high degree of mechanization, low labor cost, short construction period.
On the outer side of the stressed steel bar of the wall, the module is inserted through the vertical staggered joints of the building block and organically matched with the special connecting bridge, and the metal hot-dip galvanized welded mesh is installed in the prefabricated slot at the outer end of the connecting bridge, and then combined The accessories connect and fasten the inner and outer side templates. The outer side of the module is 50mm, and the inner side has two cavity template combinations with the same thickness as the structural wall, or the cavity structure; pour concrete into the cavity structure separately, and wait until it reaches a certain level. Strength, remove the inner and outer sides of the template, which constitutes a sandwich insulation composite wall with integrated heat preservation, load-bearing and fire protection, referred to as sandwich insulation cast-in-situ system
The thermal conductivity of the energy-saving module is 0.028 w/m.k, which is equivalent to the thermal insulation effect of a 4.6-meter-thick ordinary brick wall. The thermal insulation performance is remarkable. It does not need to be heated in winter.The room temperature can reach 15-22°C when enough light and daily heat accumulation.
The strength of the energy-saving module is about 80% of the traditional wall, and the compressive strength is up to 28Mpa, the insulation layer has the same life as the building.

Insulated concrete forms create a structural concrete wall that is up to ten times stronger than wood-framed structures. ICFs have better structural integrity compared to framed walls for better resistance to the forces of nature.
2. Sound Absorption
ICF walls have much lower rates of acoustic transmission. The level of sound attenuation achieved is a function of the wall thickness, mass, component materials, and airtightness found within ICF.
3. Fire Protection
ICF walls can have a four-hour to six-hour fire-resistant rating. Unlike wood, concrete does not burn, and unlike steel, it does not soften or bend. ICF walls have been tested at up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit (typical for a common house fire), where wood walls would typically collapse within an hour.
4. Indoor Air Quality
Because they are generally constructed without a sheet plastic vapor barrier, ICF walls can regulate humidity levels, mitigate the potential for mold, and facilitate a more comfortable interior while maintaining high thermal performance.
5. Environmental Sensitivity
ICF walls can be made with a variety of recycled materials that can minimize the environmental impact of the building. They use fewer natural resources, such as gas, electricity, and wood. ICFs can generate as little as 1% construction waste. They are also manufactured without the use of any CFCs or chemicals.
ICF Building Process
ICF construction is often considered less demanding than typical construction. Less-skilled labor can be employed to lay the ICF forms (although careful consideration must be made when pouring concrete to make sure it joins fully and cures evenly without cracking). Unlike traditional wood beam construction, no additional structural support is required for openings, doors, windows, or utilities.
In most cases, ICF construciton will cost about 40% less than conventional construction, primarily because of the labor savings from combining multiple steps into one step. Above-grade ICF construction is typically more expensive, but when adding large openings, ICF construction becomes very cost effective. (Large openings in conventional construction require large headers and supporting posts, whereas ICF construction reduces the cost, as only reinforcing steel is needed directly around the opening.)
ICF buildings are generally less expensive over time, as they require less energy to heat and cool. Additionally, insurance costs can even be much lower, as insurance companies recognize that ICF homes and buildings are less susceptible to damange from earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, fires, and other natural disasters.
