Durisol Insulated Concrete Forms: Green, Durable, Energy Efficient
Durisol insulated concrete forms are a versatile and eco-friendly building material. The forms are made from recycled scrap wood fiber bonded together with Portland cement, and contain integrated rockwool (mineral fiber) insulation.
Durisol forms are available in a variety of sizes and configurations, depending on the needs of a specific building. Some of the advantages of Durisol include the following:
The material is extremely sound-absorbent for excellent acoustic insulation.
Durisol ICFs are available in a range of configurations to fit the specific requirements of a project, providing thermal insulation R-values up to an impressive R-28.
The Durisol ICF system will not ignite, melt, or emit any toxic smoke, and it carries a 4-hour fire rating.
The ICF system is extremely durable, and stucco or drywall finishes can be applied directly to its surface.
Durisol contains no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and emits no toxins into the air.
Durisol’s high PH level from the cement content naturally prohibits mold and fungal growth.
Testing has shown Durisol to effectively resist any damage from termites even after years of exposure.
