  • Wall forms u-values vary Some ICF thicker on outside EPS leaf thickness from 50mm to 70mm
  • 6 photos follow – large multiple elevation /use – Mexico, USA Forms vary in cavity size from 100mm to 300mm
  • 13 slides follow - Beyond the obvious product benefits ( thought there are some slides for design, engieering etc… here) – logistics, recycling , waste management, fewer skilled labour, smaller crews, faster building
  • 13 slides follow - Beyond the obvious product benefits ( thought there are some slides for design, engieering etc… here) – logistics, recycling , waste management, fewer skilled labour, smaller crews, faster building
  • 7 pics of external finishing
  • 1 slide here
  • 2 slides
  • Note NA , EU, UK roll out products before training KPIs need to be SMART – not just sales turnover
  • Build ICF Brazil short version

    7. 7. EPS Material & ICF Production 

 1. Pre-expansion 
 Polystyrene granules are expanded by free exposure to steam to form larger beads, each consisting of a series of non-interconnecting cells. 

2. Conditioning 
 After expansion, the beads still contain small quantities of both condensed steam and pentane gas. As they cool, air gradually diffuses into the pores, replacing, in part, the other components. 

3. Moulding 
 The beads are moulded to form boards, blocks or customised products. The mould serves to shape and retain the pre-foam, and steam is again used to promote expansion. During moulding, the steam causes fusion of each bead to its neighbours, thus forming a homogeneous product.

    8. 8. EPS Material & ICF Production 
 4. Shaping 
 Following a short cooling period, the moulded block is removed from the machine, and after further conditioning, may be cut or shaped as required using hot wire elements or other appropriate techniques. 
 5. Post-production processing 
 The finished product can be laminated with foils, plastics, roofing felt, fibre board or other facings such as roof or wall cladding material. 09/10/09 INSULATED CONCRETE FORMS Innovative, Sustainable & Strategic Opportunities
