Spanish term or phrase: Berenjeno con bigote
Used in formwork for casting concrete columns. This is a broad PVC strip with parallel lines of sealing elastomer (the "bigotes"). It is fitted between metal formwork panels (set at right angles) to "achaflar" the corners.

"Berenjeno bi-componente formado por cuerpo de PVC y sellador de elastómero que le proporciona una gran estanqueidad al encofrado. Ofrece una gran calidad de acabado en los cantos de los pilares, así como una gran facilidad de montaje sobre el panel."

"En caso de que se desee achaflanar las esquinas de los pilares se montarán los berenjenos."

"Los berenjenos con bigote que ofrece XXXX se colocarán en cada esquina de unión entre paneles, tal y como se muestra en la siguiente imagen."
