IntegraSpec’s Updated and Improved Plastic Inserts:
During the past couple of years, we have been working diligently on improving our plastic inserts. Our Research and Development team has updated the insert design to improve on the quality, productivity and attaining optimal strength and fusion within our ICF panels.
We have molded many parts and conducted several successful field tests, including wall pours with different concrete core sizes and using high slump (8″ to 9″) concrete. We also have performed numerous tensile stretch tests on specialized equipment in order to confirm its strength equivalency as per our original inserts.
We are confident that the updated plastic inserts will perform as well or better than our original insert design. We will soon start shipping IntegraSpec ICF products with these new and updated plastic inserts.
