The Crown 44 brand has had proven success for over 50 years in the North American market and is our most popular Concrete Form MDO panel.   Contractors have come to expect the high quality of Crown as their go-to Concrete Form panel.

Features & Benefits

Crown 44 is constructed with high strength Douglas fir veneer.  The high resin content MDO is applied in a one-step process.  All adhesives used are fully waterproof phenolic resins that meet APA exterior glue bond standards.

Available in 48” x 96” and 24” x 96” in 3/8“ to 1-1/8”  thickness

  • APA Certified Panel
    Crown 44 panels are APA  certified Struc-1 concrete form panels that meet or exceed the APA’s Product Standard PS 1-09 for MDO Concrete Form.

  • Hi-Flow MDO Available
    Crown 44 panels are also available with Hi-Flow MDO. The higher resin content can help ensure you get the most out of your Crown 44 panels.

  • Two Piece Inner Plies
    Our two piece, Douglas fir inner ply construction method is engineered to provide a more solid panel that can better stand up to job site wear and tear.

  • Multi-Layer Edge Protection
    For additional moisture protection, all panels are edge puttied then coated with a silver, aluminized, resin-rich alkyd edge seal.

  • Factory-Applied Release Agent
    Crown 44 panels come factory coated with Nox-Crete Form Coating, a high quality, water-based, chemically active release agent.
