
Adhesive is not materially affected by moisture or humidity and it is suitable for
most wet or dry-weather installations where floor slab or casting bed
temperatures can range from 33潞 F to 160潞 F.
iLEVEL鈩? TRUS JOIST庐 TIMBERSTRAND庐 LSL PANEL FORMS ARE
PERFECT FOR FORMING 鈥? TimberStrand庐 LSL concrete panel form comes
in long lengths and works perfectly with MILCO鈥檚 Adjust-a-Trak鈩? System to
match your panel forming needs, minimizing the cost and time spent ripping
or stacking forms to match panel depths.
ENGINEERED WOOD ADVANTAGES 鈥? TimberStrand庐 LSL concrete panel
form is workable and easy to handle. It is straight, strong, and consistent, and
resists the common problems of bowing, twisting, and shrinking. Allows crews
to set up and align form work with minimal splicing and labor.
i GIVE YOUR WORK A TRULY PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE 鈥? Complex
reveal designs are a breeze with MILCO's Tilt-Up Spray Adhesive and PVC or
Premium Moisture-Resistant (鈥淢R鈥?) MDF! The finished appearance of the
decorative trim work is precise with well-defined edges.
i PERFECT FOR CASTING BEDS 鈥? MILCO Spray Adhesive works with all
common precast casting bed surfaces, including steel, fiberglass and concrete
. . . even with vibrating casting beds!
i DRAMATICALLY EXTENDS THE LIFE OF PRECAST CASTING BEDS 鈥?
MILCO Spray Adhesive completely eliminates the need for all destructive
methods of attaching forms and reveal to your casting beds, including drilling
and welding. Precasters can average FIFTY- plus pours from each casting
i EASY FORM & STRIP REMOVAL 鈥? Just insert a flat blade or scraper under
one end of a form or strip after the pour or lift-up... it pops right off the floor
slab! And if you need to correct a mistake in positioning the form or strip
before the pour, removing and re-locating is a snap!
i NO CLEAN-UP MESS OR STAINS 鈥? Leaves very little residue, most of
which sluffs off with UV exposure. Any left-over residue is easily removed with
a high pressure water sprayer, scraper, wire brush or 3M鈩? Adhesive Remover
