Tuesday Trivia
ICFs are typically made with two layers of foam connected by plastic webbing that holds these layers together, creating a space between the foam for concrete. ICFs come in different widths and styles, and each ICF block interlocks with surrounding blocks during assembly. Unlike conventional wood or steel forms that get stripped off after concrete has hardened, the foam layer of ICFs stay in place for insulation. Just below the surface of the foam are plastic flanges made to accept screws for securing finished wall coverings. ICFs provide structure, insulation, vapour barrier and wall finish attachment functions all in one.
