The Advantage ICF System® by Plasti-Fab is a mainstream building product. Its popularity continues to grow as architects, specifiers, building contractors, and the public at large become familiar with the benefits of using Insulating Concrete Forming (ICF) systems in residential and commercial construction projects.
Advantage ICF is a one-piece, stay-in-place, insulating concrete form made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation. A series of strong plastic web connectors are permanently molded into two EPS panels to create a building block. The integral plastic webs act as the studs in a wall assembly, and are spaced at either 6 or 8 inches on center.
Advantage ICFs have a patented interlocking system along the top and bottom edges, which allows the blocks to securely connect together, much like kids’ Lego™ blocks. Reinforcing steel is placed on the plastic web connectors inside the block cavity which is then filled with concrete. After the concrete pour, the insulating EPS remains in place on both sides of the structure, providing a highly energy-efficient building envelope.
