Amvic™ Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) are a stay in place, 5-in-1 concrete forming system incorporating structure, insulation, an air/vapor barrier and a finish attachment. It is a cost effective, resilient and environmentally friendly construction system. Amvic™ ICF is revolutionizing modern construction and changing the way we build for a greener tomorrow.
Amvic’s innovative, reversible ICF blocks are among the strongest on the market with specially designed webs creating a poured concrete monolithic wall, making it a structurally superior way to build.
Amvic™ ICF R22 is a cost effective ICF block providing excellent performance and value to any construction project. The combination of patented FormLock™ interlock and reversible block makes for a fast and easy installation, while considerably reducing job site waste. A wide range of available forms and core sizes allows for limitless design possibilities.

Amdeck is a modular, one-way concrete slab with an integrated joists system that allows an engineer to maximize the clear span and potentially reduce the temporary shoring. It incorporates full length 10″ (254mm) lightweight steel C-channel joists to support temporary construction loads, utilizing the appropriate shoring. It can be used in a horizontal configuration for floors and roofs with typical finished unsupported clear spans up to 30ft (9.1m). It is perfectly suited for use with ICF walls or independently with other structural systems.
|Thermal Resistance||R19 hr.ft2.F/Btu (3.34 m2K/W)|
|Steel Joists Thickness||16ga, 14ga or 12ga|
|Size of Form||(h)12” x (w)32” x (l)24” / (h)305mm x (w) 813mm x (l)610mm|

Various solutions to help simplify and expedite ICF construction projects.
The monolithic reinforced concrete core makes for a much stronger structure when compared to framed construction. The combination of high strength and fire resistance rating (FRR) creates superior resistance to both natural and man-made disasters. The wall components do not lose their structural integrity when exposed to high moisture environments.
ICF wall has minimal thermal bridging due to the dual layers of continuous insulation. The sandwich wall assembly creates a very airtight envelope reducing undesired air leakage. The combination of the high thermal resistance, air tightness and thermal mass makes for a very energy efficient building.
The combination of increased air tightness and continuous insulation creates a superior building envelope which has no drafts and maintains the conditioned space within the optimal thermal comfort range. The addition of the concrete mass contributes to the highly sound absorbent walls (high STC rating) giving the occupants a quiet comfortable interior.
The highly energy efficient envelope can reduce the building’s carbon footprint while the durable and robust structure fortifies it against nature’s unavoidable hazards giving ICF buildings long service life. Additionally, wall components can be made from recycled materials minimizing the impact on the environment through reduced raw material demand.
We have used many ICF products but Amvic is leading the way with its ICF Plus R30 block which provides a better R value and is a much stronger block.

We chose Amvic™ ICF because their 6” web spacing is superior to other blocks we have examined and helpful for the pace at which we like to pour a large building.
— Ellis Coleman, EYC Companies
We like the Amvic™ ICF block for several reasons: ease of assembly, readily available and building efficiency.
