Yes, as long as there is enough room for the plastic concrete to encase the rebar. That would be the dimension required between the form and rebar predicated on the aggregate size and space provided.

This is common for composite concrete like Filigree and other similar systems.

If a slab is being poured on top of two inch thick lightweight concrete
panels as a stay in place form, will that two inches count as cover for
post tensioning tendons and rebar? Thanks
