Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) are hollow blocks, planks, or panels made from rigid foam plastic insulation or from composites of cement and other mateterals and which have the ability to act as forms for cast-in-place concrete walls. While gaining in popularity as an alternative to light-frame construction, the lack of consistent and comprehensive standards has prevented ICF systems from reaching their full potential among builders and officials who may be unfamiliar with this construction technique.
