Foam concrete is a versatile building material with excellent properties. Assembly line principles for the sequence of activities for preparation and work on the construction site. Sustainable design and construction
Foam concrete contains no toxic substances that might be harmful to the environment, making it an eco-friendly building material too. Because it consists of up to 80 percent air, it has excellent insulation, sound-absorbing and fire-resistant properties.
Solarcrete is a concrete structural insulated panel wall system constructed with EPS foam and concrete to build energy efficient concrete walls. The Solarcrete insulated wall panel system can save you 60 - 100% in heating and cooling energy costs over traditional construction methods.
Foamed Lightweight Concrete Posted on June 9, 2013 by Owen Geiger June 9, 2013 Foamed concrete and foamed cement made with Allied’s foam have very fine pore structure, unlike that made with conventional proteinaceous and surfactant foams.
The design of DURASHIELD? fiberglass foam core panels, the fiberglass support structure, and associated structural connections, shall be in accordance with the governing building code(s), the Strongwell Design Manual, and approved standards
Above: Placing panels of expanded polystyrene foam with reinforcing mesh on each side is easy and fast. Low velocity concrete is sprayed on both sides of the panel to construct walls that can handle both seismic and high wind forces.
"Quad-Lock offers a simple out-of-box solution for building basement foundations that meet Passive House requirements. It truly is a one-step assembly, requiring no form stripping, no interior framing and no additional insulation than what is included in the form.
Once the panels are sprayed or troweled with cement the walls and roof would be as strong as the regular scip panels, and maybe stronger as the steel pipe inserted into the foam would increase the shear strength over the small wire mesh used in regular scip panes.
Polyfoam provide a range of building and construction products.. These include materials for building single level and multi-level house walls and retaining walls, void formers for concrete slabs and hydronic underfloor insulating panel for heating and cooling.

I am planning to build a house using structural concrete insulated panels (SCIP)—that is, foam panels that have wire grids on each side and are faced with shotcrete, such as 3-D panels or the Solarcrete system.
Concrete insulated panels are a low-maintenance thermally efficient building envelope solution for low- and mid-rise applications. Insulated concrete is frequently chosen for offices, university buildings, hospitals and health care, apartments, condominiums, and dormitories, schools, warehouses, manufacturing, food processing, and clean rooms.
Insulating concrete forms combine one of the finest insulating materials, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), with one of the strongest structural building materials, steel reinforced concrete. The result is a wall system of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength and noise reduction.
SlenderWall is a hi-performance, thermal and fire code compliant, ASTM E119 fire tested, architectural precast composite cladding system. Reduce structural costs and on-site trades with the only envelope system that combines the proven technologies: architectural precast concrete, PVA fiber and welded wire reinforcing, stainless-steel fasteners ...
To make the pre-cast panels, foamed concrete is poured in to a large mould which includes tubes to make the hollow core. After 3 - 4 hours the large block of foamed concrete can be cut with an automatic wire cutting machine to make 12 panels.
And, as with any building system, ICFs are still just one piece of a larger green-building puzzle. How They Work ICFs are molded from expanded or extruded polystyrene into lightweight, open-cell blocks or panels that serve, like CMUs, as the forms for poured concrete above- and below-grade walls.
