Amvic R30 Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are a stay in place formwork manufactured using two 3.25” (83mm) Type II/Type 2, closed cell, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels connected by polypropylene webs placed at 8” (203mm) on center. Amvic ICF R30 is a higher performance ICF block where EPS panel thickness has been increased by 30% making it the highest R-value of any factory assembled block in the industry. The forms offer a 6-in-1 system that provides structure, insulation, vapor barrier, air barrier, sound attenuation and attachments for interior finishes and exterior cladding. Completed Amvic ICF walls offer a sustainable and resilient building structure with R-Value of 30, ASTC rating of 47+ and a fire resistance rating (FRR) of 3+ hours.
The thicker EPS panels allow the R30 blocks to switch to longer web spacing allowing them to maintain their market leading form capacity strength. fully reversible FormLock™ interlocking system with a depth of 1” (25mm) provides superior connection strength between blocks while allowing for a fast and easy installation. Webs have built-in clips which can hold two courses of reinforcing steel greatly reducing the need for additional tying. A wide range of available forms and core sizes allows for limitless design possibilities. Amvic ICF is manufactured with over 60% recycled materials (by weight) while keeping construction waste to a minimum (>1%).
