Insulating Concrete Formwork is appropriate for any building form, with uses ranging from houses and basements to commercial, industrial, transportation and educational facilities. Polystyrene makes up the largest component of the form during the construction process. The standard forms have two panels which are 67mm in thickness. Once the forms are stacked and filled with concrete, the polystyrene is left in place providing complete thermal insulation for the finished building. The polystyrene blocks give a uniform, smooth surface ready allowing the structure to be finished just like a traditional build.
Insulating Concrete Formwork Association (ICFA) was established in 1992 to promote the use of Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF) in the UK and to show how the Polystyrene forms are used. NUDURA is proud to be a member of the ICFA. Click here to learn more about the ICFA
