Tech Block--The New ICF on the Block

Made of 100% recycled EPS beads held in a cementitious matrix, Tech Block's new insulated concrete forms (ICFs) are similar in concept to the Rastra system.

There are quite a few insulated concrete form (ICF) systems on the market whose manufacturers make a variety of resource efficiency claims.

EBN came across an interesting newcomer, Tech Block, at this year’s Greenprints conference in Atlanta. Tech Block uses 100% recycled EPS in a cementitious matrix similar to the popular Rastra system (see EBN Vol. 5, No. 4).
