is designed for the final EPS beads expansion.
After the preexpanded beads have been fed to the blockmold, they get thermal treatment. As the result the beads get expanded thus molding into an EPS block inside the machine. Saturated steam is used there as heat carrier.
Our company manufactures two types of ICF blockmolds that produce ICF blocks of different kinds:
1. Blockmold for the production of ordinary ICF blocks.
Ordinary ICF blocks are used for the erection of straight bearing walls.
2. Blockmold for the production of end ICF blocks.
End ICF blocks are used to form corners, doorways and window openings.
ICF shell thickness is chosen in accordance with the climatic conditions at the construction site. That is why we offer two variants of blockmold design:
- with shell thickness of 50 mm
- with shell thickness of 80 mm
(for the production of 25 density EPS)
