What are Insulated Concrete Forms

Insulated Concrete Forms in MinnesotaIntegraSpec® is an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) consisting of 2 panels of expanded polystyrene (EPS) married with high impact polystyrene spacers used to hold patented webs designed to rebar as needed. Once stacked together, these forms represent a mold ready for concrete placement, similar to a traditionally poured concrete wall. IntegraSpec®'s forms never leave the concrete. This wall system now serves a multitude of tasks:

  1. Structural Support: (Concrete & Steel)
  2. Super Insulation: (EPS panels & Thermal Mass, 40+ R-Performance)
  3. Strapping/Furring: (1 5/8" Spacers at 8" on center)
  4. Air/Vapor Barrier: (Low permeate EPS in continuous contact with concrete)
  5. Stucco Substrate (Single material EPS Type II)
