Maybe this article can help you http://blog.angular-university.io/introduction-to-angular-2-forms-template-driven-vs-model-driven/

In this approach, you have to use FormControl then watch for value changes and then apply your mask to the value. An example should be:

...
form: FormGroup;
...


ngOnInit(){
    this.form.valueChanges
            .map((value) => {
                // Here you can manipulate your value
                value.firstName = value.firstName.trim();
                return value;
            })
            .filter((value) => this.form.valid)
            .subscribe((value) => {
               console.log("Model Driven Form valid value: vm = ",JSON.stringify(value));
            });

}
